I just popped in quick to see how she is & couldn't find a post, I don't know everyone in this forum yet so I'm not sure how anyone even finds out or if they can. I've had my nose buried in a microbiology book so I have just had time to pop in for a minute here in there.

Anyways, either way, I'm thinking of you peanut & hoping you are feeling better & better everyday!

Hey Luvbnmom,
The last update that I can find is from Tangelo from June 7. Here's the link.

Update on Peanut.

We all appreciate Tangelo keeping us informed.

Hope you're enjoying learning all about microbiology. I'm sure it's pretty fascinating.

Big Hugs,

I love it when you all refer to me as Tangelo...it makes me smile every time.

I tried calling Peanut today but I didn't get an answer, so I just left a message. I'll call again tomorrow.

Love,
Tang

Thanks for the latest on peanut, "Tangelo" :rolleyes:

The fever must be something that "is the norm" w/this transplant?
At any rate, how sweet of you to lift her spirits witha message form you!

I hope that each day she improves more and more.

Hugs Everyoen!

Tangelo,
Thanks so much for the continuing update on Peanut. I'm sure did it a lot for her to hear your voice! It's good seeing LOW grade fever and reading "bringing her home". All good Stuff!

Thanks!!!!

Hi Everyone,

Is it possible to get a hospital address for us to send cards to Peanut?

Take care, Everyone.

Hi Margaret,

We wouldn't normally post when people are in the hospital or what hospital they are in, and so forth, to help preserve their safety and privacy. However Peanut's information happens to already be public, through her website/blog.

She is at Northwestern Hospital in Chicago. The link to her site, Hope and Health, can be found at Other Story Collections.

Thank you for the update, That's great she's doing better, it has been like 4 or 5 days since your update, hopefully she's been able to go back to the hotel or home by now!

An update is posted on Peanut's site, saying that she is out of the induced coma now, but that she has had some small strokes. She is still in the hospital, with a trach tube, and unable to use her right arm (so far). She is improving but it sounds like it will be a long recovery. Read the whole story -- and send your good wishes to her! -- in the latest update to her blog, at http://www.hopeandheart.org/ (see the Update link).
