The staples have been removed. It was not as painful as I had made it out to be. Thank you for praying for courage. The only uncomfortable part was the doctor pulling some hair with the staples. I am thankful that I actually have HAIR to pull. Dave was right at my side holding my hand during the procedure. I think he turned his head - That's OK. He has been through enough lately. He is such a wonderful spouse. I couldn't have asked for a better one!
I was able to visit the older boys at school today after the doctors visit. I wanted to share with them that God has answered their prayers in giving me courage. They wanted to see that the staples are OUT! I think it was a relief to them and to me as well knowing they are gone.
As for the detailed pathology report from Barnes Hospital . . . . . No News. That is totally fine for us. We need some rest time. We desire no more news to process at this time.
I am able to drive during the day starting this weekend. I am taking anti convulsion meds, tylenol & no steroids.
My cheif complaint is that my left wrist hurts. It wakes me up at night. It is due to the "ART" cath they put in at the hospital. I am thankful that it is my wrist that wakes me up not my head. My humorous comment on the art cath is "I know why they now call it a art cath. It sure is a piece of "art"work due to the bruising."
thanks again for praying - today was a good day! - kate
