Update on Sam

Sam went to the surgeon today. She was a gruff, older lady who obviously knows her business. She was very matter of fact and said that not only should his gall bladder go, but also his appendix. She said removing the appendix also will add only about fifteen minutes to the surgery and won’t require any extra incision. It will all be done laproscopically with four small incisions. Since it is a double surgery, Sam will have to stay in the hospital overnight. The surgery is scheduled for 9am at the Children’s Hospital in Johnson City.

        I am so glad to hear that he finally has some answers to his health problems. I had gallbladder surgery in Oct. 2009. It went very well.
