Birthday, Tornado, Room with a Rooftop View

I was trying to think of a catchy title, but that is the best I could do.  First off, yesterday was Jordan's 19th Birthday.  Happy Birthday to her!!!

Yesterday was also suppose to be Kelley's first chemo day since surgery, but that go postponed due to an infection with her last remaining drain.  This drain has been a pain for a long time, but yesterday Kelley started showing signs of infection around the drain, so chemo was postponed.  Kelley received the okay from Dr. Foster to have the drained removed Monday, but we couldn't find anyone to remove it.  So instead, while they played hotbox with who was going to take it out, she developed cellulitis.  Off to the emergency room she went and low and behold, a physician assistant removed it.  How hard was that you ask?  Well, the short story --it took all of 30 seconds......  Lessoned learned here.  For the next surgery, we will have a game plan on who does what to avoid this.  Kelley is not the first person to have surgery outside of St. Louis.   Once the drain was removed, they admitted her to Barnes St. Peters.  She spent part of the night in the hallway due to the tornado warnings.  Kelley is receiving iv antibiotics and hopefully will get discharged tomorrow.  We will keep you updated on that.  

This has been frustrating to say the least, but in true Kelley fashion, she is hanging tough.  She was exhausted last night, but didn't complain once.   Shoutout to Donna Whalen for taking her to chemo and the emergency room!!!

She is resting now.  

That is all to report at the moment!  We will update you once we find out more!!!!

Have a great day!!!!!
