Home sweet home

Ah at last some solid news to report. This afternoon Pat and I drove out to the UBC Hospital and picked up Cheryl for her ride home. Finally she has received a proper supply of her correct meds, so was feeling quite chipper when we got there and was able to get settled into a wheelchair for the journey to the car. The settling into the front seat was a bit of an adventure, but she did quite well and it was tally ho and away we go.

On arrival at her apartment there was a flight of about five steps upward, but she navigated these with no trouble and then we settled into her digs and chatted for about an hour or so, at which time it became apparent that the meds were wearing off and that she was getting to be in a bit of discomfort, so we provided her with the required pills and left her to have a rest. All in all she is in pretty good shape and is very happy to be back into her home territory.

On Monday she will be in contact with her GP and will attempt to coax him into making a house call to write out a prescription for more of the pain killer medicine and to remove the staples that are supposed to come out on that day. After that it will be a matter of resting and taking it easy as she regains her strength and she hopes to be up and around and enjoying her work with the Theatre Under the Stars in the near future.

She should be getting the results of the biopsy next week and this may reveal the source of the cancer cells that invaded the adrenal area and for various reasons this could be a significant revelation.
