Aortic dissection & aortic aneurysm information support group

Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection

Cheryl thanks everyone for their support and good wishes.  She has asked that I send a brief update as she hasn't been able to work on a computer.  On 7/15 she was released from the hospital, 1 week after surgery.  7/20 she returned to manage 2 blood clots she has in a painful left calf (with Heparin) and Coumadin (scheduled for several months), and continue to monitor her kidneys, an elevated and puzzling white cell count, and 1 lung that is slightly shrunken due to immobility, etc.  She had a CT or CAT scan done 7/24 to check on things.  She looks amazing though, after just 2 weeks and very little sleep ( almost as if this bus never hit her), and continues to amaze EVERYONE with her perserverence, strength, and kind attitude.

Her sister, Carmen

I am so glad Cheryl is doing good. It does not surprise me because she is  a survivor. I have been thinking about her. Please let her know we miss her very much.
