    Prayers & good thoughts needed.

    Michelle's surgery yesterday did not go as well as we had thought. The pain she was experiencing yesterday after the procedure was due to a perforation in her esophagus from the balloon inflation to treat her Achalasia. This tear allowed stomach fluids to enter her chest area around her lungs and heart. This is a very very bad thing.
    We went to the E.R. at 3 am and she was in surgery at 8 am to repair the tear and remove all of the fluid, which saved her life. (If there is a delay in diagnosis, the mortality rate exceeds 90%)
    While yesterday's procedure was done via a tube down her throat, this morning's required actual cutting in her side to drain the fluids and actually do the repair.. She will also have a G tube put in place for feeding since swallowing food isn't possible. This tube will be in there for approx 3 months.
    She is in ICU now and resting.She will remain in the hospital for 7-10 days.
    I would appreciate your kind words, prayers, and well wishes.
    She is my life.
