Alison has been bad, or more correctly her body is not cooperating. So she is now in the hospital for fluids, PPN/TPN, and tests. She was unable to eat or drink anything without paying too high a price. She is still reading comments, but is one sick lady.

You are in my heart.

I bet you’re plotting who you can knit for while in the hospital. Let them make you better first.

Comment by Michelle 01.23.09 @ 8:07 am

I hope you are well enough to go home again soon. X

Oh Alison, I’m so sorry…I hate setbacks – my heart goes out to you. The only good things about the hospital…well, the only good thing about the hospital is they have great tv reception and you can watch it from bed…
You get well soon, ok?! Thinking of you and praying for you and…hope your hospital has good food!

Rich – any way you could send me an email when you get a chance? – I have a thought on something I would like to do for Alison, and need a little information..

I check in everyday but don’t always comment. Just know that you and your family, especially Richard and your Mom are in my prayers. God Bless you all!

Oh dear! I know they will take good care of her, and if her caring spirit has anything to say about it, she will rally back soon. Alison, sending you lots of gentle hugs and very strong prayers!

Hope you can rest and heal there in the hospital. They can care for you 24/7.
Please get well very soon!

As long as Richard keeps filing his posts under “life” I can remain calm. Where there’s life, there’s hope.

Comment by Laura 01.23.09 @ 9:34 am

Oh My Sweet…Please take good care of yourself! I have asked the Angels to surround you and help you with anything you need!
I am sending you love and tender hugs!
Thanks Richard!

Hi Alison:

I worked on your Concert Scarf last night and said a prayer for your good health with each pattern repeat. I know God is listening and you will be well soon. Sometimes the supervised care in a hospital environment is what a patient needs. They are able to control all your fluids and keep a keen watch on what your body needs. Love and hugs to you Alison. Stay strong you will get well. Bonnie

I’m so sorry your body is angry at being fed! I hope Dr. Rubinstein can prevail upon your body to get rid of that anger very soon. I’m sending my very best wishes from Reno, and I’ll be sending them from wherever else I go, too.

Comment by RobinM 01.23.09 @ 11:23 am

Sending healing thoughts your way. Sort of a thank you, I guess, for your lovely shawl book. I look forward to a time when I can know you better.

Comment by Helen 01.23.09 @ 11:32 am

<3 – pure, and unadulterated. Thank you for the updates, Richard.

Alison – as you had family at the inauguration – this link allows you to zoom in on all the people there – maybe someone can help you find yours!


Comment by Mary Seabrook 01.23.09 @ 12:26 pm

Prayers – to surround your sick body, your loving husband, your devoted mother, your compassionate father, your scattered children, your attending physicians and nursing staff. All are being lifted up in prayers from TN – for God to work one more miracle in your life. He has done it before, am believing Him to do it again. Rena

We’ll do the knitting, we’ll do the rest of the world, we’ll do the healing thoughts. You just concentrate on getting better. Remember how wonderful the musicians were the last time you were in the hospital? You’ll heal this time too.
