Local Tourist with Not In Jersey – And Another Personal Update!

It’s the final weekday of the month, which means it’s time for Local Tourist! Did you do anything fun this month where you live? Share on your blog and link up with me and Dara from Not In Jersey.

Yes, I’m a bit late in posting today – which I apologize for! It’s been a crazy week and a half. To update you all, my sister is now home from the hospital. You can read my original post here if you’re confused. She had her initial surgery last Thursday, but they realized there might be some bad cells left over (her cortisol levels weren’t dropping enough) so they went back in on Monday and looked around.

And guess what? She had another hidden tumor! So that’s out and she did a lot better after that one – and we all came home yesterday. My mom and I had been staying in a hotel down in Lexington, KY the entire time, so it’s good for all of us to finally be home! Thank you so so much to all the well-wishers and for thinking of us, especially my sister! She’s got a little while to recover before going back to work, but she’s in good spirits! Just pretty tired. I’m thinking of doing a living out of a hotel/hospital post if you’d be interested! However, for today’s Local Tourist, I’m going to direct you to a post I got up earlier this week. It was actually May 31, but Local Tourist had already gone up for May, so I’m sharing for June!

  1. Thinking of your sister and you during this difficult time. So glad they went back in. Poor baby, I am sorry it took two surgeries to get everything, though. My mom lives in Lexington. She lives very near a hospital there, St. Joseph’s, I think. We always stay at a very nice Holiday Inn Express off Export Street. Hope you are staying somewhere comfortable and that the three of you are soon home.

  2. Oh my goodness, that is so crazy that they found ANOTHER tumor. That is amazing that they could tell that something wasn’t quite right after the first surgery–good thing they went back and checked. I’m glad she’s home recovering now!

  3. I’m glad to see the update about your sister and even more happy she’s doing better and got to go home! I hope her healing process continues to go well!

  4. So glad your sis is doing well. I bet she will feel better when those levels even out. What is great is that they were able to find that hidden one before it did any more damage. Yea, I do know a bit about that kind of situation. I also know that many people feel great a few months out after surgery. Hope she can enjoy the rest of the summer.

  5. Glad your sister is doing better- and that they found the other tumor! Yay!!! Hope she has a speedy and full recovery. 🙂

  6. I didn’t do any local tourist-y things around where I live. I’m too tired after work during the week, and then on the weekends I want to hibernate with books. LOL I’ll be heading up to camp at the end of next week though.

    I’m so glad to hear your sister is recovering! And she’s lucky to have those who love her around. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. How long were you guys at the hotel for? Man, she must have been so grateful to have you there. That’s so stressful. I’m glad she’s doing better! I’m just catching up on posts and stuff – is it too late to contribute to the gift card?

  8. Prayers for a speedy recovery for your sister. I definitely know what it feels like to live in a hospital. I was my mother’s caretaker for two years. She spent many, many nights in the hospital and I was right there with her.

  9. Oh my goodness, I’m glad that hidden tumor was found! I’m sorry she had to go back into surgery though. That’s scary, but it sounds like it might have been a blessing in disguise. Hope she has a speedy recovery!

  10. I am also book reader. I never read as like book. First time I see this writer book. I don.t know how much interesting the book But I want to read this book. Just told me Where I buy this book?

  11. I’m so glad she’s doing okay now Lauren, I’ve been trying to follow your updates and looking out for news on Twitter. I can imagine the immense relief you must be feeling ♥♥♥ thinking about you all while she’s recovering darling.

    San Antonio is a great place for the tourists with the Alamo and the River Walk. ♥️
