Another Invasive Biopsy
The sample was frozen and sliced and looked at under a microscope. There was no cancer found. The entire sample will be sectioned and analysed in the next five days. We were allowed to see Katie after she woke up in the intensive care section of the hospital. Katie was burning up with fever and had ice packs on her head. She was in excruciating pain. What should have been a simple and almost painless procedure of taking a small sample with the camera probe turned into a disaster. Removing the thymus was not called for or discussed in the procedure. This was a major surgery and it turned into a disaster. Michele remained by her side in intensive care. Katie was very disappointed and broken-hearted that CPS would not allow Edward (dad) to stay in the room.
