Need "good vibes, etc." for Constance!

I talked to Kim, Connie's husband, yesterday. She's seriously ill and is in the hospital. What was initially thought to be an inner ear problem has turned into something else much more serious.

As of yesterday, she's trying to overcome pneumonia and has a very low hemoglobin level, which the doctor's are trying to correct and determine what's causing it. They've conducted other tests as well. She's sedated and Kim says she's responding and fighting.

Suffice it to say, please put/keep Constance in your thoughts and prayers. I'll keep you posted as Kim updates me.

Remember too when you are saying your prayers or sending up good thoughts that Constance LOATHES being in the hospital and it makes her feel quite unsettled so pray for peace and calm as well.

Healing energy coming your way Constance.

Just got off the phone with Kim. Connie's making some positive progress. Slow, but positive. She's still sedated, but things are moving slowly forward. Please hold her close in your hearts.

It is now a few days since this thread started, so I am hoping that Connie has progressed further. Thinking of you Connie. Get better soon.

Thanks for the updates Katie.

I just got home from the hospital today. Thank you all for your prayers. I was very close to death, with critically low hemoglobin as well as the pneumonia. It's been a long haul, and I'm weak, and bruised all over from being stuck, poked and prodded, not to mentioned being intubated, but I'm here.
