An update

Saturday, March 09, 2013

Here is the latest on Ev. She still is sore. No broken bones, at least. She does have a concussion. If she hits the spot, she gets very nauseous and has gotten sick over it. She is constantly tired and weak. She's also not very hungry, but appears to be gaining weight. That is probably because she finds it difficult to do her exercises. But all of you know how stubborn she is. She keeps on doing her best. She still doesn't remember what happened other than she tripped on something and fell. I have been reading your responses to my post and she smiles, then tears up and tells me how blessed she is to have such good friends. I thank each of you for that. You'll never know how much it helps her to be even more determined to get better and get back to you as soon as she can. She wanted me to tell you I've been doing her status and keeping track of everything for her trackers. She says I've really screwed up her status remarks and laughingly tells me she may have to stop me before all her friends think she is crazy. Thank you for all of your prayers. We both feel a person can never have too many in their life. She prays for all of you each day, but even more so during this lenten season.

    So when I read her status in the past I would read Bob. I have worked with teenagers who will say something then say Bob, so i thought Ev was hip to this teenager fad. I hope she recovers well and fast.

    Hope each day is seeing improvement - and glad to hear nothing's broken! The rest will do her good. Tell Ev that your "ghost-writing" for the status lines is keeping us guessing, lol...

    Was she checked out by a doctor? I don't see if you mentioned that or not. I hope so. If she's gaining weight it could be from something caused by her fall, such as a blood clot or edema, so I hope she's keeping a close eye for that stuff. Normally a few days without exercise won't cause a significant weight gain.

    Ev, I hope you're feeling better very soon. You're such a wonderful and sweet person, which is why we all care about you and are thinking of you. Take good care of yourself so you can come 'hang out' on SP again.

    Tell Ev that I am glad that she has no broken
    bones. I am sorry to hear that she has a
    concussion. Please tell her to take it easy
    and get well and feel better. My Mom fell
    @ home abt. 7 mos. ago, hit her head
    and is currently in the nursing home. But
    of course, she is 93. emoticon

    Thank you for the update. Tell her that she needs to get well before she tries to do to much, including exercise. She will get back into it, but right now, she should take it slow. If you haven't already, check with her doctor. We don't want that concussion to have any long-lasting, adverse affects.

    Yikes... just stumbled on Ev's blog, and was inspired by her story, and then horrified to hear of her fall. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    Bob, I just posted on your first blog. Delighted to hear nothing is broken, but the head can be a problem. The old saying about "Get your head on straight" is so true and important. Our head weighs about 8 to 9 lbs when it is on straight and gets heavier when it is not straight. The cranial fluid does not run as well from our brain to the bottom of our spine when it is interrupted and can create numerous problems with headaches, vision and our balance. Give Ev my best and tell her I am sorry did not know of this earlier. Bob thanks for taking such care of her, you are a jewel.
