PaulaS - update for friends

Just back from visiting Paula. She and I have been very touched by all your comments on the earlier thread. Thank you so, so much for those and for all the prayers, thoughts, good wishes and vibes you've sent our way. They've had an impact.

In brief

- Wound healing very well.

- No test results showing any infection

- She's enjoying life more, walking round the ward etc

But

- Stomach area still distended

- Oedema (swelling from fluid) in legs. Wearing compression stockings

- Coughing painfully (cough now assumed not to be from infection)

- Very tired

- Treatment for CLL still suspended. To be reviewed in 10 days

- Maybe coming home by weekend

Many thanks again.

Peter

Trundling along yesterday as I drove through the murk and gloom in the early morning I suddenly saw a squirel hop out the hedge and dance around, before hoping off again.

Took that as a good sign.

Many thanks Peter for the good news and really...

All positive news which is the real bonus. Having recently had a hernia op I empathise over the wound and oedema. Also the coughing doesn't help.

Keep on with the little steps and you move forward just as effectivly
