Tim Dustrude: Healing And In Good Humor After Surgery
Just got this report from former Update editor Ian Byington:
As most of you know, Tim found out a couple of weeks ago that he needed surgery to fix a blood flow problem he had in his head & brain…yesterday (Monday) he was in surgery and I just got the word (today, Tuesday) from his wife Shannon that things went well:
What a long journey yesterday was. What a choreographed surgery with at least 3 teams working on Tim. Everybody here has been so exceptional. We are in the very best hands and that’s our miracle.
I am so thrilled that he has his sense of humor. He was a crack up coming out of anesthesia. And almost as hysterical today. I wished I’d videotaped him. But I’ve been taking notes.
We just visited with Louise and John, Jan and Eric before they all took off for home.
Thank you and we’ll keep you up to date. Today is one more day in ICU. All day they’ve been removing lines and he even got up and walked a little ways. Progress!!!
And then another ward for the rest of the week. Lots of healing in store for us.
He’ll remain in the hospital for this week recuperating, and sends his thanks for all the good wishes from friends & family & the island. As Peggy Sue & I hear more, we’ll let you know, but in the meantime, it’s time for our friend to rest & heal.
