Glad for the good news, and wishing Pat a speedy recovery from major surgery. Hope your trip was a good one.

Update from my last whiny post. Doing well. Now walk with a two legged limp instead of a three legged limp. Throughout the rehab process, progress has not been gradual, it has been in distinct steps - like another switch gets flipped. Just as I get discouraged, suddenly, I can manage something that I could not manage before. Wish I could somehow bookmark this post to come back to as a reminder when I feel discouraged.

I hope to retire in November. My realistic goal is to be nearly back to where I was pre-fall by then, and once I have only the private practice hours, to be motivated enough and have the time to devote to recovering to where I reach a place that I will be physically stronger and more capable than I was even before the accident.

Mom is undergoing complete shoulder replacement surgery on Tuesday. She and we all agree that it is a good option, even though she is 87. Sharp as a tack and otherwise in respectable health for her age. Not worried, but always concerned and good thoughts for her well being always welcomed.

She ordered me out of the house. From the 18th to the 24th. "Out!" said she. "Go to Illinois and give them my best! And be on that Honor Flight!

And I do what women tell me, 'cause it's easier that way.

A friend is coming to stay with her while I'm gone -- arrives tomorrow, in fact. (My brother bowed out of the Flight.)

Thanks for asking, Maeve. I am smarting, to be honest, and it makes me unhappy to consider that truthfully there are people who are far worse off than I feel just now. Grateful, though, for Mudcat and the members in it. And hoping that the first week at home, post-surgery, has been an encouraging one for Rapparee and spouse: Keep on keeping on there.

If Wysiwyg were able, I reckon she would be adding frequent posts to this thread. I don't really know her but I can see from previous threads that she has been through the mangle, and then some. So I am sending supportive comforting thoughts along to Wysiwyg and her extended household/family.

We got the path report and saw the surgeon today. Pat has to go back in a couple of weeks.

The report said that there was no indication of any of the cancerous cells had metastasized, and that's VERY good news.

Still, she's weak and recovering from a very major surgery. She has told me to go out of town for a doings back in Illinois next week, and I must obey. However, a good friend is coming to stay with her from the 16th to the 26th -- I'll be gone from the 18th to the 24th. If the path report or the doctor hadn't been so upbeat I wouldn't be leaving regardless of my orders.

She collapsed like a marionette with cut strings going to and from the bathroom last night, but two nurses were there to catch her. No similar problems since. Just a headache and pains associated with such surgery.

IF all goes well tonight she may come home tomorrow. Home health care, physical therapy, and occupational therapy have all been laid on already. We have a walker and a shower chair from her head injury 18 months ago and I have them all ready to go.

Good thoughts are greatly appreciated.

She was in surgery about an hour and a half and another couple hours in recovery. The surgeon thinks he got it all -- no spread -- but of course the pathology report is the final word. She'll be in overnight and possibly tomorrow night as well.

When I had been up for 14 hours she told me to leave and not come back until someone called or tomorrow morning, whichever came first.

NB, male and female: If you ever need a series of shots about the nipple have them give you at least local anesthesia. Pat, with her very very high pain threshold, rated it without any as 20 out of 10. The doctors, when they found out, said that new excretory orifices will be torn open without anesthesia. Apparently Pat wasn't the first.
