My friend is very ill.

my friend Wallie is in the hospital. she had neck surgery on wed. they had to use crash cart this am. now she has a feeding tube , etc. 102 temp.

she is 74 and in fairly good health before this. has fluid in lungs as well. not a smoker so that is not a factor.

pray or think or send karma to her please. we have been friends for 45 years. i would miss her so much if she dies.


i tried to do this before. wrote a book, really it was Lengthy when i went to post it . said to short. had to go out, come back in and start over.

am reported this to monitors.

thank you

Oh Babe, I am so sorry to hear about Wallie. I hope she is not afraid and in pain, and that you have been able to see her and let her know how much you love her. I will certainly be sending hope and healing in your direction.

thank you all so much for the positive thoughts. about four this afternoon she jerked out all the tubes and knocked a nurse to the floor. wallie is about five feet and if she weighs ninty pounds, i would be surprised. i think the drugs are making her nuts. she told her daughter they were trying to kill her and that daughter was in on it. sounds like morphine to me. they put her on antivan and so far so good. i will probably go back up tomorrow. transportation is so hard for me, but will take a cab if i have to. did a little searching on line and found out the not being able to swallow is quite commom with this surgery. as well as lung problems. now they are calling in pneumonia and giving antibiotics. can only wait and see. going to bed and hope i can sleep.
