Greetings from Jan's administrator, Kecia

Hi everyone! I am posting tonight for my friend, Jan. kind of weird, huh? But Jan has just gotten out of the hospital, AGAIN, and we were talking tonight and she's exhausted. she's trying to rest, catch up on emails and then she remembered her blog. "what am i going to say?" she said. "I don't have the energy to do it". So i told her i would blog for her and catch everyone up on how she's doing.

So, she's been battling colitis since early Sept., but then recently it got so severe, she was hospitalized (the first one) and diagnosed with a secondary, more severe form of colitis. So they got things under control and after several days, she was sent home. Then she started her post hospital doctors visits to see how things were going when she mentioned to one of the doctors that she felt quite out of breath. He told her to contact her primary doctor and schedule an appt. to rule out anything serious. So that' s what she did. Her primary doctor did some blood work and an x-ray and was quite concerned. She ordered Jan to report to the emergency room immediately for suspected blood clots - and sure enough, that's what they found. One in her leg and several in her lungs! So she was admitted again and put on blood thinners and Cumadin (sp?). This was on Sat. i believe.

So, Jan just called and she was sent home a day early and is quite happy to be out of there. she's resting like i said and enjoying the peace and quiet of being at home (ever been in a hospital overnight - they are very noisy and you don't get any rest). While she was in the hospital i told her that if she really wanted to open up her Christmas present from me that she could. (i had written "No peeking" on the package). well, she just opened it and was quite thrilled. i made her one of my copper sheet metal resin necklaces. maybe when she's up to it, she'll post a pic everyone to see!

Welcome home Jan!

your friend,
