Update on Melissa Buhmeyer (Lizzardlee)
Janice_78 posted:
Last evening, I received an email from Melissa's husband, John. This is what he had to say:

This is John for Melissa. She was admitted to the hospital on Monday. Very long day today, but tomorrow will be longer. Melissa's pick line started leaking about 2 hours after IV nutrition (PPN) was started last night. She had a procedure this morning to temp fix until a jugular port can be put in tomorrow. Also, received results from yesterday's MRI and CAT scans: brain, lungs and heart are clear, but there are excessive mets in liver, mets in bones, and a partial obstruction in the small intestine. Plan now is to put an NG tube in tonight to see if that clears the blockage. If not, surgery is planned for tomorrow 1700L. The central port will also be placed at that time.

Please keep her in your prayers.

Janice, thank you so much for letting us know. Sounds like Melissa is dealing with some difficult times just now. I am glad that she and John let you know and that you shared the news with us.

Yes! She will definitely be in our thoughts and prayers especially over the next few days. And I'm off now to light a candle for her to remind the angels that she could use some support!

Blessings, Lizzard!

And thanks again, Janice!
Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly! Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!
