Got Another Miracle!

Tuesday afternoon at 5:00, Crochety went in for the much awaited "tummy tuck." Fortunately, it lasted half the time they thought would be needed. Surgeon took approx. 35lbs. of tissue and fat away and cleaned out the infectious areas. He looks great for a guy who has gone through what he has. He is in ICU just as a precaution and his hand is on the pain med button. Now to the healing process. Please keep up the prayers and good thoughts.

FishHawk said...

Well, after his Giants beat my Cowboys, I am rather reluctant, but if you insist, I will, my dear Mrs. C. Just tell him that I am only wishing him well because of you and the Spawn, however.

Adullamite said...

Progress at last Mrs C, good news.
Hopefully this is a big step forward and he will soon be back on the couch in time for you to go and shovel snow!

Kathy said...

We will. Thanks for the update and good wishes and prayers on the way!

Deb said...

This is a maggot-free zone, then! That's really good news. That means his blood thickened up and he didn't have to go the maggot route. You guys must be very pleased about this. Sounds like a big step. Hang in there.

Yeah. We'll have to leave the football out of it.

I'm so glad to hear this good news. Tell him to keep his spirits up and to try not to get a cramp in that pain medication finger.

Lady Sarcasm said...

Woot woot! Excellent. What will you do with such a studly fellow now Mrs. C? hehe You both take care, and get well. :)

Jenn Thorson said...

Thanks so much for the update, Mrs. C. I've definitely been thinking of him.

Moreover, I am sort of relieved to hear that at least for the moment, maggots have not been roped in to this particular treatment. :)

This is wonderful news for Mr. C. With those 35 lbs gone I imagine he can see his penis again - so important for a man.

Rest up and get better, and remember to be thankful that your groin remains 100% maggot-free.

Oh, Mrs.C!!! Thanks so much for telling us!! What a relief. I SO hope that this is just the beginning of nothing but healing.

{{{hugs}}} to both of you.

Give Joe my love. Tell him I will ask Bruce to dedicate a song to him on Wednesday. lol How about "A Night With the Jersey Devil"? Too obscure? Alright. Let's just go with "Born To Run". This one's for you Joe!!

ettarose said...

Don't think I have forgotten you old man. Life just gets in the way. I am so very glad things went well. I hope to hear from you personally next time. Mrs. C I don't have to tell not to take that personally. Love and good wishes to you both.

Now you can save the maggots to use for fish bait.

Hope the healing is speedy.
