Well it has been a while since we posted on this BLOG, but we have consistently posted at the Facebook Page ‘Miracle for Becky’. Becky is now 6 weeks post op and is doing absolutely tremendous! As long as her last tube site heals up well we should be able to head home within the next week.
Becky is down to 6 units of Lantus once per day, and only takes Novalog if her sugars are elevated for more than 2-4 hours. This has only happened twice in the last week, a really great sign. She is walking 2-3 miles per day and is eating a very healthy diet. She is able to handle regular small meals consisting of 30-60 grams of carbohydrates in each sitting. Her spirits are great and her pain is controlled for the first time in over a decade. The pain management doc has put a titrate schedule in place that will gradually remove Becky from the pain medication that has controlled her life for so long. This will be a long and steady process, but one she seems to welcome with open arms.
We want to that all our supporters for the months and years of love, prayers and help. ‘Miracle for Becky’ will be morphing into a much larger effort to raise awareness and support for those stricken with the diseases that Becky has battled and BEATEN over the last 10+ years. There is an egregious and mind boggling level of incompetence and ignorance among the medical professionals in regards to pancreatic disorders. We aim to educate, inform and help those that have been led astray by their poorly informed doctors. Please continue to watch as we grow into an organization that can be a beckon of hope and help for so many patients that are struggling as Becky had for so long.
Please visit Miracle for Becky on facebook for a more detailed timeline of her progress.
