"Privey" .....has asked me to update the members on her health.
Monday she will be admited to the Hospital to have a Hickman catheter installed.
She said it will be used to feed her nutrition. Normally, I would not tell a woman's
weight, but she said it was ok to do so.
My wife and I went to see her 2 weeks ago,
and at that time she was down to 98lbs, and quite frankly, we were shocked.
Today she is down to 93lbs.
It is my understanding from her, that some sort of a nutrition pump will be hooked up at bedtime,
and then removed in the morning. She may still eat as she normally does each day.
Her husband and "daughter", who is a "nurse" will have to attend a training class to learn how to hook it up.
Please keep her in your Prayers, as she despertly needs them. If we get a chance we will go and see her this weekend, as she only lives a couple of hours away.
Both her, and her husband have become very good friends of ours, and we care deeply for them. Wonderful People! I will continue to update when I find out more from her.
