My granddaughter comes home today from the hospital where she had lung surgery 2 weeks ago. She is doing very well and won't start back on the chemo until after tomorrow (Thanksgiving).
I will try to keep the rest as short as possible. Since October 6/7, this has happened to my mom (she's 79) - ER w/severe belly pain, perforated bowel, emergency surgery, colostomy, sent to rehab 2 days, sent back to hospital with pneumonia and sepsis; spent 8-9 days there, back to rehab - came home on a Saturday (11th, I think) and by Sunday night/Monday morning, couldn't walk, low BP (60/40), back to ER in ambulance, everything checked out fine, back home. Next day, couldn't walk, almost passed out, O2 levels dropped drastically, back to ER in ambulance, CT Scan showed pulmonary embolism. Spent from Tuesday to Friday in hospital and is finally back home and doing very well!! So yes, we have a LOT to be thankful for this year!
I'll try to be back sometime over the long weekend with an update. I have stash to show off!!! LOL!
