Here’s a quick update on Celeste Yarnall — She had successful surgery yesterday to remove the awful hernia she had. She s resting, but in a lot of pain, so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she recovers. Hell of a way to celebrate a birthday, but I’m sure she’s so glad to be rid of the hernia!
Her beloved husband Nazim posted this message today:
Celeste’s Surgery was a 100% successful. …..Although she is in TREMENDOUS PAIN. post op, they are continuously trying to manage it, to get it under control. She sends you all Love, Blessings & Appreciation this her Birthday Weekend. …..Love & Light Nazim
And please remember to contribute to her cancer fund as it slowly but surely reaches its $50,000 goal (currently at 28, 090) Let’s make this her happiest birthday ever donate whatever you can!
Celeste and Nazim a few days before the surgery.
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. ❤ ❤
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.
Happy to report that Adam Nimoy’s Kickstarter fund met it’s goal yesterday; ($662,640 total) one day short of the deadline! I look forward to the final product of For the Love of Spock sometime next year! Congratulations Adam! (And I look forward to my bonus gift for contributing 🙂 )
In the meantime, I urge you to please contribute to Celeste Yarnall’s GoFundMe page to help pay the cancer bills her insurance won’t cover. Celeste has another surgery coming up in late July (Hernia plus removal of a large cantaloupe-sized mass and insertion an IVC filter in a hip vein to protect her from the possible migration of two clots* to her heart or lungs). This is a very trying and scary time for Celeste and her family, and I know that the love and support that went into Adam’s project would be so welcome and helping here. Please send what you can, every bit will help. If Adam can raise over $60,000 in one day, surely we can raise the rest of Celeste’s fund ($23,665) within a week! Please share this message with all who can help. Thanks so much, Therese
Hey Kids, I’ll be out of commission for the next couple of weeks. I am having surgery this coming Wednesday (8/27) and will need some time to rest.
I’ve scheduled several posts while I’m recuperating, (including more Star Trek posters) and I hope to be back to regular posting by the end of the month. Thanks for your continued patronage and support! Feel free to leave some some comments! Love, Therese 🙂
