I just called Amy and talked to her for about 10 minutes. She sounds WONDERFUL..her voice is very strong, she feels pretty good. The surgeon came in this morning and told her she could possibly go home TOMORROW!! She is very happy about that. She is handling the pain okay..and she should see results with her headaches and feet in a few weeks once the incision starts healing. I told her that she has lots of hugs from TDK and we love her and are thinking and praying for her. She does remember vaguely that Julie was there yesterday, she says she was pretty out of it but she does have a beautiful little package from Julie, so she knows she was there..lol
So people on the call list she is in room 397 bed A…she might be going home tomorrow so you will have to call her cell phone
Yeah!!!! Such good news for our girl. I told her she had so many worries and was so nervous and look how good the surgery turned out.
That is good news!!! But like Kilroy, I hope that they don’t discharge MC too soon. It would be different if there were someone at home to help her, but it’s worrisome to think that she would be on her own after such major surgery.
I agree with WWM, it is great she is progressing with her recovery so well but sometimes the hospital is a bit too eager to discharge the patient. Is there anyone who can be MC’s advocate with the doctor?
Of course, I am just glad she sounded so strong and all.
There are advantages adn disadvantages to early discharge. For example, the risk of serious infection is actually less at home than in the hospital, and with brain surgery this is a hugely important issue. I will just pray and trust that the doc will use his best judgement and hope that she is discharged with some aid at home.
