for Pat Adair, and the people who love her...

Our beloved Pat got some shocking news recently, and we're off and running on a mysterious medical adventure. Not an adventure we would have picked, but we're off just the same... (If you're new to the blog, start here.)

Mom gets kicked off the island

The doctors told Mom she was too healthy to be in the hospital, so they gave her the boot. So she's home, and happy to be there. We went out for a delicious breakfast today and sat outside on the patio - something she'd missed in her nine days at John Muir.

The picture is of Brooke and her Granma the day before Mom's birthday. Click for a bigger view.

Mom had her stent replaced, and the old one looked a little gunky, so that may have been the source of the infection. She's still on antibiotics, but feels really good. They gave her the week off from chemo, and we have a follow-up doctor's appointment with her oncologist on Friday. We're hoping for some good news. (Isn't that kind of a universal hope?)

Hi Pat,
You continue to look darn good in your photo ops! It is easy to see where some of Brooke's good looks come from. Happy coming home and happy birthday week. Yikes, what a month, eh? Hoping you can enjoy more outdoor meals, walks, movies and visits with friends and less new tubes, medications, and needles for a while!! Thanks, Dave, for the updates, and I'll be eagerly waiting to hear what news the oncologist has to give. Life is gratefully boring and still rather chilly here in Fort Collins but I have seen a few daffodils defiantly poking out their heads to brave the chilly winds that too often offset the brilliant sunshine. But I'm certain some balmy spring days must be in the offing. In the meantime, enjoy each one that comes your way. Love Kim
