Final Laurie Update

Clovice actually spoke to Laurie today.  She is in some pain, as one would expect after a full hysterectomy. Some good news items:

  • The teaching hospital was so appalled with the treatment Laurie received at the emergency room she first went to they decided to waive ALL FEES – including post-op care. Yes, there is a God…
  • This teaching hospital is one of the finest in the world for the care she requires
  • The surgeon believes he got all the cancer
  • This type of cancer requires no further treatment past surgical removal – therefore, no chemo and no radiation

Evidently, there was a non-malignant tumor also present which they removed which was causing an infection in her uterus (the cause of her pain?). They removed the tumor and she’s on a course of antibiotics. Laurie will be monitored closely to make sure she’s cancer-free.

It’s great news Laurie has recieved such wonderful care at an affordable price. However, health care like this should be a right and not a privilege for every American.
