Mom has had a wonderful week.  Went to two dr. last week and they were so pleased with how well she is doing.  She is making progress each day, although it is little and slow. She is very optimistic about things and has a wonderful attitude.

The dr. removed her buttons and she said she is not longer Raggedy Ann.  Her incision is almost completely healed.  Our biggest hurdle right now is the ostomy.  There are time it will stay in place for several days, then at other times, we have to change it three or four times in one day.  Doing things the exact same way!  Go figure.

I have been without internet after a storm and have not been able to blog as much as I would like.  Will keep you posted.  Going to see the oncologist on July 7th.  Surgeon and he are going to consult about Chemo before our visit.

TPN at home is going great!  Dr. will be doing an intestinal study to see how much intestine is left.  He said it was so acute that he did not really know how much was left, he removed it in a mushy mass.  Will continue the TPN at home until the study is complete.

Love to all–
