Surgery Update

All went well! I'm actually feeling better than I have since this whole thing started! They did find an infected lymph node, which they removed, and the abscess was just filled with clear liquid. Both have been sent for cultures, which they expect the results for tomorrow. So, I'm still in the hospital, but that's okay! It's a wonderful hospital, with wonderful, caring doctors and nurses. Since I'm feeling better, it's not a horrible place to be at all. I'm just so very thankful that I was able to finally get back to this amazing surgeon and get the help I needed! I'm praying that this will take me on the road to rapid recovery and that no more infections will occur.

One good thing is that I've been able to get some reading done and my Bible study worked on. My mind seems much clearer and I'm doing much better in comprehending and my reading speed is back up some. Hallelujah! It is so hard to have a fuzzy brain and not be able to think as clearly. Infection is a horrible thing for our bodies. 

I received the most beautiful basket of flowers from my cousins in Colorado! They have just brightened my room so much and they smell so good! It's so wonderful to be so loved and cared for by my family!  

Thank you for your prayers and well wishes! They mean so much to me!
