Our sweet friend has been home almost 48 hours and settled in nicely. Although traveling home in her "PJ's" felt somewhat awkward and amazing at the same time, the trip was uneventful. When they turned into the driveway a melody of balloons and signs were waiting their arrival. Her men had no problem getting her up the stairs and settled into their comfy home, where she enjoyed her long awaited lunch of Brunswick Stew.
Later that evening we were able to Skype for a few minutes. It was so good to connect with her on a visual level, she looks great! As I tried not to make her laugh, she did smile and that was uplifting.Her guys were getting supper ready in the background.
Yesterday she had climbed the stairs, (lots of them) had a shower and kept her pain under control. Every now and then it grabs her to let her know she has to still lay low, but that's a good thing.She asked to please tell all of you how much she appreciated the cards, packages, flowers and prayers you have sent. Please be patient with her in getting out a responses until her strength returns. I asked her for specific prayer requests.
*removal of staples on Friday at 2:00
*patience (I added this one for her)
*continued pain control
*her family as they continue on this journey with her
With regard to further treatment, Joy is to return to the cancer center on June 1st. At that point they will discuss the options. She will need to undergo chemotherapy and mostly likely this will be the next step.Please continue to send you prayers and well wishes to our Joy. I did hear this morning the "hot flashes" have begun. (another prayer request)
Lifting my friend and sister Joy "Faith",
