Two Down Two to Go

We went back to the reconstruction surgeon on Friday and fortunately Meredith was able to have the other front drain removed.  Her back two drains remain and based on the amount of fluid still accumulating, I would guess those won’t come out till late next week.  Apparently my thoughts on recording audio for the removal of this drain was leaked to Meredith.  And by leaked I am pretty sure that means she just read my last post.  Needless to say, there are no sound bites from Friday’s visit.

Meredith had her first outing this weekend as she tagged along when I had to run out to Perimeter Mall.  She looked very cute in her scarf and had a little jacket/wrap to hide the two remaining drains.  When you think about it, she has been either in a hospital room or our home for the past week and a half.  So it was nice for her to get out of the house, even if it was only for an hour.

This week holds continued recovery, follow up visits to the reconstruction surgeon, and a Herceptin treatment.  We will keep you posted and thank you again to everyone for the continued support.
