Hello from Room 650

A week that started with the promise of a smooth recovery began going south on Tuesday and never recovered. In addition to the expected post-surgical issues, I have been struggling with a fever. After spending this afternoon at the ER at St. Joseph's, I was admitted to the hospital this evening. Perhaps you can hear the drip drip drip of the antibiotics flowing into the IV tube. I expect that to continue through at least tomorrow. Please know that I am resting comfortably in my luxurious suite in the respiratory isolation wing, and I will be in touch.

Thoughts of you tonight. Allman Brothers at Chastain, warm night with assorted MOT spanning a half century. May your drips work their wonders and bring hopes for a good tomorrow. “People can you feel it? Love is in the air”

Just a bump in the road! Once they take good care of you there and get you through this setback, PLEASE take it easy!!! We all admire your fortitude and "can do" attitude, but your body needs to rest and heal. Gosh I hope "room 650" wasn't the name of some awful movie!

We are thinking of you and pray for your speedy recovery. Make sure all the staff washes their hands or have on fresh gloves before they touch you. You need to stay away from all extracurricular germs! Love Ya,
Terri & Barry

Hi Elyse. I am sorry to hear that you are back at the hospital, but I am glad you are comfortable. I hope they are taking good care of you. I know you will be strong and headed home before you know it. I'll be thinking of you. Love, Brigette

I hope by the time you read this you have been sent home. That run in the woods at Milton was just a bit too much! I will work on a better arrangement for the next "walk". Be strong.

Hang in there Elyse. You'll weather this and get better and out of there. Maybe it's G-d's way of saying you were overdoing it and needed bedrest. Who knows.Just get your strength back to fight this and we'll look forward to hearing from you again back at home.Take care, Michelle S

Like everything else, you will conquer all, including this fever and this slight little "bump in the road". You need to hurry up and get home to enjoy your new bed and sheets...they have got to be better than room 650, and you know how I feel about those sheets.....
Anyway, I'm back in town now, so I do hope to see you soon, and I hope that is at home!
Feel good and rest!
