Just talked to Shannon
Mon, 05-04-2009 - 8:02pm

We live about an hour apart and haven't had a chance to meet yet but we've been talking. She asked me to let everyone know how she's doing.

She finally told the T who was filling in after the death of Rose that she wants to see someone else and has been re-assigned to another Rose....the person she wanted to see. But they haven't met yet. She was supposed to see her today but was in bad pain all weekend from her elbow and saw the orthopedic doc instead. So she's starting some PT for her elbow and has to reschedule Rose. But she sounds really positive.

Leo may not be in the amount of kidney trouble they thought. His blood tests were bad but his 24 hour urine showed okay so he's pretty happy about that. Still has to see the kidney specialist but both he and Shannon are feeling far more positive about the whole situation.

She's in a lot of pain from her various joint injuries and still worried about Leo but I'd say she is much better emotionally than when she posted last. I've been in touch with her by email(as have others) and by phone. Can't wait to meet her but I'm waiting for some sunny weather. Going to rain on and off all week here in New England.

She says hi and that she loves everyone.

gentle hugs..................JennyB

I'm glad that she is going to have a T that she likes.
