daggiesmom Posted September 2, 2006 Share Posted September 2, 2006 Joanie asked me to post this short note: Hi Everyone, Here's my update -- As of now, the docs think that the surgery went very well and consider it a success. I am on anti viral & antibiotic meds as well as prednisone and they seem to be working. The pneumonia & pneumonitis in my good lung are showing improvement. I am still on oxygen but it is in ever decreasing amounts. They had found aspergillus at the surgical site, so I am also receiving anti-fungal medication to prevent that from causing problems. You all have been down that road with the medicines. After 24 days in the ICU, they moved me to the respiratory step down unit on Thursday night. So once they finish clearing up the pneumonia & pneumonitis, I should be on my way home. I'm hoping by next week. Brian has been such a doll. Couldn't have been in better hands and all 'n all we're pulling thru. I sure hope I never have to go through this again. Thank you for your kind support & good wishes. Love you all, Joanie.
