Hey y’all…I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to be with you today!!
I know a lot of you have been wondering what’s been going on with us over here at 2 Bees. We truly appreciate your love, concern and well wishes. If you’re a regular reader you know that I broke my ankle back in June followed by subsequent surgery in August. You can read that post here.
Fast forward to October 1 when my hard cast was removed (YAY) and I was transitioned into a non-weight bearing boot.
October 4 was Jennifer’s fabulous and beautiful wedding. It was wonderful being with our family and friends. It truly was a magical day and we had the time of our lives. We will be sharing more details beginning tomorrow.
Now, I will try not to be dramatic or emotional and just give you the facts. I had a very unexpected post-surgical complication. October 7 I was in a lot of pain and was directed to go to the emergency room. After numerous tests it was discovered that I have blood clots in both of my lungs and a partially collapsed right lung. In medical speak I have pulmonary embolism from Deep Vein Thrombosis. The doctors informed me that usually patients would present with this condition within the first two weeks after surgery…but it can even happen three months after surgery.
I certainly consider myself fortunate that I finally realized I wasn’t going to get over the pain I was experiencing. I’m also blessed to have Jennifer as my daughter and champion. John was in NYC on a business trip so Jennifer stepped in and got things handled. She got me to the emergency room, filled out my paperwork and was by my side every step of the way. I am one proud mom 🙂 My Honey Bee flew back to Atlanta as soon as he got word of what was going on at home…I was so happy when he walked into my hospital room. I am fortunate beyond words, in more way than one 🙂
The great news is…I will recover – I get better and stronger each day. On Wednesday I’m hoping to have a real Forrest Gump moment at the podiatrist and be finished with my crutches and boot.
On Thursday I will have my first recheck with the lung specialist and I am positive my treatment is working.
Please tune in tomorrow…Jennifer and I are back on track with all new blogs posts. We have lots of goodies to share from her wedding as well as more Fall goodness and the Holiday Season!
Thanks for caring! See you tomorrow!!!
