Friends,Hip Hip Hurrah!!! Sue is going to be discharged tomorrow. She is walking, talking and eating. I cannot tell you how happy we all are....Sorry, did not post a comment for a long time but here is the best one of all. Sue is officially in recovery mode. Yes, this is going to be a long recovery, but I am sure Sue will make the best of it.Sue is struggling with -post-op headaches (may last for several weeks)-fatigue from the smallest amount of exertion-left eye blinking problem-left side facial slackness-and plain boredomSo, this what what we hope will happen in the next few weeks-headaches will slowly fade away-efforts to strengthen herself, will allow her to conquer her fatigue-the doc's will implant a platinum weight inside her eyelid so that it will help her blink-as time goes by her facial nerves will start working again. To start off a physiotherapist will stimulate her face with electrical shocks followed by facial exercises-boredom...hmmmm...blogging? knitting?I still cannot believe that it has been exactly two weeks since we found out about Fred(the tumor)and her marathon operation last Tuesday to get rid of him. This week seemed to last a life time. I am so glad the bloody week is over.Thank you for all the outpouring of love, good wishes, good vibrations and the lovely flowers and e-song. Susan loved the e-song and plays for all the people who come to visit her.Sue plans to do a Sinead; requires a surgeon to do it because of the sutures. Lest see what happens!!
Love you all
Sue, currently uses a cane to walk. But her brain does not want her to walk for too long.She is exhausted after walking for 5 minutes.
