Just a quick update on Deb's status:
Late yesterday afternoon while the doctors were draining fluid from Deb's lung, her lung collapsed. The medical team was completely prepared for this and quickly inserted a chest tube. She called this morning with that update and while she's no longer coughing incessantly when she talks, she says she is a pale and worn out from yesterday's excitement. She says it's the first day she's actually felt like a hospital patient.
Deb is still not knitting as she now has tubes sticking inconveniently out of her person! Ooooo... what an opportunity for an art project: Fair isle with DK wool and surgical tubing anyone?
As for her family: Mr. Pharm is wearing a path between home and the hospital. The roads have been clear so far, but it is winter in the Maritimes. (If you so inclined, please pray for Mr. Pharm's continued safe travels.)
Their darling girls are doing well in Daddy's care - although I think they do miss their Mommy being home.
Deb thanks you all for your well-wishes and prayers. (I read her blog comments to her over the phone this morning.)
I'm hoping to stop by to see Deb this evening and will print any messages that are left on her blog before 4:00pm Atlantic time. If you have a moment please feel free to leave get well wishes, tales of hospital gowns gone wrong, misadventures of meeting McDreamy when you were McSicky, or sock knitting hits and misses. We must encourage our Sock Knitting Superstar!
Thanks so much!
