We just got an update from Celeste that her surgery today went perfectly! So happy to hear this! Here’s her summary:
I’m in recovery now following the surgery to place the IVC filter in the vena cava vein. They went into the vein via my vein in my neck. The anesthesia gave me a wonderful sleep and I woke up happy with Nazim right by me side. Docs said it went perfectly and they will go on to take it out in October.
We’re having fun with the wonderful nurses as they keep me a little while longer for observation.
I finally got to eat a sandwich and have my Orgain shake.
So one down and the big surgery is next on July 24th. We got this!!!!
Please don’t forget to contribute to Celeste’s cancer fund for every little bit will help! You can contribute here.
I’m so glad that this went well, and I know when this month is over and all the surgery is done, you’ll be back on the trail to full recovery! Love and Prayers Always! -Therese
