Prayers and positive thoughts have continued to heal Claire through her post operative surgery days.
Today we had an xray to see if the bladder was healing properly so that on the 27th, as scheduled, she can have the cath removed and be able to get around a little bit easier. They said that everything looked very good for the 27th. She has been out for a couple of short walks (thanks goodness for the unseasonal New England weather) and both appetite and spirits are picking up as well. It will be a quiet but happy time for us this Christmas and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year..
My beautiful wife, Claire, is scheduled to undergo major surgery and we are positive that this will remove the cancer that has been detected recently. We know that both thinking positively about this procedure and that the many prayers being offered up on her bahalf will make all the difference.
Its hard to believe that three weeks have passed since my wife's surgery and she continues to do very well in her recovery. Tuesday was a milestone day for us. She had her three week follow up with the Dr. and the cath was removed and he checked her over to see how she was doing. The best news of all was the fact that the tumor was a T1 and that it had definitely been contained within the eureter and lower portion of the kidney. The Dr had ordered a second go around for the lab work as he wanted to insure that it was contained and had it done a different way to satisfy him. She will return in three month intervals for the next two years to check for any reoccurance in the bladder as this would be the most likely place if it were to happen. After the two years, the checkups are spread out a little through the 5th year.
Thank you all for your support and prayers during this very difficult time in our life as it is so much appreciated.
