“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age,
which means never losing your enthusiasm.” ~ Aldous Huxley
Our shero was feeling great today. That’s why I was surprised when I got a call saying she was headed to UK ER because her white cell count was elevated, even though yesterday’s temp had broken overnight. After a cadre of doctors looked at her wound she asked to see it for herself, made possible only by a photo of course. Then she asked me to count the staples: 84. That’s impressive indeed! They admitted our shero and started broad spectrum antibiotics. She has a spot of pneumonia in her left lung, and might possibly have an infection elsewhere, including deep in her leg, not near the wound. Despite it’s angry appearance, she’s healing nicely by all accounts. In fact, to look at her, and to talk with her, you’d never know anything was wrong. That’s why she was sorely disappointed at her setback. Nevertheless, I’m confident the UK docs will have her back running the halls on her walker in no time. Until then, all healing thoughts, prayers, sage, incense, and lighted candles gratefully accepted. I’m telling you, she is the toughest woman I’ve ever known.
