My step mom has has quite a rough journey these last few days. She had surgery last Tuesday to bypass the pancreas. It seems to have worked and she was allowed to start eating clear liquids yesterday.

And then today. She has internal bleeding and is probably in surgery right now. They don't know where it is coming from, so she had a CT scan before the surgery so they could try to figure it out.

Update: No surgery today. The doctors think that the bleeding is coming from her intestines so they're going to do a colonoscopy tomorrow morning. She is back in ICU tonight, probably good because it sounds like she needs more care than the regular floor can provide.
