Surgery Successful

August 1, 2007

Peter again. Just had a nice chat with Liz. They’re back from the hospital and surgery went well. It was a long day but hospital staff was really good. Tim is doing well—because Liz is well, he says.

They did manage to install the “port” successfully, although it is the more commonly used one, not necessarily the one the doctor had wanted—more in the chest instead of in the neck. The attempt to use the neck vein was unsuccessful,  so unhappily Liz is cut in two places, but it’s not a big deal and will heal quickly.

She did well with the operation and they’ve got the day off Thursday. Another treatment on Friday—with the port! So no more poking around in her veins, which are reportedly disappearing as we spoke.

Thanks for continued prayers.

    Peter thanks for posting on LIz’s behalf. It is comforting to receive the news now instead of waiting. I am thrilled that it went well.
