Her surgery on Tuesday went longer than expected, 7 1/2 hours, but it did go well. During the surgery they removed all of the abscess and her spleen which was integrated with the abscess, the vast majority of her stomach, and reconfigured her intestines to provide more absorption.
Yesterday she went in again for an exploratory surgery to see if there were any leaks or bleeders, but none was found and everything looked good. A chest x-ray was done and an area of fluid was present near her diaphragm. This morning they drained that fluid and installed a drain for that area.
In general, Dina is improving and is walking some. I am doing updates on her Facebook page.
