Babe, my heart and prayers are with you now and always. I wish I was closer so I could be of more help.

they are in the process of a blood transfusion . the idea is new blood will have more oxygen. apparently the respirator is not doing the job. still the same otherwise.

I just read all the responses and I am so downhearted. What anxiety you are having about your friend and the daughter. This takes a toll on you. Seems we suffer more than the one who is being cared for.

What a good friend you are! A blessing to Wallie. I believe she knows you are there even when she doesn't acknowledge you. My prayers are for both of you and her daughter as well. May our heavenly Father give you the strength to continue to be near and comfort your friend. I only hope someone is taking care of her cats. I'll pray for them too.

Please keep on keeping us posted. You do a real good job and I am concerned like you are. Love to you and your friend and her cats.

you are very kind. her daughter lives with her so is taking care of cats. she had to put one of the six to sleep. it was coming, very old cat, and was very ill. wallie does not know. she would be very upset. she is in dire straits, my friend , and i feel she is tired of fighting it . she can't talk to us because of all the tubes down her throat. she must be exhausted after a month of this.

i sure wish she would show some improvement. daughter is angry at nurses and drs. i won't go into all that. they do seem just a bit lax. thanks for the love, it helps.

Babe - I am sending all three of you (Wallie and DD included) as much good karma and hugs that I can. This is a sad part of life.

I am keeping my fingers crossed for your friend. I'm sorry she has had to deal with this so long already.

Virtual hugs for you, DD and Wallie..

Bob

Hope all goes well with the family conference for your friend Wallie. Prayers for all involved coming your way for a good outcome. Hope you are looking after yourself too, it's so easy to forget about oneself when concerned for a friend, and it's not hard to recognise what a wonderful and caring friend you are too!

I haven't said much as I've had my hands full taking care of Cade and Carson, but the prayers have not stopped. You are all in my heart today and always.
