Two weeksHello Friends!
Home sweet homeHello friends - welcome home to me! After a long day spent with various tests and therapists I am home. Only three nights and four days in the hospital - not bad :-)
Me again!Hello friends! It's Lisa - so happy to be well enough to write this. I am doing good and recovering on schedule.
It's a new dayAll is well. Lisa is now free of most of the tubes and wires. She is ready to move out of ICU and into her own private suite (with a pool, wet bar, sauna and a view). Just waiting for space to open up. Dad. Ps. Her sisters took amazing care of her through the night. I am proud of them too.
Steady progressIts almost 6 o'clock and Lisa's breathing tube is about to be removed. All the test from a team of nurses and doctors have gone great and she's in the process of being weaned off some machines. She's writing notes and probably dreaming about how great her dad is. Haha. She will be back to blogging soon. Thanks again for all the nice words and prayers. Dad
Out of surgeryJust In. Dr called surgery went great. Valve repair is great. We can see her in icu in about 2 hours. Dad
AT THE MOUNTAINSurgery has started at 10:10 CT. All is well, They will call occasionally from surgery to give updates. Thanks for checking in. Dad
The foot of the mountainWell - surgery is scheduled for Monday, 8:30am CST. Keep sending me love folks!
My Story...I'm really liking this "having a blog" thing. I know that technically it's a Journal, but "blog" makes me feel like I'm writing important commentary that will one day be made into a "Julie & Julia" style movie.
June 15thHello! This is my first entry, and I'm not sure if I should say "Welcome to my journal" or "Thanks for letting me join!" - either way, here I am. :-)
