Hi Folks, James here to let you know Donna came through the procedure O.K. Obviously she is very tired and sore from hospital bed backache and from where the catheter went in. The doctor gave her a general anasthetic. All being well, she is likely to be discharged tomorrow. She will be on blood thinners for 3 months and will probably take a week off work. Anyway Donna will be more specific once she's back "on the boards"
Regards,
James.

GREAT NEWS! Please give Donna our best, and be assured she's in our thoughts and prayers. I know she's going to feel a lot better after all this is over, but for now, she needs to just take it easy, and get well.
Again, thanks for the update!

Great news James! They really do need to use "Posturepedic" O.R. tables. Those things kill you after you've been on them for a few hours.

I look forward to hearing from Donna and I hope that her heart is no longer offbeat.

Take care,
Mike

James,
Thanks so much for keeping us informed. So glad things went so well. Tell Donna we are waiting for her return. But for her to rest up right now.

One last thing:

Make sure LOST records!!!! She'll put a catheter in you if it doesn't.


Take care,
Mike

Great news, James!

And Mike's right -- make sure to record LOST for her. (And if you forget, I'll be watching tonight, and can fill her in!)

Good news, and quick recovery, although those beds really do a number on ones back. I will never understand why a hospital cannot get a comfortable bed.
