Medical science is so astounding and due to all the wonderful research by very clever people our generation has been blessed as we reap the rewards with their medical care to date. Keep the faith Babetoo it sounds as though your friend Wallie is a real fighter hanging in there at all odds, that has to be a good thing all my prayers to you at this time, with lot's of hugs too.

my friend is about the same. the docs. will do a tracheotomy mon. they said will better help in healing her lungs for aspirating. could not get her daughter to call me for a couple days. i called today, left the message, told her if she did not contact me soon, i would send cops to do a well check. that got a response, as u can imagine. she said i hung up on her the other day,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,i mostly certainly did not and told her so. what a piece of work she is

not really good in the kitchen. the trach. went ok and is in good working order. they are however going to put food tube in her stomach instead of down the nose. they are saying if she does well on trach. that they will move her to a pulmonary place in another town. she is still out of it. does seem more comfortable after breathing tube was removed. it seems to never end and i am so depressed about it. i really can't see a good outcome. thanks for concern.

babe

Babe, my heart goes out to you. I know this is tough but just know that you are loved and lifted up. Your friend is our friend and anything that affects and hurts you, is our burden as well.

I, and I know most others here, are with you and Willie. I am sending hugs, but I wish I could give them in person!

thank you bob this whole thing is breaking my heart. i find myself just staring off into space. at least once a day i will think, "gotta go call wallie" and then i catch myself. i hope she is not in any pain. i also hope this will end soon whatever the outcome. thank you all so much, it really does help me.
