Stormii is Fine!

This is Miteymite, here to tell you that the surgery went well and Stormii is fine. Thank you everyone for your prayers. We know they helped her come through this. The doctor drained over 5 liters of fluid off the cysts. There were five of them, measuring 40 centimeters across the back. The doctor had to try 5 different tools before he could find one to cut out the cysts. They must have been there for years and years to have gotten so mature. The doctor said it was like performing five separate surgeries. It took over five hours to perform. Now you can imagine, with all that excess stuff in her, her organs were getting pushed every which way. They expect everything to come back to its right place. The real miracle is that her kidney, where the cysts were attached, is a little flat right now, but not damaged. No one can understand how she walked around like that and didn't even feel any pain, much less have any lasting damage. This is where God and your prayers come in. Stormii looked terrific when she woke up. Her color was good, her hair wasn't even tangled, and she was so alert. They had her on morphine for the pain, and she is a really cute drunk. She was so thirsty, and trying to wheedle ice chips, even to the extent of calling her friends and asking them to bring her some ice. The doctor relented last night and let her have some fluids. Guppyman stayed at the hospital last night [those two are so crazy in love they're almost nauseating] and I took Stormii's mom & grandma back to their house for the night. Today Stormii has to walk, and walk, and walk. This will put everything back into its proper place. At first the doctor said 24 - 48 hours in the hospital, but since the surgery lasted so much longer than he expected, he is now saying 48 -72 hours. Of course, Stormii is ready to get out now. Have a wonderful day, everyone. We are all rejoicing.
