it happened again


t happened again. Yesterday we were confident that Mary had progressed in her recovery far enough that the doctor would release her and let us take her home. But wouldn't you know it, another complication reared its ugly head and put a stop to that all to brief optimism.
It seems that one of the drain tubes they had inserted the day before turned out to be too small to accommodate the volume of infected fluid that needed to come out. That small tube got blocked by debris in the fluid causing the infected fluid to backup in her pancreas and ruining any chance of her coming home. So this morning they will insert a larger tube to get back on track. She will most likely be there in the hospital for at least two more days, assuming nothing else goes wrong.
What else could possibly go wrong?
