Tater was admitted today back into the columbus regional medical center again today. she is off cuminden and back on actophan (sp), on an iv drip. she will have surgery oct. 21 to remove part of her skull from her abdomen and re-attached to the rest of her skull. she has a "frozen" left shoulder that another doctor will also perform a procedure to break up the scar tissue and enable more movement in her left arm. she has been a trooper. it looks like we are coming to end of the line. she has issues with crowds and still some problems multi-tasking and sequences but she still kicks my butt on jeopardy and cash cab, and i'm no dummy. her friends have been terrific...meals, coupons, and gift cards. i asked today if she informed them to let them know about the up-coming surgery. she sain no, she didn't want them to worry. typical claire...i called her school and let them know, they were so grateful to hear. my daughters will be here for this last surgery. i'm worried, but it's the same doctor that did the 2nd brain surgery. i like him, very competent. Claire's birthday is oct 22...she will be 50. what a crappy day to spend your half-century mark! but thanks to all the prayers, love and kind thoughts we will celebrate together! she has lost maybe 26 pounds...stroke diet...(i don't recommend it)...she looks terrific! thank to all the kind folks here! i need your prayers one more time. hug your loved ones!
