Battlefield Update #2: Em Goes Shopping

4 Nov

Just a quick update to let you know that Em is doing even better today.  I had to work while friends and family visited her throughout the day, but was able to stop by around 8:00 this evening.  I walked into a room filled with beautiful bouquets, games, other knick knacks, and most importantly, thanks to her good friend Jaime, a size 40DD bra to accommodate Em’s sarcastic request to come out out of a breast enhancement surgery rather than a laproscopic lower anterior resection.

Yesterday she took on a puffy appearance from having her abdomen pumped with air but she must have released it somehow because she looks much better!  She also was able to make a couple laps through the hospital hallways in a fashionable manner – because she is currently hooked up to a catheter it had to come along for the stroll as well…disguised in a shopping bag.

Doesn't she make hospital attire look good?

Tomorrow Em will be able to eat solid foods; she’s truly looking forward to UMC Bistro’s menu because, let’s face it, we all know it doesn’t get any better than hospital food.  It’s looking like she may be able to head home on Saturday, but it depends on her bowels.  Who knew life could be so dependent on a fecal stream!

Thank you all for your continued support.  She is one amazing woman, and if you ask me, it’s her optimism and high spirits that keep me positive!  I think my brother Bill put it best: Lance Armstrong ain’t got nothin’ on Em.  Except for maybe one testicle.
