Ever since the doctors installed the central catheter in Melissa's chest, we've been trying to get them to take out the Quentin catheter in her femoral vein. They were afraid of bleeding and so wanted to leave it in until they felt a little safer about it. Yesterday, they finally took it out.
Melissa should be able to get up & walk around a little more easily now. She has been moving about & sitting in her chair for a few days, but it wasn't the easiest or most comfortable thing to do. Now, they just need to remover her "good friend Foley," as she likes to call her Foley catheter, and she'll be dancing.
She's been getting a lot of cards and gifts from friends and family & loves when I stop in before work with the pile of mail.
I should get back to work. Just wanted to update.
