Not really sure how many days post-op i am, but things continue to improve.
Bob was sticky and entangled badly about my brain stem. The docs simply weren't going to walk away, so it was a very long day and a half for my family. As expected, Bob was benign, so with about 95% removal rate, we move to wait and watch for the future.
I had severe bedsores and surgically-related wounds. However, I have received top care of professionals all across the hospital and med schools. I have healed nicely thus far. I hope to have my ventric valve removed today. Would be good to move out of ICU finally.
i have had a life-altering experience thus far, and it is sure to continue as I look at rehab therapy and continued healing.
I am still limited to thick liquids and purees. Staying hydrated is a challenge without an IV. Speech therapy is certainly in my future.
Today and tomorrow should bring other news....
