Discharged

Angie was discharged from the hospital Tuesday afternoon and headed to her parents to convalesce. She was happy to lose most of the protrusions from her body but she still has the second chest tube they placed for her right lung (first surgery). She still has some air leakage from the right lung that is healing and improving slowly. She's in more pain this time, I suspect due to the cumulative effects, and the chest tube site is always painful. She has a post-op appointment early next week and, hopefully, she'll get the chest tube removed. Jen is in town this week to help take care of the boys and give Karissa and Angie's parents a break. We had a nice visit with Angie in the hospital Monday night for milkshakes, Tinkerbell, and a couple books. Now it's time to get back to work. Have a good day.

There is no better place to heal than your folk's place. The house is like a sanctuary of caring and love with the beautiful rolling lawn and quiet garden, not to mention St. Francis. You are like his bird with a broken wing and in time you will heal. Please take the opportunity to let the healing process be facilitated by the tranquility and love so prevalent in your home. love to you and your family. pat&mag

Ang,
So glad to hear that things are progressing. Probably not as quickly as you would like them to, but little by little, this cancer thing is going to be in the past! I know, you feel like slapping me right now! I do love you lots (you have NO IDEA) and I can't wait to re-connect with you when you've recovered! Super big hugs and kisses flying your way baby!
