We just got an update from Celeste that her surgery today went perfectly! So happy to hear this!  Here’s her summary:

I’m in recovery now following the surgery to place the IVC filter in the vena cava vein. They went into the vein via my vein in my neck. The anesthesia gave me a wonderful sleep and I woke up happy with Nazim right by me side. Docs said it went perfectly and they will go on to take it out in October.

We’re having fun with the wonderful nurses as they keep me a little while longer for observation.

I finally got to eat a sandwich and have my Orgain shake.

So one down and the big surgery is next on July 24th. We got this!!!!

Please don’t forget to contribute to Celeste’s cancer fund  for every little bit will…

Dear Friends,

Celeste has just left an update about the implantation of the IVC filter to her leg vein to prevent the two clots from possibly traveling to her heart or brain. She will be having the hernia surgery later this month. Please keep Celeste in your prayers and please help to increase her cancer fund to help pay for the bills that her insurance won’t cover.   http://www.gofundme.com/kvo9xs

Every bit helps!  And our love, prayers and healing thoughts are with you, Celeste.  <3 <3

I just got word that I will be having the out patient procedure tomorrow, July 7th and this is where they will surgically implant an IVC filter in my vein to prevent the two DVTs (blood clots) from possibly migrating to my heart or lungs. I will be “out” for the procedure but will return home to rest afterwards.

I saw on line that there…

Hey Kids,

Happy to report that Adam Nimoy’s Kickstarter fund met it’s goal yesterday; ($662,640 total) one day short of the deadline!  I look forward to the final product of For the Love of Spock sometime next year!  Congratulations Adam!  (And I look forward to my bonus gift for contributing  :-) )

In the meantime, I urge you to please contribute to Celeste Yarnall’s GoFundMe page to help pay the cancer bills her insurance won’t cover.  Celeste has another surgery coming up in late July (Hernia plus removal of a large cantaloupe-sized mass and insertion an IVC filter in a hip vein to protect her from the possible migration of two clots* to her heart or lungs).   This is a very trying and scary time for Celeste and her family, and I know that the love and support that went into Adam’s project would be so welcome and helping…
