Hey all. By now Nicole has had her surgery and is in recovery waiting to be released. Most of you who have been following her posts know by now that she had to have a very invasive surgery on her right (strong) hand and is looking at a long recovery before she can pursue her dream of transitioning from military (Marines) to Law Enforcement. 


Last night she posted that she was forced to leave her home after a big blowout with her roommate and is staying with a LEO friend until she finds a new place. 


She's going through a heap of c*@p right now and we need to keep her in our prayers and supportive during her recovery. I know she will pull through this like the champ that hshe is, but a little celestial help from us all couldn't hurt. I will be posting updates as soon as they come in .

Good to hear she is doing well, do you know if the surgery was a success?


Have ASP will travel.

Justice is the one thing you should always find, you gotta saddle up your boys you gotta draw a hard line.

When the gun smoke settles we'll sing a victory tune and we'll all meet back at the local saloon.

And we'll raise up our glasses against evil forces singing whiskey for my men beer for my horses.

I haven't heard from her yet. I was going by the timeline of her surgery schedule. I'm not assuming she is doing well and will post here as soon as she contacts me.

 Just heard from Tank. She says the doctor told her the surgery went well and is on her way home. She has some pain and swelling but is in good spirits. She's on her way to where she will be staying after the drama with her roommate. She's going to get something to eat and "shake the cobwebs" and then pass on more information. 


Stay tuned.

More news. Tank says that the doctors had to intubate her in order to put her under because she just wasn't going out with traditional anesthesia. (That Marine fighting spirit!) The doc even said she's the first patient who didn't go under with his usual methods. The surgery was successful and they didn't have to be as invasive as they had feared. The entire cyst was removed and she will be recovering very soon.


She's very happy and is grateful to all her PL friends for their support.

Nicole has asked me to let all of you know that she is reading your posts and PMs and appreciates all the kind words. She said that will be responding to them tomorrow after the effects of the meds she's on are gone and she is communicating more clearly.

Please note I don't normally like talking about other people but Tank really wanted everyone to know she had no choice but to move out on such short notice.


Her roomy was using her and taking advantage of her kindness. She gave him money, the use of her truck, cleaned the house, cut the wood, did his laundry and pretty much waited on him hand and foot even with the excruciating pain she was in. The roomy and his girl friend were not treating her like a friend and roommate but more like a nuisance; they were making her feel like c r a p  and not worthy of anything. The roomy promised to take her to and from her surgery appointment and to take care of her the 48 hours after which was requested by the Doctor; he changed his mind the last minute saying she was ruining his plans with his girl friend and didn't want to do it.


She will be much better off in another place; she tells me Sgt and his family are very kind and giving; something she needs in her life!


Tank if you're reading this...which I know you are you darn well better be resting!!  Take it easy kiddo

How about a picture?  see the initial state and later how the healing progresses.  Glad you are doing well even if restless.


Will continue prayers for you.
