Ernie went into surgery Thursday AM…came out with 2 stents placed end to end as the blocked area was a little long. The blood flow is wonderful now! He may need another stent later as there’s another area that bears watching. Also, if this surgery doesn’t fix the problem, Ernie may need a pacemaker. We’ll go back in about 10 days for them to do the EKG and check him out. That T-shirt quilt that daughter Stacie and grands made awhile back went to the hospital with me…I spent my whole time wrapped up in it! It was warm and cozy. What a comfort.
We arrived home about 3PM yesterday and I’ve done nothing but fuss at Ernie to lay down, leave stuff alone and take it easy. he cannot drive until Monday and no lifting, pushing, pulling till next weekend. You know how hard it is to keep an active man down????
As for me…I’m waiting on a call back from MD ANDERSON. My local Dr. thinks we need to look at other options of medication that she nor the clinic she’s associated with have access to. My PET showed some reduced size tumors (yeah!!) but it also showed several new tumors and that parts not what I wanted to hear. Anyhow, we’re in a holding pattern until I get an appointment.
Nice Boss Lady came and took care of kitties while we overnighted in Abilene with Ernie. They don’t look any the worse for wear…but I haven’t seen NBL yet, lol! They’re really a handful to deal with.
The flowers for next Granddaughter’s wedding arrived and we’ve picked up ribbons and needed supplies. Maybe tomorrow I’ll feel like starting on them. I think the corsages will be real pretty…still mulling options for the boutineers. The shotgun shells are a challenge, lol. It’s good that I like challenges.
Nothing new from here for now.
