We knew we had met two people because of some obscure Internet cooking site and they forever would stay in our hearts!

I will call her tomorrow and check back in here.
I met Marge and Paul in Auburn, CA. I was down there for some training and they drove up from Sacramento to have lunch with me. Marge bought Dove with her. Dove is so cute. Marge and Paul were so nice. I wish that I had more time to spend with them.

Thanks Elf and Sierra, for keeping us updated on the progress of this lovely couple. I am glad that they are at least able to stay close together, and that Marge seems to be improving very well... and you guys are fortunate to know them in person!!

Marge, my prayers are with you both, you're such a loving person. We'll miss your posts - many hugs and you'll be in my prayers every single day!

It may or may not be a comfort, but everyone I know who has had hip replacement surgery ... welll, it gave them a new lease on life. I wish this for Dove.

I just now saw this thread - I'm so very sorry to hear about Marge!!

Take it easy, Marge - and do what the doc says. My prayers are with you and Paul. May each day find each of you feeling stronger and better!
Practice random acts of kindness.

I just talked to Marge - she is doing ok if the rehab nursing home would get her her pain meds BEFORE they are terribly late. Everyone keep your prayers going out - they need us. I will pass along her address to anyone who would like to send them a card - it will be their home address. I will pass it on to GB, MJ, Barbara L, and jkath since they seem to be on here the most and I won't be on at all the rest of the night.

She REALLY appreciates all the good thoughts and misses everyone TERRILBY as she says and would love to hear from you.
