I have been asked by a few individuals on how Stacey is doing, so here is a little update on her progress.
When she had her surgery, she was hoping that another seton was not going to be necessary. But, alas, it was and not in her most desireable location.
However, she bounced back from the surgery very nicely and probably pushed herself a little too hard even though she is doing great (a little fatigued at times).
She bounced back so well that she found herself "at home" in the kitchen helping with the VBS meal. She is a real tropper.
Her next appointment is on the 14th. It can not be moved. They have squeazed her in to make this happen with the GI and the surgeon. The small problem came into play because we have a staff retreat on that day.
Within 5 minutes though of Stacey calling and letting me know that the appointment must be made ... a few phone calls, office visit at church was made and we had people watching / picking up kids and someone to go to the hospital with Stacey.
The church people are being sooooooo helpful as we navigate these choppy waters. It is so fantastic to have a supporting congregation around us.
Thus, we will know a lot more on the 14th. We may find out what the next steps will be, we may get her on a treatment plan and we may begin the aggressive medication (humira). Whatever the steps are, I know these things (yuck, that sounded like Glen Beck):
1. The hospial system she is in his AWESOME
2. We have a church who is in our corner
3. We have GREAT insurance where we can rest with ease
Thanks for all the concerns, the prayers and the financial gifts to the church as they pass them out to us for medical bills from the Indiana insurance fiasco.
