Home from hospital, but not yet home . . .

14 Aug

Hello everyone, thank you for your prayers and well wishes. I deeply appreciate it. The actual surgery and reconstruction went extremely well. But, I am very weak right now, having had chemotherapy prior to surgery makes the recovery slow.

I was released from the hospital onWed, a bit later than expected. They say because of the chemo my recovery was slowed. It was, is, etc.

I am at a hotel with my parents who are taking excellent care of me. I will go home once I am cleared to walk up stairs. Perhaps this weekend. Perhaps later. I am in some pain, but I am getting stronger each day.

It is quite difficult to write/type/text/and make phone calls as all require my fingers and it is just too painful. So please forgive my delay in returning calls, email etc. It will simply not be possible to do for a while. However, getting a call is okay. As long as it is during the day and before 7 pm. I may not answer and my voice mail may fill up. but, I will answer if I can. dialing out is just not an option for me rt now.

Thank you for your love, prayers and support. My family and I appreciate it very, very, very much.

Love to you all.

Lisa

    Hi, Lisa. I gave Molly a short vacation from Marv – or Marv a vacation from Molly, depending on how you want to look at it. She stayed Friday night and all day Saturday with me. I kept her separated from my dogs, and it all worked out fine. She slept most of the time and ate a lot.

    Sorry my update’s not as interesting as Marv’s… 🙂

    Get well soon. Love you.

      Hi Michael,
      How nice to see a message here from you. And thank you for the offer of assistance, don’t you worry, I will be asking for help. 🙂

      Right now I am pretty much in bed recuperating. In fact, this is an unapproved blog visit for me – – I snuck over to my computer to post on my blog just now while my Mom made a quick run to the pharmacy for me. So, this message to you, and my subsequent blog post (assuming I can sneak it in before my Mom returns) will be brief.

      My Mom is right to keep me away from my computer as it does hurt to type right now. But, I will be a good girl, or at least a good enough girl, and go back to bed very soon.

      I miss all of you at the office. Please send my love to all the appropriate places and don’t have too many happy hours without me, after all, these were my idea.

      Thank you for visiting my blog, it really helps me feel much less alone.

      Love,Lisa

    Bark! Bark! Woof! Woof! (translation: I miss you. Hurry up and get better. I am getting tired of Marv’s jokes and puns. He thinks he is funny. Do you know what he said at the park concert yesterday in front of almost 3000 people? Some of them thought I was a seeing eye dog. He said I came from a theatrical family because my father was a carnival barker. Isn’t that a terrible thing to say about someone who helped collect the most money ever at one of his stupid Sunday Concerts in the Park? The music was nice though, when I wasn’t asleep or barking at other dogs. Hurry up and get better, but don’t try to rush things. In my 15 years of life I have learned that slow and sure is often better than fast and hasty).

      Well now Miss Molly you had just better behave yourself. And watch our tongue, missy . . . “stupid Sunday Concerts?” Do I need to remind you that your favorite place go IS the park. You silly dog, you must develop a better sense of humor.

      I am still not walking up or down stairs so where do you think that would leave you in terms of getting fed or walked? I suppose YOU think you played a paw in raising some money eh? Well, you are cute, but don’t let it go to your head. I miss you too, but you are one lucky dog to have Marv putting you up (or putting up with you, is perhaps more like it). Please be good to your keeper!

      Lisa
