Just another day.....

What a day...!

It started with dropping Karena off at the hospital at 7.30am....after some comings and goings, she eventually went down to theatre at 11:30am....and returned to the ward at 4:30pm.

Went to see her this evening and overall she seems really well (hooray) ;-) She even asked for a cappuccino which is a sure sign that she's on the mend (they wouldn't let her have one tho !)

We have to meet the surgeon tomorrow morning at 8am ish to find out exactly when they did (or didn't) do - but the nurse told us that they did complete the hysterectomy and as I understand it they removed the omental lump too (nurse didn't know more and Karena was asleep at the time !).....anyway, we will find out the details tomorrow.

Karena has lots of tubes coming out and going in at the moment but that should change in the next couple of days. She's still very strong in heart and the scripture which she memorised before going into theatre was Isaiah 41:13 "For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you".

She says that she feels better than she thought she would, and she was really sleepy when I left.

For the many who have prayed for us in these tough times, we are so grateful to you.

The road is still a long one....but I'm really glad the day is over at last......
