Surgery went well

Wanted to let everyone know that my surgery went really well!! No intestines were taken out!! My dr was able to clear some blockage without removing the intestines. They took out my gallbladder, did many biopsies of the small intestines, took out some mesenteric lymph nodes and fixed a hernia. So a lot of work, but no where close to what I was expecting. Im in a considerable amount of pain, but taking a lot of meds to help with the pain. Hopefully this will be the end of my battles for ever, and if not for ever than a very long time. I will keep you all posted on how things are going over the next few days. Thanks again for all your prayers and support, you guys are nothing short of amazing!
