Kelley is still at UC Davis. She is continuing to improve, as far as her recovery from her emergency colon repair surgery, and the complications with skin infection, and strength and energy level. She will still need to stay at Davis for awhile until they are sure her risk of post surgery infection can be be managed at home . The other good piece of news is that her most recent MRI shows that the lesions in her spine (cervical/thoracic) have reduced in size. Still to be seen what continued improvement will be gained in motor function. There is some troubling news, in that a couple of lesions have shown up on her most recent brain scan. More testing and monitoring will need to be done to determine the significance of that.
There is still alot that is not "known' about Kelley's condition, and causes of things that are happening to her, and prognosis for long term recovery. As more certainty is gained about these things, they will be shared on this Blog. She still is unable to recieve visitors, and does not have energy to deal with phone calls or emails. It is likely to be that way for awhile, so again, please post a comment to the previous post if you want to send your thoughts and best wishes at this time. It does help her to recieve your energy in this way, that does not take energy from her.
