my name is ryan, and I am one of truman's (linda's) son's. I'm quite certain some of you know her here. well, I wanted to take a moment to let you all know she was admitted into the hospital late thursday night for low blood pressure, and some skin issues. you'll have to bear with me as I am not even 100 percent on exactly what's happening, as it tends to change day by day. she is doing much better as we speak, however, I was thinking perhaps some well wishes would make things even better still. I know she has come to make some good friends on this message board to which she is thankful for.

I brought her computer to her, so I know she is checking her e mail, and online almost all the time there. maybe if you choose, you could drop her a line if you feel so inclined (you can send her an email through the Forums Site Control panel, at http://www.sclero.or...p?showuser=2182) and just see how she's doing, and let her know you care...i know it would go a long way

Hi Linda ,

Sorry to hear about you being in the hospital. I will keep you in my thoughts tonight. Does this have to do with the infamous toe?

Take care, Everyone,

Thanks Ryan for keeping our members informed. We worry about each other.
By now hopefully, Linda you are home in your own house resting from your several days at the hospital. Let us know how things are going. You will get your strength back soon and be taking those brisk walks and doing your routine of old. Get well soon and write us when you feel up to it.
Strength and Warmth,
