Day 17 - October 16, 2008

Not a lot to update, but we've got the eating thing figured out! She can eat again!! And I think she enjoyed her lunch today. She's feeling pretty feisty today, which is really great to see.

I believe the plan is to do an angiogram this afternoon to get an idea where the blood vessels in her right leg are located. They'll use this to attach muscle to her existing vessels in order to fill the muscle void in her right leg. Still don't know when plastics are planning to do that, though. Still sounds like no surgery until the weekend.

Mom's spirits are really good. We've switched her pain meds, which seems to be making her a lot more clear-headed. So, still feels like we're moving forward!

Oh, and for those of you who are curious, hubby signed an offer letter for a job today. The plan is to start one day next week. PRAISE THE LORD!

More later!

Thank God for the job. Glad Patty is finally getting to eat some and is more herself. Will see you this weekend. Love Reta

Yeah! I'm glad the eating mix-up got fixed and she can eat again. Another day forward. We will continue to pray.
Congrats to your hubby!

Sounds like great news on both fronts. I'm glad she is enjoying her meals...finally. She'll be up and around in no time.

Congratulations to "hubby" :)
Praise the Lord for food and the ability to eat and enjoy it. I'm so glad to hear that Patty is feeling a little "fiestier"! Will be praying about the angio and wisdom for the plastic surgeons, specifically (along w/ no infection still).
