Wednesday´s Update

I was not able to make it to Viborg yesterday, but I did talk to Ole and get an update on Patti.
She was moved to the "Patient hotel" yesterday, and actually, she WALKED across the street to the hotel, on her own, so that tells you a great deal about how she is doing!

She is still very tired from the long surgery and the anesthesia, so she is spending much of her time sleeping and resting. Her body just needs time to heal from Tuesday.

She will be in the Patient Hotel from 3 to 5 days... until she feels ready to go home. They want to keep her there, for sure, until they are able to remove the drain that they had to insert during the surgery.

They also were able to meet with the doctor yesterday to talk with him about how the surgery went. He gave a great report and said that what he expected to do (remove Patti's right breast and 1 lymph node) was exactly what he ended up doing... so that was GREAT NEWS! Everything has been sent to pathology and within the next week or so, they will find out what the results are and what measures need to be taken in the future.

Continue to keep Patti and Ole in your thoughts and prayers... and pray that she does not go stir crazy while she is "stuck" recovering! :-) I think if she could get her laptop and her Bejewled Blitz games up and running, she would be much happier!
Oh and she would be REALLY happy if none of you would beat her high score while she is out of commission!!

More to come!

  4. Thanks for the update Kelli. Patti, god bedering. I had a mastectomy on my right side in December at age 42, with two lymph nodes removed. I had three lumpectomies between September and November in hopes to avoid a mastectomy. It does take a while, but it's well worth it to be rid of the cancer. I'm here if you need anyone to talk to.
