I have spent the past few days eating, drinking water, resting and walking. Doesn’t sound like much – but some days it can be exhausting. I am grateful for all the kind words and flowers that were sent. I spent Monday recording new podcasts – and the next one will be out later today. Never one to miss a moment, I wrote down everything that was an advancement in my care since my last stay in 2005. Pretty Amazing!
Carol is home as of about 2pm today. Different pain management than at the hospital and is doing ok and as expected with that. Time is spent mostly resting, a little eating (quiche for dinner) punctuated by short walks. Expecting tomorrow to be much the same.
From Chris Clinton:
its feels like slow progress but all is exactly as expected thru this morning. The epidural is still applied and active..probably removed Saturday morning, and then home. Thanks for the support and best wishes … plus the notable amount of prayers.
From Chris Clinton:
Several walks, building strength and also some visitors. The day passed and Carol awaits a Friday milestone. The epidural currently controlling pain will be removed tomorrow. We will see what the pain level is then with an expectation of getting home on Saturday….looking forward to a good nights sleep.
From the Timeless Team:
We are excited to announce that Dr. Clinton has created a podcast series called “I’ve Got Skin in the Game.” The series will be dedicated to sharing her journey with ovarian cancer. She wants her story to be shared to help others understand the disease, talk about the great advancements in cancer treatments, and speak to the fears that a diagnosis like this can bring to everyone involved.

from Chris Clinton,
Carol had a good night of sleep and the gradual recovery from surgery continues. At this point, she is self directing her care.. 😉 and as you would expect knows all the numbers from the machines. —- She just told me that she is resting better than she was yesterday….yeh!
from Chris Clinton:
After a good physical assessment, Carol leapt off the bed did some pushups, sit-ups and a lap around the hospital floor……well kinda. She was able to sit up at the edge of the bed, which she extended with an unexpected short walk. So good progress thru to this evening…thanks to everyone for positivities and prayers throughout the day. ..until tomorrow
