Mom’s VIP Room
I got a speaker phone call from Dad, Mom, and Chief Sister from the hospital room. Mom is talking, and talking coherently. She says that the drugs are fabulous, and she was making jokes. She really sounded good, and Chief and Dad seemed surprised at how “with it” she was. Dad filled her in on her OR antics, and she is pleased with the big picture: everything went smoothly and her prognosis is good.
The Rozzer has been given the largest room on the floor, which has a great view of downtown Cincinnati. It is the room that they give the VIPs who come in as patients. If the Reds get a home run or win tonight, she will get a fireworks display! Already she has three flower arrangements, two edible bouquets, two bunches of balloons, a couple of banners, and some other fun goodies. She might need a moving van when she checks out! All her friends from the floor are fighting over who gets to take care of her, and she is in great hands.
Dr. B-cup will be making rounds late-morning tomorrow. Dad will go home tonight and head back in the morning. I’ll probably swing by the hospital for a quick visit before lunch tomorrow on my way to chemo. This is probably the last update of the day, so assume no news is good news from this point. I’ll blog tomorrow as soon as I have both an update and a wifi connection.
We are celebrating that Mom’s cancer bits are now safely out, and she can focus on the next steps towards her long and happy future.
Thank you God, and Go Rozzinator!
