In the midst of struggle and hardship, there are still good stories.

This just in from Emily's mom (subject line: new direction)

Just a quick update to tell you that the doctor has made two changes

So that's the scoop; since Emily's the silent type these days, I'll thank you all for your healing wishes on her behalf.

When Emily is on her feet she is going to need to send her Mom to a day spa!! Poor thing, she is going through a lot herself but she is so thoughtful to take the time to send us an update. It is really good to hear that Em is making some improvement. You KNOW you are feeling better when you care enough to get your hair washed (LOL)....been there!!

Hopefully before the week is out she will be in receipt of some of the cards and letters which will lift her spirits as well.

Thanks Merrill!

I am so glad that our Dancing Light is feeling a bit better. I hope all the muches that she continues to progress. Emily's mom is doing a great job with the IV. I was in the hospital for 15 days for intensive IV hydration due to GI problems. Oh, Emily==I hope that both you and I get relief from the rebounds of gall bladder surgery! Give me a call, Emily, when you have some strength! Your pal, Lois

It's so nice to have good news about our dancing Emily--and how timely! The present I ordered for her finally came in today's mail, so I can pop everything in the mail to her tomorrow. :)

I'm glad that Emily is doing better! I don't know her well, but I remember how sweet she is. I sent her a card in hopes it'll cheer her up a little.... Anyway, I really hope that Emily continues to recover, and I know that she is really missed.
