(Guest blog by Jonathan Cape)
I was supposed to update Heather’s blog on Saturday. Whoops!!!
It’s been a crazy week. It’s been so crazy that Heather has not even updated her blog in over a week and a half. So I am writing to give you the lowdown. This blog won’t be creative, witty, or even clever in any way… just purely informative…
Heather is in the hospital. She went to Athens Regional on Monday, and then they took her to Emory on Tuesday.
Why she is in the hospital:
1. Her feet are so swollen that one of them is leaking fluid. There are 2 spots on one of her feet that are seeping fluid just as if they were a dripping faucet. It’s one of the craziest thigns I’ve ever seen.
2. She is in pain. It sounds like she isn’t in as much pain as she was when she went in… but the pain has been pretty extreme. And the pain is in all types of places.
3. Her neck is messed up. She is having a tough time keeping her head up. There is something wrong with the C4 and C5 vertebrae. The docs will be fitting her for a neck brace… and a surgery may be required at some point.
4. Stomach issues. Her stomach issues are still going on. There has been no relief for that.
So, all in all, it's been a tough week. I was even out of town for business when Heather got admitted... but Heather's family was awesome and took care of her and Evalyn so well. I appreciate all that they have done and are still doing.
