If it is a 6 week recovery we just nailed one! Five to go. Bill has been doing great. He has discomfort (not pain) but mostly from not being able to get comfortable enough to rest well. The incision looks good and the shortness of breath comes and goes. Which is also normal at this time. He takes pain pills every 4 to 6 hours depending on how his day is going. Stool softeners are helping with the pooping end of it. All I can tell you is that men are worse than children when it comes to not feeling well…..and so demanding. So unlike Bill normally. But perfectly understandable. Bill has 2 doctors appointments tomorrow. His cardio guy in the morning and his surgeon in the afternoon. We have written down a few questions for them.
I had my port cleaned out today by Tracy at St. Luke’s Fusion Center. Always good to see and talk with my girls. Betsy still isn’t back from her knee surgery. So I missed not seeing her. Hopefully she will be back in the saddle again real soon. I’m enjoying this cancer free time and hope it stays away for a long time. I am totally devoted to Bill’s recovery and so glad the good Lord didn’t let them both happen at the same time.
There is going to be a big fund raiser here in Fulshear on July 21, 2012. Please put this date on your calendars. More details will be coming soon. The Leilani Essary Hurles Ovarian Cancer Research Fund is underway. I am teaming with a friend in Fulshear who will be selling jewelry while I will be selling books and raising money. Wine and cheese will be served. Be sure to spread the word.
