I spoke to Julie this afternoon for a good 45 minutes! It's SO good to hear her voice and hear that laugh of hers (even though she's trying hard NOT to laugh because it hurts.). She's doing well. Came back from a visit to the surgeon's today where she had 50 staples removed from her abdomen and 25 from her butt. And there are still more to be removed next week. So, you can understand why she's finding it very hard to sit in a chair for any longer than 5 minutes even with a throne of pillows. She's tried a donut pillow as well, but all that does is pull on everything as you can imagine.

She had asked a couple of times about the size of Marty but because of the problems she had with all the prep she had to take (she kept throwing it up), it was really hard to tell. The surgeon held it in his hand, the surgeon assistant told her today, but it was all covered in the gunk that the prep was supposed to get rid of, so she couldn't really tell the exact size. Julie says she will keep asking, but you know, that's a fact you need to know!

Her visit to the doc's today was a positive one, despite all the staple and stitch pulling. She's healing very nicely in spite of how it seems, and they now have a really good idea of what kind of cancer they're dealing with and can tailor her treatment to deal more efficiently with it.

I told her that everyone had sent their love and best wishes and she wanted me to tell you that she loves you all and appreciates all the good thoughts and healing vibes you're sending her way. She so wants to get back online and do all the things she loves to do, but it's going to be a little while still.

So keep her in your thoughts, and before long she'll be back among us. I'll keep you posted until then!
