Our young family battling stage IV breast cancer one day at a time

Home Coming

Lindy is being very strong after this life-changing surgery–imagine that! 

Yesterday went better than expected and her pain is managed appropriately.  She’s got the gleem back in her eyes again and she’s already been walking down the halls.  In fact, we got the orders that she’ll be discharged to my care later today.  Apparently, our insurance company only cover two nights at the hospital for all she’s been through.   So, I’ll be bringing my sweetie home later today and will do my best to get her well again.  She’s a pretty patient, so I welcome the challenge.

Emotionally, we’re still numb.  Personally, I think this is the prayers and positive thoughts people are sending our way.  Numb is better than sad…we’ll take numb.  It seems weird (I’m sure psychologists would have a hay day with this),     but please pray for numb–it’s getting us through this. 

Love you all,  Dusty & Lindy

    Dusty you guys are so awesome and strong! I will pray for numbness. Please let me know if there is anything we can do for you.

    I love your candid sense of humor. I’m sure you’ll be a great “nurse”? If in doubt call Jill .. she does know what she’s doing.

    I’m praising God for the healing so far.

    Praise God that everything went so well! We’ll be praying as Lindy comes home. We know you’ll take great care of her, Dusty! You guys are amazing. Praise God for the strength (and numbness) He’s given you to get through this difficult time!

    That is great that she is coming home. Sometimes healing takes place better in your own comfortable surroundings anyway…although I am sure that the nurses and staff have been very caring. Make sure you ask if there is anything you need. Remember…Meeuwsen’s live just around the corner from you and we would be happy to help out with anything…..just ask. Hugs to Lindy. Our prayers continue for you both.

    Yes, I think numbness is a gift God gives us to get us through times that we never, ever thought we could make it through- praying hard that God continues to give you the strength and numbness that you need!

    We’ll pray for a smooth trip home and for good pain management. It’s hard to believe that she’s going home already! Praying for numbness to continue– for both the physical and mental numbness.
