Home away from home--finally!

Deborah had the nuclear med scan on Tuesday and Wednesday and then was released from the hospital to what will be her new home for awhile--the Marriott hotel. Paul and Jared helped her move from the hospital and get settled into her room Wednesday afternoon.

During the holidays the hotel has been putting out this nice assortment of cookies along with some eggnog and hot chocolate. Hopefully Deb will be able to enjoy some of these.
The pretty Christmas tree decorating the lobby.
 Deborah had a final CT scan today to make sure there are no problems from the surgery. Not a pleasant experience to say the least considering her sensitivity to the barium drink. Ugh. However, after the surgery they received a call from Dr. Kaseb, the oncologist. He said he had some good news that couldn't wait and then said the nuclear scan showed absolutely no sign of cancer anywhere in her body. He said he consulted with the neuroendocrine specialist and they both feel like no further treatment is required, just the expected follow up scans. This is extremely good news!

Paul and Jared will be leaving Houston this weekend to get back to work and school. I will be returning to stay through the week with Deb. We hope this week will be a time of recovery and gaining strength followed by a nice, safe trip back to Arizona! 


  1. Wonderful news, Happy New Year!

  2. Wowwee!! That is amazing news! Way to go, Deb! Keep up the good work and recovery. And way to recover in style. I hope that you are able to catch up on your daytime soaps.

  3. Woohoo! Happy New Year! xoxoxoxo

  4. Deb--Will volunteered to do the talk for Primary for the 9th. If you have a laptop and internet I got permission from the Bishop to tape it for you. The Bishop offered to tape it and put it on a private internet site for you to view. So if you have a laptop, internet and will still be there on the 9th. Let me know. Jeri
