Whitney Update- Post Surgery

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Goodbye Cranky Panky!

The surgery went very well.  Her pancreas is out and she is awake!  Her pancreas was hardened and atrophied about 1/2 the size of a normal pancreas. We are fortunate they did not have to take out her spleen but they did take part of her small intestine and stomach.

The doctors were able to harvest islet cells and the doctors are very pleased with the results. WOO HOO!

The family has been let in to see her and she is awake and able to speak to them although she is on heavy pain meds.She is still in extreme pain and prayers are still VERY IMPORTANT.  Thank you to everyone who has been praying around the clock for our dear friend.  This is truly the best gift anyone can give right now.

As soon as we have more updates I will post. 

Sorry my posts are not as clever as yours :)  We love you very much and you have no idea how many people have been praying for you and your family.

More updates to come.



  1. I'm praying for Whitney and the Yates family. Have a speedy recovery. You can never have too many prayers.

  2. Love looking back and reading my friends amazing!
