She's Alive!!!!!!

For all who are wondering, Alisa is out of surgery and doing well. The first thing she asked me was "Am I alive." She was nervous about the surgery and so after she kept asking me tell her what her vital signs were, "Am I breathing?" "What's my heart rate?" "Am I alive?" She was riding in the back seat and she said to me, "In case you were wondering, I am still breathing."

The doctor said the surgery went well. He told her to keep her leg straight for two weeks. She quickly asked how she was supposed to walk. It will probably be 2-3 days before we found out the results of the lymph node they took out. They are also going to biopsy another mole that was taken off her back. Another doctor suggested we have it removed at the same time as the leg.

We will keep you all posted on any updates we receive from the doctors. Please stay tuned to our blog, and feel free to send anyone this direction that may be interested.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. We have felt the love from all our friends and family. thank you.

I'm sorry you have to wait for more days. I hope they fly by and Alisa continues to keep breathing.

When you said the mole on her back should be removed at the same time as her leg... did you mean the mole on her leg??? Last I heard she wasn't going to be losing a limb any time soon. Tee hee.
So glad the surgery went well, I'll be anxious to hear about that darn lymph node. Lots of love.

Oh and Josh... thanks for posting! I have checked her blog like 5 times today to see if there were any updates. You are sweet to post for her.

Hey Josh,
It's me, Alisa's roommate from the olden days. Tell Alisa that Scary Spice is praying for Posh Spice and if anyone can pull through difficult times it is her. Love you guys.

The second paragraph was confusing. Did they really say that they want to take off the mole on her back at the same time that they take off her leg? I didn't think that this all meant amputation!

Oops. I didn't read the other comments. I guess that Jenny had the same question. It's still confusing, though.

"Another doctor suggested we have it removed at the same time as the leg." I didn't know they were removing your leg, Alisa. Bad luck.

I would still like you one-legged, Alisa.
