-Cheryl- Posted July 13, 2004 Share Posted July 13, 2004 Hello all my Dear Friends at LCSC, I am so glad to be home and I'm sick of hospital food, somebody measuring all the fluids excreted from my body, and being teathered to the wall. My sister came to visit me often in the hospital to relieve Jack. On one paticular visit, the nurse in charge caught me and my sister giving each other facials with the suction hose to rid ourselves of black heads. My sister brought me lobster one night and I asked her if the "doctor had told her something I didn't know?" She said nope, and I thoroughly enjoyed the crustation! I was so impressed at her buying me my favorite food in the whole world. She said, "Oh it wasn't nothing, just a crawdad from Lake Michigan." Ha! I bet she wished it cost the same as a crawdad instead. I asked my doctor for a prescription to bring my baby dog up to the hospital. He did, but Jack warned him that I would be wanting one for my pregnant mare next. Ha! Anyway, I am more than happy to be home with Jack and all my critters and am very sore from the surgeries. I was glad to get rid off the tubes hanging out of my abdomen. They were in there for eleven days and quite ouchie. I was told I had a large paracardial effusion, and also a pleural effusion and that I had mets to both kidneys and several lymph nodes. I am discouraged and tired- but not defeated yet. Will start taxotere and p100 I think and after that, Dr. Nemenitis has me geared up for a vaccine trial. Dr. Nemenitis is the creator of GVAX. He was the only doctor that offered me something encouraging. Otherwise, I would be deep within the bowels of this beast and very disheartened. Thank you so much for your prayers and well wishes. Much Love, Cheryl Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
