A quick update…

After checking in on Thursday, it was a whirlwind of tests and visits from the surgeon and numerous other medical staff.

Friday dawned bright and early when I was woken by 6 am to have a shower, Wayne arrived at 6:30 am we were in pre-op by 7:30 am.  I was wheeled into theatre at 8 am and that was the last I remember of Friday.

The weekend was rough, but sleep is a great healer and also the news that THEY GOT THE BUGGAR.  The joy of Wayne telling me on waking that the operation, although very very long, was a great success.  That the surgeon managed to scrape away all of the tumour and also to save a small part of the pancreas.  That in itself was such good news as if the small bit of the pancreas left behind works, it will mean I am not diabetic.

The last couple of days have seen a couple of bumps on the recovery road.  After being taken for a chest x-ray on Monday night, I was told yesterday that the lower half of my lung had collapsed.  So lots of deep breathing exercises are required hourly, to build it up again.  Today after a great start to the day, I had a weird turn.  More tests were done, and I’m told I have very low hemoglobin so I am having blood transfusions tonight.

I am so hoping this won’t interfere with my recovery or my ability to go home on Friday.
