Life is so much better now that Lauren does not have her PA line in. We can take walks around the hospital and they even told us she can go outside for just a little while. Lauren hasn't been outside in two weeks, what we take for granted is a big deal for her, to go outside for 10 minutes. The weather was nice, but very windy like it always is around the hospital. Lauren just sat there and took it all in.
This gentleman is Khadda, he is the supervisor for valet parking. Every day he always asks me how Lauren is doing. We got to know him from the multiple visits here in the hospital. When we would pull up to valet parking, Khadda would take care of us personally and check to see if Lauren would need a wheelchair or anything to help her get into the hospital. Such a wonderful, thoughtful man. Making friends in Boston.
As far as medical, Lauren has been starting to get shortness of breath now and then. The dr.'s are keeping a close eye on everything. We really need to get Lauren's new heart and kidney soon. She is so strong now, the surgery and recovery would so much easier for her, verses if she was to get sicker.
Please keep sending your prayers and love, we really do feel it. Lauren told me the other day, she was looking at the wall of cards and said "People really do care about me". I said "ABSOLUTELY"!!
