Carol is resting comfortably . . . really comfortably . . . on the Eastern Shore tonight. This afternoon she had a procedure called a celiac plexus block - a deadening of the nerves in the area of her worst pain. As far as she can tell, it was a great success. She'll know for sure in two weeks when the local anesthesia has worn off and the true impact of the block will be realized. But, so far so good!! And if it truly works she will be able to give up the morphine and all its nasty side effects. What a blessing that would be!
Thanks to each and every one of you for your many, many prayers. Carol felt prayed for, loved and finally pain-free. Actually . . . she was so happy in the recovery room she was inviting the nurse to come to their house in Georgetown for drinks when she and her husband come to town next. AND she insisted that Frank write down their address and telephone number!!
Carol promised to write tomorrow. But for now, know that your prayers were heard!!
