Nancy is home, resting in her recliner. Due to insurance issues, the doctor discharged her from the hospital after a 23 hour stay with a request for her to come to his office. He reported that as insurance would not authorize more than one day, they worked hard to discharge her prior to 24 hours so she did not incur a large out of pocket bill. Although it's scary to come home so quickly after such a major surgery, (without even having eaten solid food yet no less!), there is definitely no place like home. Nancy's surgeon reported that he was happy with how the surgery went. She's home with antibiotics, pain meds, anti-nausea meds, ready to begin the recuperation process.
We are all thankful for the answered prayer of surgery without immediate complications. We want to thank all of you for your continued prayers regarding the outcome of the pathology reports, Nancy's healing and well being during chemo treatment, and peace of mind and heart throughout the process. Thank you also for your many expressions of concern and love both to Nancy and those of us in her family through visits, calls, texts, and messages. The love of so many is heartwarming to us! Hopefully in the next few days, Nancy will feel up to keeping you posted herself, but until then we will let you know of any changes.
