Hi everyone. Ann is continuing her recuperation in Houston. She is able to sit up and is eating food on her own (although her daughter Pam says, "She eats like a bird, but always has." :-)). She is still in a lot of pain, but with such invasive surgery, that is certainly not surprising. The pain medication is helping but also making her nauseous, so I'm praying for some relief for her soon.
I spoke to her just briefly on the phone. She was barely audible, as she had just had a breathing treatment which makes her throat sore. (And she already has such a soft, sweet, Southern Belle voice! :-)) But I was able to tell her how much we all loved her and that SO many of you have been continually checking in and praying for her!
Debbie has gone home to check on Roo and all her other beloved birds. I know that'll make her feel better!
Both Debbie and Pam are just the sweetest, most loving daughters! It is of great comfort to know that Ann is surrounded by such a beautiful and caring family!!
Pam told me that they are HOPING that Ann will get to come home Thursday. I think I can speak for all of us when I say it will be so GREAT to see her back home! :-)
Love to all of you,
