OK- I called and managed to get the info. She is at Stanford. Send
<br>cards with her name on it, care of the address
below.<br><br>&gt;Stanford's address is :<br>&gt;<br>&gt;Stanford
Hospital &amp; Clinics | 300 Pasteur Drive | Stanford, California
<br>&gt;94305 | (650)

Stanford University Medical Center? Do you<br>&gt;&gt;suppose we could
send a card to her there if we wanted to? I work in a<br>&gt;&gt;very
large University hospital and patients' mail always makes it
to<br>&gt;&gt;them without a specific room/unit address...just their
name and the<br>&gt;&gt;hospital name/address is all you really need.
I'd like this<br>&gt;&gt;extraordinary young woman and DF and his family
to have some tangible<br>&gt;&gt;measure of love and support. I've been
in the hospital plenty and I<br>&gt;&gt;can't tell you how important
cards become to you...like a lifeline to<br>&gt;&gt;the real world that
exists outside those stupid walls, a pleasant<br>&gt;&gt;diversion from
sterility and

FYI to the rest of the list. Thought you'd all want to know,
and<br>&gt;&gt;please&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; understand why we may not hear
from DF for a bit. ALOT is<br>&gt;&gt;on his plate&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;

&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; Hi Theresa&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
I'm really sorry I missed<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;
<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;&gt; <br>&gt;&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;you. I was
looking forward to seeing you&lt;br&gt;again.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; My
poor<br>&gt;&gt;father, brother, step mother and now my sister are all
trying to&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>&gt;&gt;fill in for Linda and
I.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; Michelle has really dodged
a<br>&gt;&gt;bullet this time for now anyway.
She&lt;br&gt;almost&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; died last night<br>&gt;&gt;and
even the docs didn't have much hope for her. She&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
turned&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt; <br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;
<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;blue at our home last Sat. and was rushed to
Stanford. The she<br>&gt;&gt;&gt; <br>&gt;&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;
<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;had&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; another&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; episode in the hospital two days ago.<br>&gt;&gt;Yesterday they
moved her to ICU&lt;br&gt;and&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; she is on a bi Pap
machine<br>&gt;&gt;to breathe for her. Her C02 levels are
out&lt;br&gt;of&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; this world and<br>&gt;&gt;her body
has become acidic. Her kidneys have taken a hit&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
as&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt; <br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;
<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;well. She is lucid and able to talk with us
but she can't dispell<br>&gt;&gt;&gt; <b

<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;the&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; C02.&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; For now she is stable.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; I
have to<br>&gt;&gt;say this has been very difficult. I don't know if you
met her&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>&gt;&gt;Theresa but she is the sweetest
most giving young person you could<br>&gt;&gt;ever&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
want&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; to meet. She goes through this with more
bravery<br>&gt;&gt;than anybody I know.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
I'm&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; afraid that words escape me. I<br>&gt;&gt;know I
guess that we should expect this&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; but&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; it's hard to<br>&gt;&gt;think that we could lose her. She
apparently will not ever&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;<br>&gt;&gt;recover to where
she was after her transplant. She's on a lot
<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;and&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; while she may
get some better she can't get that much<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;better as
there&lt;br&gt;has&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; been too much damage. Also, going
back on<br>&gt;&gt;the transplant list is out of&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
the&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; question since she had<br>&gt;&gt;lymphoma last
summer. She would just get it&lt;br&gt;again&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; and
they<br>&gt;&gt;can't take the chance of wasting the donor
lungs.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; I will<br>&gt;&gt;be going
back to the show tomorrow and for the following days as&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;long&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; as she is stable. Linda is
staying with her at Stanford.<br>&gt;&gt;Again
I'm&lt;br&gt;sorry&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; to have missed you. Say hi to the
list I don't<br>&gt;&gt;know when I'll be&lt;br&gt;writing&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; too much.&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
David&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt; <br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;

&gt; &lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; Hi<br>&gt;&gt;Dave-&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
&gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; Sorry I missed you at the SF show. I got
a<br>&gt;&gt;chance to speak with your&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
dad&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; (at least I believe it was<br>&gt;&gt;your
dad) and he let me know you are&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
struggling&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; with<br>&gt;&gt;medical issues again
with your daughter. I am so sorry you all&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;have&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; that added stress and want
you to know that if there is<br>&gt;&gt;anything you&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt;
need,&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; please let me know. When you are at
a<br>&gt;&gt;point of letting others know&lt;br&gt;how&lt;br&gt;&gt;
&gt; &gt; things are going, drop me a<br>&gt;&gt;note. I did let the
list know that I&lt;br&gt;missed&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; you at the
SF<br>&gt;&gt;show and that your daughter was having medical
issues-&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; hope&lt;br&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;
<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt; <br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;this was not
too much of an invasion of your privacy. My thoughts<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
<br>&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;and&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt; prayer are
with you all-&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;&lt;br&gt;&gt; &gt; &gt;
