Kate had an eventful afternoon today, I took her on a wheelchair ride to the outside courtyard area. She enjoyed the nice, warm refreshing weather. Then, she walked back to her room holding onto the wheelchair.
Then she went down for a follow-up MRI. She was worried about the staples holding together her wound, that they might be magnetic and interfere with the MRI (which uses high-powered magnets). I told her that I was pretty sure they were not (and indeed they weren't).
Dr. Forget just came in for a visit to let us know that he still did not have the pathology report but that it would definitely be ready by tomorrow. Also, he said the MRI showed that all of the tumor had been completely removed. Praise God for this!
Finally, Kate has been complaining of hearing snap, crackle, and popping noises constantly in her right ear. Dr. Forget said it was completely normal and it is due to fluid and air pockets from the wound site.
Kate is getting ready for dinner although she has not had much of an appetite (she doesn't like the hospital food very much). Dr. Forget said she could eat whatever she wanted (he suggested steak or pizza). A nice steak dinner does sound delicious, though I doubt Kate would enjoy it. Actually, the only food she is craving are Clementines (this is an orange colored fruit similar to a tangerine). Please pray that her appetite would improve.
After dinner, Kate is going to enjoy a nice pedicure and foot spa treatment (thanks Laura). Hopefully, this will calm her so she can have a good night's sleep (me too).
Dave (and Kate)
