Hi -

I've been away for about 2 months because my Pals (Pat) has been in ICU with Pneumonia, and then has come home on a vent. The vent was always in her plan - the pneumonia was not (LOL).

We have had a really rocky course because of some hospital errors (she aspirated tube feedings, they gave her bedsores, never got her out of bed in 50 days - yada yada yada).

But I am back and we are regaining our normal life, albeit very slowly.

To all of you I say thanks - Cindy, Al, Mike, Jeff and many, many others. Your words to each other have been a constant source of support in my life. I can do this vent thing fairly easily because of all of the things I have learned here.

I also want you to know that venting is not all that intimidating. I have no fear of the care and I do not find it exhausting.

I'm glad to be back among my friends - and I thank you all for everything!

Love - Beth

Glad to hear from you Beth. We have so many new members here it is easy to slip through the cracks. Nice to have an update and hope things improve now that Pat is home.

AL.
