Celeste has just left an update about the implantation of the IVC filter to her leg vein to prevent the two clots from possibly traveling to her heart or brain. She will be having the hernia surgery later this month. Please keep Celeste in your prayers and please help to increase her cancer fund to help pay for the bills that her insurance won’t cover. http://www.gofundme.com/kvo9xs
Every bit helps! And our love, prayers and healing thoughts are with you, Celeste. <3 <3
I just got word that I will be having the out patient procedure tomorrow, July 7th and this is where they will surgically implant an IVC filter in my vein to prevent the two DVTs (blood clots) from possibly migrating to my heart or lungs. I will be “out” for the procedure but will return home to rest afterwards.
I saw on line that there have been some law suits regarding this type of filter and have been assured what I am getting is safe.
This procedure is very important for me to have done because there will be a few days before my big repair surgery where I will not be able to take the blood thinning injections called Lovinox, which I now must have every day and this would be a risky time also for the clots to migrate. The injections keep this from happening.
I feel with this procedure having been done that I will be very well protected. I found an image of what the IVC filter should look something like, on line.
The repair surgery is a complicated one with 3 different surgeons involved and the date is now set for July 24th.
Nazim’s birthday is July 19th and mine is July 26th so hopefully we can celebrate them at the same time on his birthday as I won’t be able to do anything fun for quite some time after the surgery.
It pains me to remind you that we so need your help with regard to this fund and appreciate any and all donations more than words can express.
I thank you for all you have done to help me thus far and send you all my love and blessings for your perfect health.
