24 Day After Surgery
Joy is happy to report she is off all pain medication, although she does experience some discomfort from time to time. All staples have been removed and her incision is healing. She has just started using cream for scar massage and she's praying it will help with the recovery process. She ventured to step on the scales this morning and was happy to see the numbers decreasing. On June 1st she returns to see the surgeon who performed her operation. At this appointment she will be given the full results of surgery, and a treatment plan for chemo will be discussed. This will require riding in a car one hour each way to Toronto. This is a huge prayer request. Joy has not travelled in a car longer than 15 min. since the day she came home from the hospital, and this trip could be very hard on her body. Simple grooming and daily care still makes her weary, along with talking and visiting with friends. Needless to say our little social bug has more than experienced cabin fever.
Over all, Joy is doing great considering she's 24 days into recovery. It's never easy when you are the patient and you want be further along than you are now. Keep the cards, e-mails and all your prayers coming. They are working and God hears and is answering each one.
