Thankyou everybody for your support. Our prayers were heard. She got safely through surgery and recovery. She is now back in her room on the oncology ward.
On top of that, Keith called us this evening, with more good news!
When Kayla went in for surgery, She wasnt sure how much of her leg the surgeons would be able to save. She is glad that they were able to use the prefered tecnique called Van Nes Rotationplasty, which leaves a good basis for a prosthesis. That means she will have the greatest mobility possible. She still has alot of rough days ahead, but with her determination and alot of hard work she will be able to do so many things. She is tired and in some pain, but seems pleased with how things went. Tommorrow they plan on getting her up out of bed to try standing. I forget to ask if she will be useing crutches or a walker. She has to learn to balance herself properly. She has apparently already looked at her leg, some people take much longer to psych them selves up to view the results of the surgery. When family went in, she asked them if they wanted to see too! That says alot to me about how well she is going to cope.
Sorry I havent been around to visit much , but I have spent the past couple of evenings at my MotherinLaws along with, all the neices and nephews, their great aunt and my Sister in Law. Tonight was our last night together as Kaylas Brothers and sister fly home tommorrow. They will be accompanied by Great Aunt, who will stay for several days with Kaylas Dad. So even though Keith and his entourage will be coming home tommorrow, Kayla will still have some extra company for a while. And i will fly out there a while after that.
I think I have read all your marvelous comments and emails, you guys have been so generous with your caring and warmth. I dont have time to comment on your sites or answer emails just yet, but please know how extreamly touched and greatful I am. I gave Great Aunt a large manilla envelope tonight for her to give Kayla. It has this weeks posts and comments in it. I know that will mean so much to her. To know that there are people who dont even know her, that are genuinley concerned. Thanks again.
These photos were taken 21 years ago. Today is our anniversary.
Dont mind me I cry easy. This is my favourite wedding photo. Me with my Mum and Sister Carol, were caught in this shot by my aunt out side the church. Weddings are my weakness. So you can imagine at our wedding how badly I bawled. As I was saying my vows i started crying. When I cry, my sinuses kick in and then my nose starts crying too! As the minister asked everyone to bow their heads in prayer, he handed me a big huge hanky!
Happy Anniversary Keith. Twenty one kisses are waiting for you when you get back here!
