Pam, thank you for the update.  You are right to encourage Lauren to be as mobile as possible in between surgeries.  It will be easier on her and will help keep complications away.  My husband had to be tough on his mom after brain surgery too.  Lauren is so brave to go through all this and you are such a strong family.  I know you can do this!  Glad to hear you are taking a little time for yourself.  It is hard to do that when you are going 90 to nothing.  Again, thanks for updating us.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Pam, so happy for Lauren and your family!  She is young and strong and will do well with these surgeries.  It is amazing to think such skilled surgeons like Dr. Sonnenday exist!   I'll be thinking of you all as plans get underway.  Please update us like you always do as things move along.  You and Lauren are special people to us!  We care so much!

Lainy,  you are such an angel to so many people on this board.  Your words are light and playful yet meaningful in every way.  I hope you feeling better soon!  You are the best!  We need you!

Great News, Kris!  You are one tough cookie!

Prayers sent, Lisa!

Pam, so happy to hear this news!  You all deserve happy times ahead!  Thanks for keeping us all up to date.  We care so much!  Pam

Wonderful News, Pam!  I know they have been dating for a long time!  So happy for them and your family!  Lots of happy times to come!

Lynn, thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.  You did an excellent job taking care of George.  He is at peace now.  God Bless.

So sorry, Lynn.  Take it hour by hour.  You are doing an incrediable job.  We are all thinking of you and George.

Lynn, so sorry to hear of your falls.  I have experience with this and it is tough.  Besides the bedside toilet maybe they can provide George with a rolling walker that has a seat.  Don't mean to scare you, but my dad became very confused and unpredictable.  Falling is a big concern.   Hope things stabilize.  Lots of good thoughts coming your way.  Pam M

Pam, I've watched your video probably 4 times!  Every time I notice something I didn't see before!  Your family life is full and rich.  I am so inspired by your attitudes!  I love the music you put with the video.  It is a beautiful tribute to Lauren!  Tell Lauren to keep fighting, winning and living life!  Pam

Tiffany, your family picture is beautiful!

My question is how do you cut a sliver of a pill?  I think you will be eating pill dust!   Love that Lauren went with and threw you under the bus with the Ativan!  You are both incredibly strong woman and you can even make a doctor's visit seem like fun!  Good for you!  I love Lauren's hair!  It is tastefully done.  Enjoy your weekend.  Pam
