Discharged to Variety House

The night of fluids helped, but she is still getting low pressure headaches. It takes 30-60 minutes for it to start and they take a while to get bad. The PA's said that all they would do if she stayed was give her more fluids. She's perfectly capable of doing that outside of the hospital so they discharged her today. We have three days until our flight. I think we have plenty of time to regenerate the rest of her spinal fluid.

Hi Heather I hope you liked the other poems because here's another-

The rose is a rose,
And always was a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
That the pear is,and so's
The plum,I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You,of course,are a rose-
But were always a rose.

And you are! And definitly a trooper!
And a puppy that goes, says OTIS!

Dear Heather,

Lay low at Variety House. I hope the headaches get better or your trip home will be a bear. Take it easy and all the best in the next couple of days.

Hello Heather

I'm sorry I am slow to send you a greeting. Anna got really sick last Sunday, and she's been in the hospital. It was a combination of a "bug," dehydration, pain, and who knows what else. The Buffalo Hospital did two Ketamine infusions back to back, and they really are helping her. So we continue to be encouraged about the infusions for her. Trying to get them set up locally now for her. So keep it in the back of your mind for YOU!

You seem to be coming along well in your recovery from surgery. All these surgeries are SO hard. You are incredibly brave to get one more. Hopefully this one will give you great benefit. I wish you well on your journey back home. I'm sorry you will be moving to New York, but I wish you a life of happiness wherever you are.
