Day 5 Phase 2 More normality each day

Susan is doing better and better each day.  She had her first real shower today; she loved it but it was tiring.  She's now resting (zzzz'n away).  She is up much more of the day than in the past.  She slept very soundly last night with no trouble going to sleep.  The colostomy is becoming routine.  When we get the products we want tomorrow from the provider, we'll be in like Flynn.  (Who's Flynn, anyway?)  The materials will be totally covered by Medicare and GEHA. We have been blessed with the Federal Employees Health Program for the rest of our lives.  There is no need for (nor wish by the recuperating one) for Nursing service; pieces are healing nicely.

Jo and Michelle, two of Susan's oldest friends from UNC days, were here from Thursday through Monday.  They fired me and Pam as PA's for Sat. & Sun.  Pam had two days off after 22 days with one day off. I actually played 18 holes of golf and enjoyed it tremendously. We have doc appts Wednesday for medical oncologist and Friday for surgeon.  The gynecological oncologist is trying to get us on the phone.  Tele tag with docs is even harder than with us regular peeps.  I think she has the pathology report from Mayo.  And the Louisiana hospital apologized that post Katrina flooding destroyed >400k records. Susan's was surely one of them.

I apologize for not posting every day; I will post when we have some news to distribute. So, if you don't see a post it means nothing dramatic is happening.  If you are a "follower" of the blog, I think you will get a notice when a post is made. Not sure if that's correct; it seems logical.

And so it goes. . .

Love, John

"In like Flynn" generally refers to Errol Flynn's success at (sexual) seductions...

Glad to hear that Susan is doing better. Think of you often...
