    Post Update on Wifes medical

    For those of you who offered sympathy in Yubetcha's thread, here is an update.

    For the rest, ignore the boring details.
    <font style=color:white;background-color:white> Adrianne had surgery for bone cancer on Friday last.

    During a 13 hour operation, they removed 4 inches of her left mandible (lower jaw,) and reconstructed it with a piece of bone from her hip and some skin from her thigh.

    She is doing well and may come home tomorrow. She is breathing with a trache tube, and must be fed liquids via a nasal catheter.

    She is having little pain, and the prognosis is good. It will be some weeks before she will be engaging in more than light activity. At the moment her attitude is good, although not being able to speak is a bit frustrating. </font>

    So I hope you will bear with me if my appearance here is spotty.

    Thanks for your earlier encouragement and good wishes.

    It must be a very difficult time for both of you. I hope she has a very speedy recovery and that this stressful time is soon nothing more than a distant memory.

    Unhappy Hi theBlackman...It's good to see that her

    prognosis is encourging and that in time it will go better for her albit a difficult time to readjust to the changes that have occured because of this. With you there to help comfort her, I'm sure that will help much as well. Hopefully, you'll get the help you need as well to see her through this time.

    My Daughter was able to come up with me for a few days and that is a blessing to keep me on my toes She will leave next Wednesday but tomorrow she and I will go to Antioch to see David and family.

    My best wishes as always for you and yours. P.

    That's wonderful news tBm and with your upbeat attitude Adrianne can only benifit from the good care you'll be giving her... my prayers are with you both and your families... since she won't be talking for a bit perhaps a journal/diary would be a lovely way for her to channel some of that frustration

    God bless!!!!

    Hilight the white area to see what it says.

    tBM,

    My prayers go out for you and your wife as well. Sometimes pain opens our eyes, makes us more appreciative, and draws us closer to the ones we love. I hope she recovers and that all of the above has happened for both of you. Take care.

    tBm: Just happened by -- like *m*, I don't know you, but I want to extend my best wishes for your wife and you. As one who's been in your position, I also want to say: Take care of yourself. That's one of the best things you can do for her.
