After lunch, I departed to pick up Lacie's sister Sarah from Brooklyn so she could pay Lacie a brief visit during the afternoon (see photo).
Sunday night we watched the big game. SO HOW 'BOUT THEM GIANTS!!! Amazing game. That pass from Manning to Tyree was incredible. Lace had forecasted all along the Giants were going to win the Super Bowl. Now that her brain tail is going to start shrinking, her prognostication days may be over, but it was quite a run while it lasted. A lot of the Giants young players have shown a lot of promise so maybe this run will last a while longer.
Today has born more good news. A PA from her neurosurgeon's office dropped by this morning and all is looking good. Her surgical drain was removed and she should have her IV removed later today as well. Surgical scar is healing well. The PA said there is no reason we shouldn't expect to be discharged tomorrow by noon. We'll probably stay at least one extra night at the Variety House across the street to make sure everything continues to heal okay. So if all goes to plan, we'll be returning home to the capital district maybe Wednesday, probably Thursday.
That's about it from here. Lacie is well enough to do her own postings now, so this will be my last post. It's been fun. Keep checking daily for Lacie's updates. In closing, I'd like to thank everyone – family, friends, co-workers and our church community – for all your support. Special thanks to Lacie's mom for all her help with taking care of and supporting the kids while we were away. It has been such a relief to know they are in her loving care. Thanks be to God for all of you. John
