Today, I am at Day 10 post surgery.
First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you who rooted me on pre-surgery and has sent me well wishes in many different forms post surgery. You all mean the world to me, and each and every one of your messages means the world to me. I actually keep screenshots of all of them. I know. I’m a nerd.
Jenny looked up today and said …
There always has to be a bad day after these surgeries.
She wasn’t talking about today. She was talking about Sunday — Day 4.
It’s always something.
We’ll fast-forward to the end. This is how Jenny is resting this evening.
Jenny hurts pretty much everywhere.
She had surgery on one side of her back, so it hurts there. And on the other side of her back, she’s having pain where they “didn’t operate.” The nurses think it has something to do with the drains. The doctors say it might be muscle spasms. (It’s not muscle spasms.)
Today has been about pain management for Jenny.
It really started where I left off with the surgery day timeline from yesterday evening at about 9:30 p.m.
We’re back at MD Anderson for the beginning of the end of her surgeries. There will be another surgery or two, but this is the last big one.
The last big one.
