They took her back for surgery at about 7:30a. The surgeons will be removing her ureters from her bladder and reimplanting them in a different place where when her bladder is full it will press against the ureters and prevent it from refluxing back to the kidneys. We expect to hear from the surgeons about once an hour until the surgery is over at about 10:45a.
Hopefully, this will be our last visit to Children's Hospital until Ella's follow-up visit in about three months.
Here's to a happy, healthy new year for 2010.
