Update on Sarah

Well the test results are back and they determined that Sarah's gallbladder is NOT functioning. This means she has to have it removed. However here is the good news.
SHE IS COMING HOME TO HAVE IT DONE!!!
She could be here as early as today!! I am so excited to see her! I am not so excited that she has to have surgery but at least she gets to be home to have it done!
I wonder if her gallbladder not functioning has anything to do with her missing spleen?
For those unaware some of my family have a heredity genetic blood disorder called Spherocytosis. Their red blood cells are shaped differently so their body kills off the healthy cells. The best prevention is to have the spleen removed. My 2 brothers and 1 sister all have this so did my Dad and he had to have his gallbladder removed also.
So there it is. We are waiting for the paper work and then she'll be heading home. She is not being released so she will have to have a companion while she is home so hopefully I'll get to help out!

I am glad they found out the problem. That will be so wonderful to see her and get to visit with her! I hope the surgery goes well and that she gets to return to the mission field quickly!! Tell her hi from us!!

I hope all goes well for her. Does she get to go back when she's all healed up? Tell her we love her.
