She did not.
She did not.
Sorry- he is in Rochester.
Just wondering @kobefam1103 how did your appointment go, if I may ask? I hope you received the answers you needed and calming your fears. Did you schedule surgery?
@macw how did your daughter’s surgery come out, if I may ask?
I hope both of you are feeling better than you were before your appointment and your daughter’s surgery. 🙏🏻
Our daughter is amazing and I will forever sing Mayo’s praises! Hardly any pain Nancy!!! Taking after you!
She is breathing now at night and her headaches are less. We are soooo blessed!!!
Bless Mayo and the doctors and nurses! They have a calling!!!
Nancy- your communication has been so enlightening! I promise to pay it forward the rest of my life!
@macw I am so happy to hear that everything went well. Really happy to hear hardly any pain!
Yes, I totally agree. The doctors and nurses truly have a calling. I believe their talent is GOD given. The doctors have such a wonderful bedside manner with the ability to explain everything in layman’s term and so personable. The nurses truly are angels of mercy so compassion and respectful. Parts of their job are not very glamorous and can be embarrassing for the patient, but they perform the task and putting the patient at ease while doing it. They are truly amazing.
Wishing your daughter a smooth recovery. With this type of surgery the recovery may take months to truly be back to normal, but slow and steady will get her there.
