Adria : After the Surgery
Diary entry posted Sat 7:31pm 16 March 2002

Monday night now. Adria is out of surgery and is somewhat coherent. She is now connected to what I have dubbed the “Icemaster 2002”, the machine that will provide cool comfort for the weeks to come. They also have her on a Demerol pump. She is still in and out of sleep, much like I was I suppose. After the surgery, Dr. O informed me that the surgery was much like mine, except he expressed concern about her bone density, which he feels may be effected by her smoking / asthma. Tomorrow she will have a bone density test. There is good news about Kiko. She is fine. The vet made the observation that if Adria had not been holding the dog, the injury would not have been so bad. I agree with the theory, although I do not want to dwell on “what ifs” at this or any point. The resounding thought in my mind is still total disbelief. I think that will be the theme for this whole event. Disbelief that the injury is so severe, so freakish. Back to what Olivier was saying. He will be on Adria’s butt about life-style changes. Of course, I could open up an entire clinic of Doctors that think Adria needs to have some life style changes. I hope that this will do it. I hope that if anything positive comes out of this accident, it’s that she finally starts to take her health more seriously than work. Like I told Lisette earlier, she has so many things working against her, that she has to fight back. Slamming a fistful of drugs and getting on another airplane is not the answer. Thinking about this, I had an idea. Adria needs to exercise. One of the benefits will be stronger bones, that’s a fact. But she will not work out alone. There’s a health club down the road from the office. She works with other women. See where I’m going with this? It’s got to happen. This will be a priority this year, and she is going to get very tired of hearing me talk about it. Here’s another idea. Just keep going to Max’s place after rehab. Get her lungs healthy, get her bones healthy. I have no more thoughts for tonight. KJ 1/7/02 9:00 pm
