Good News: (Sunday, January 4, 2009)

Just a short post to let you all know that plans are afoot to get Alex home by Tuesday afternoon. The immuno-suppressants (in concert with the antibiotics) seem to have worked for Alex. Soooo…with luck we will get her sprung outta there and back home to convalesce. I’ve just now returned from a nice visit, having brought her some fish and chips and sat with her in the beautiful 4th floor atrium. Her appetite is back, which is really encouraging, as is her sense of humour. She joked about how I’d come for a visit and she’d snoozed through half of it. Actually, while she slept I read a great book (which I’d really purchased for Alex) called The Two Kinds of Decay by Sarah Manguso. It is a memoir of a smart young woman’s battle with a rare chronic affliction. This book will obviously resonate with Alex’s experience. I got it to help her feel not only less alone with her fears, but also to get outside of herself and see how another young person copes with an enormous life-altering challenge. Well worth the read. Hope she likes it too.

Let’s hope the next post you read here will be by Miss Alex herself!
