In which it’s Keely update time


I suppose that I haven’t really mentioned Keely in a while and I owe the people who have been following her story a bit of an update.  For those new to the situation, you can read this ORIGINAL post about Keely’s problems.  Then THIS post will show you what she’s been up against.


For those who have been following here’s where we’re at:


Keely had her surgery on May 21st (I should say she had her TWO surgeries that day I suppose) and besides the setback because of the pulmonary embolism she’s been doing fine.


She’s still on Coumadin

We finally got that stabilized.

She’s down to one crutch.

They were moving a bit fast in Physical Therapy so her doctor slowed that down.

She has a new doctor at Duke.

His name is Dr. Brigman

Her other doctor is no longer at Duke

We loved her and we miss her

Keely is now allowed to start doing light workouts

Like recumbent bike or swimming

She can’t run … or do Stairmaster

In fact, she can never do that stuff again

But that’s ok

She’s excited to be able to do stuff on her own again

Like drive

… or fix her own breakfast

… or carry her own drinks

You know, normal stuff

She has a checkup for her femoral artery on September 7th

Then it’s only every 6 months so that’s good

She has a CT Scan and appointment on October 3rd for her hip

If that’s good she can get on with her life

Which she wants to do?

In the mean time she is writing a book

And some other projects that we are working on together

As it turns out we’re a good writing team

Because I’m impulsive and creative

And she’s organized and creative

So that’s been fun

Although she sometimes scolds me

But that’s ok.  I’ve never had someone keep me focused before

It’s kinda awesome

When she’s released from this level of care she is probably going to move

Probably to Los Angeles

She wants to be a writer

Probably for TV

So she’s looking for a writing assistant job

Or she will be when she can actually go interview first

In the meantime, she’s writing

And hopefully networking

I’m also taking her to Atlanta on Labor Day

To Dragon*Con

We’re excited

It should be an adventure

We’ll take pictures

So there you are. If you, or anyone you know, is affiliated with show business in LA and you want to help Keely please let us know.  I’m hoping to gather connections that Keely can contact out there.  I’m staying here.  You know, in North Carolina.


See ya,

    I’m glad she’s doing well! I’m guessing after all that being at a point to do light workouts must feel pretty great.
