Anyway...picture 1) The Surgeon (left), his assistant (middle) and the nurse (right). Very good team. The surgeon knew more English than I knew Bulgarian...so we chose to communicate using English. It was broken...but good enough.
Picture 2) This is the entrance to Role II hospital...nothing to write home about, (what?) but I thought you might like to see where I went. The entrance does not do the hospital justice...it's actually a very nice place...I was impressed, and actually wouldn't mind spending more time there.
Picture 3) This is the reanastamosis in action. In the surgeon's left forcep is the proximal colon. In his right forcep is the distal end. The posterior, or "back" side of the colon has already been sewn together, and the anterior, or "front" side will be next. They didn't wait for you to read this...it's already done.
She is recovering nicely and will now be able to poop in the normal fashion :)

Haven't been in the greatest of moods the past couple of days....work has been tiresome and frustrating. It's better to just say hi and end the post before I bore you with Afghanicrap. Please see my friends post at: docnthedirt.blogspot.com he's got some new stuff up.
