Bummer, Marie.

Hope it is fixed soon.

If the medal don't work the exercises surely will. Flipping and fast head rolling seem like craziness but really do work. They'll get you straightened out soon!

For those keeping track, my co-worker returned to work for a few hours today. It was about all she could do to stagger out to her car, crawl in, and drive home. We did get a text later from her, that she had made it home.

Terry's beloved Marie is in the hospital, and needs the thoughts and prayers of every one of us. She has been diabetic for quite some time and her kidneys were failing rapidly. When she went to her nephrologist Momday he sent her to the hospital due to fluid retention and with IV medication she rapidly improved. "I lost 4 lbs. yesterday and am doing it again today!" she gleefully reported to me when I called her


Since she was already in the hospital, the decision to put in a dialysis port was made. I spoke to her yesterday and she was upbeat and looking forward to a return to more normal health. As a nurse, Marie has no illusions that dialysis is easy or simple, but knows it is the only treatment available.

She went into surgery today but as of about 5:00 pm failed to come out of the anesthesia normally and was moved to ICU. She is on a respirator. Terry is by her side.

I hope that while she has many medical challenges, those problems are merely slowing down her body's ability to rid itself of the anesthesia and that some time tonight or tomorrow she will gradually improve.

I was just visiting them in Winston-Salem last week and while it was difficullt for Marie to go anywhere we were both looking forward to her gradual improvement and doing little normal things like having nonfat lattes at Starbucks plus driving through the ritzy sections of old Salem and seeing the mansions of the gilded age. Marie's spirits were remarkably resilient as usual.

Please pause for a moment or two to pray for them both.

Paula

Such good, good people, both Terry and Marie, and I am so sorry to hear of Marie’s illness.

Terry, a big hug for you and please pass one on to Marie.

You will be in my thoughts, and wishing you both strength.

Maggie

Just got a text from Terry. Marie was successfully extubated this morning. That was all, so lets keep thinking good thoughts. I will post happily when Terry says she os back in a regular room eating breakfast.

Good morning.
The move to a regular room did not happen last night. They're going to try again this morning. The reason given was there were no available rooms. I know they must be at a premium, because when Marie was moved to ICU, there was a person not-so-patiently waiting to clean the room for the next patient to occupy it.
No word on whether the delay in moving to a real room will also delay her discharge.
