Aunt Mavis

My Aunt Mavis, one my father's younger sisters went to have a colonoscopy and something went horribly wrong. She's had emergency surgery to repair the damage that happened doing the colonoscopy and now she's on a ventilator.



Update
Aunt Mavis was put into an induced sleep presumably to help her heal. She's still on the ventilator.  The docgtor punctured my aunt when he removed the polyp and didn't notice until too late.  She will have to wear a colostomy bag for a while and she's going to have to go to breathing therapy. My uncle Francis is furious as is all the family.


Further update
My aunt was able to speak to my mother on the phone for a few seconds. Thank you all for your prayers.

I can't understand why the colonoscopy went wrong. It's a rather simple procedure. I had one a few years back without any trouble. I will pray for Mavis.

So sorry, Dymphna. I'll offer my Mass this morning for Mavis.

Your family and especially your Aunt Mavis are in our prayers tonight.

I hope she has an uncomplicated recovery.
