January 26, 2006 @ 8:30pm - Pearl did very well today! She had a little more pain in her stomach than she did yesterday but it could be attributed to the gas we often feel after bypass. She is walking around to keep that circulation going and that will help with the gas. She is settled into her permanent room to continue with her recovery. Hopefully, she makes her way home sooner than later but if she must remain for the latest, that could be about 5 days which would send her home on Tuesday. Let's keep her in our prayers that she gets to go home before that! As always, her hubby is by her side tonight once again so I will come back with an update tomorrow.
January 25, 2006 @ 8:00pm - Pearl has had her first 1/2 day on the losing side! Yayyyy! The first full day after surgery is spent in the ICU recovery room but this is a normal procedure. She is doing absolutely fine and has so much support including myself. Her husband has been by her side all day and tonight so that alone is a spirit lifter as well. She just might surprise me and have me out and about with her sooner than I thought with spirits as high as hers! Well, she needs to rest for the night as well as myself so I will update you on her progress tomorrow. I think by then, she will be strong enough to have a word for you all who are pulling for her and keeping her in your prayers!
January 25, 2006 @ 11:00am - Pearl is out of surgery in the ICU recovery room. She spoke a little bit but she is pretty much "out of it" with the anesthesia. Praise God that everything has gone well with her and I will be updating again soon when she has rested. God has brought her through something major! She is blessed.
January 25, 2006 @ 8:00am - Pearl is in the surgery room. Everything is going fine...the surgeon nor his team has come out to report anything going wrong so she is in there being a soldier. They said it will be about 2 - 3 hours so I will report back again about Pearl after speaking with her. Right now, she is pretty much "out of it" with the anesthesia.
January 25, 2006 @ 6:55am - Pearl is entering Darnall Army Hospital in very good spirits as we speak. She is a strong woman and a wise woman. God is with her always and rose with her today to guide her mind and she has no fear. Pretty soon, I will be posting her moving to the recovery room! Thank goodness for wireless internet access. :O) I shall return to keep all her OH friends posted on her progress and leave a message from her to everyone. You can leave comments on her page or at the blog on my page (Tee Tee) that I have for her and I will be sure she gets them all. Keep her your prayers!
