Merrill Posted February 24, 2005 Report Share Posted February 24, 2005 Hi, guys. I wish I had better news to report regarding our Dancing Light... but the truth of the matter is that she's still having a really tough time recovering from gall bladder surgery. Last week was a tough one. Her mom writes, " ... she has been weaker and had more dropping blood pressure, near fainting episodes, shakes and nausea. She is staying in bed and trying to be still. Every time she moves, she gets another spell. She isn't doing too well on the eating either. She doesn't have energy for anything--talking on the phone, going on-line, watching television. She feels too miserable to even get herself distracted. She does still enjoy receiving your notes and cards via snail mail...she has a keen ear for hearing when the mailman is at our driveway Emily had a PICC (a peripherally inserted central catheter) put in at the hospital a week ago and then we arranged for home health care services to set-up the IV fluids at home this week. They have instructed us on this procedure and we are struggling to get that figured out. Yesterday, I had the blood coming out of her instead of the fluid going into her!!"This is disappointing news, of course ... I don't know about you, but I really miss Emily's wit and wisdom ... her incredible compassion and capacity to empathize and lend support--and to make us laugh. Whadaya say we send back some o' that love to her ... via snail mail?! If you send a postcard or letter to Emily, c/o DINET, PO Box 55, Brooklyn, MI 49230, Michelle will forward the mail to her. (Thanks, Michelle!!!)And thanks to all of you. Keep thinkin' those good thoughts...Merrill Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
