I am recovering nicely from the surgery, we had excellent care while there. The benefits of the paravertabral block include less pain post surgery- which means I have been comfortable. I was released today to go home with my family. Dr. De la Melena suggested we stay in Portland tonight so we are at my Brother Tom’s house. Spent a nice afternoon in their lovely garden, during this amazing summer preview day. The honey bees were swarming all over Lisa’s blooming rosemary bush. Joe is making a nice dinner as I write.
We will most likely travel back to Astoria tomorrow, and I will spend the next several days following the advise of the surgeon, “Rest now, or pay later.”
Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. I feel as if I have been completely surrounded by love through this whole process.
