Sandi Update #2

Don't get me wrong, I'll never wish anyone ill! Certainly not a hospital stay! But Sandi ending up in the hospital has me calling her every day and I feel so good about the way our friendship is growing through this that I've labeled it a blessing! And I've missed our internet chatter so I'm doubly glad for the reason to call and talk.

I just got off the phone with her. Her doctor wants to keep her till the end of the week. It seems that when she walked in to the ER under her own power she was in critical condition from that infection and they didn't know how she was able to stand, much less walk. So now that the infection is healing they want to hold onto her till her white blood count, and I presume energy, returns to a more normal state. When she told me what her doctor had said I told her she had a new nickname, "Tankette!" She laughed!

The book I sent her, "The Whole Truth" by Baldacci, will hopefully keep her a bit busy, but if she reads as fast as I do when I'm bored and in bed the whole day probably not. Feel free to leave messages and comments if you know her or even think you might want to. I'll deliver them. Or you can leave one on her blog, Holding Patterns. There's a link to it on my left sidebar. She said to tell you all how much she appreciates the prayers and messages of care she's received so far.

Hope everyone had a good holy week! Peace! Hope! & Joy!

Thanks so much Lee, for the updates on Sandi. Just so glad to hear she is on the mend and hope she continues along in that vein now too. Tell Sandi I said to hurry it up though as I'm getting impatient, waiting for her next post and I'm betting it will be a jim-dandy one too!
Peace!

I'm glad to hear Sandi's coming along so well.

It's good she has such a faithful friend in you, Lee.

oops.

Lee said...

Jeni, you're welcome! I'll pass your message along tonight when I call.

Peace!

Lee said...

San, I'm glad too! And I'd do the same if you were hospitalized, especially if Bennie emailed me the hospital room phone number. :-)

Hugs!

Lee said...

You're welcome, Introspection! Hope you find time to visit Sandi's blog when she gets back home and can post again.

Peace!

Thanks for the wonderful update, Lee. I left a comment on Sandi's blog for her son, Wallace.

If you are speaking to her please give her my warmest wishes.

Hi Lee. My name is Bonnie. I'm a friend of Debbie's. She asked me to keep in touch with her blog friends this week, while she is away visiting a dear blog buddy.

Sandi is one of Debbie's friends also. I will give her the update. Thank you.

There was nothing good or holy about my week. It's boiling hot in Calcutta, and I haven't got air conditioning at home. All day in office I'm fine, but at night...that's a whole different story!

Lee said...

I'm sorry to hear that double-dolphin. I remember the days of no airconditioning from my youth but we were in South Texas which might be considered hot but not as hot as Calcutta. I hope you have measures in place to help with the heat when at home and at night.

Peace!
