April 29, 2010 joycepsouth

It was three weeks ago today that mom had her first surgery.  It has been a long three weeks, but I can truly say that today I have been able to see marked progress. She got from her bed with ease and was able to return to bed with little assistance.  She is remarkable – God is Good!!!!  She still has a long way to go, but she is definitely moving in the right direction.

Dr. came by while I was here.  Asked about the pathology report from her last surgery — he said that a blood clot was discovered in the area around the resection.  He feels that the blood clot limited the blood supply to that area of the colon which caused this area to deteriorate, the colon then started leaking causing the infection.  It is good to know that it did not have anything to do with that ugly “C” word that seems to raise its head in unsuspecting ways.  He did say however that malignancies cause greater coagulation in the blood which could have possibly been the cause of these blood clots.

He went on to tell us that he was in a seminar today in which he shared mom’s case.  We are so blessed to have a wonderful dr.  Mom expressed her appreciation to him again as he was leaving today.  His humble reply was that “She had many prayers from all over.”   Hope you have a good Thursday.  Love to all
