Yesterday was Jack’s first birthday! So much to celebrate. Elizabeth is recovering amazingly well just a few days after her surgery.
She’s been off oxygen since the morning after her surgery, up walking laps around the halls and has had one of her chest tubes removed. Her oxygen saturation rate at room air is fantastic fluctuating between 98 and 100! (Normal is 95-100) She’s been moved from the observation unit to the surgical floor. They plan to remove her remaining tubes today and possibly go home on Saturday. The surgeons have all been remarking on the amazing response she has had to her targeted treatments and are very interested to see what the pathology comes back with!
2 years ago today Elizabeth was travelling home to be married to Dax, 1 year ago she had just given birth to Jack and had not yet tested positive for a genetic marker and today she has had surgery with the intent of a cure!
What a difference a year makes. Happy Birthday Jack, Happy Lobectomy Elizabeth and Happy Birthday Canada!
Knowing that Elizabeth would be in the hospital for Jack’s birthday, we celebrated early instead! Here are a few pictures from his special day!
p.s. Lizzie continues to read every single one of your messages! She is focusing on her physiotherapy and getting lots of walking in so apologizes that she is unable to respond to messages for the time being! 🙂
