Thanks again Sara...it's always so good to hear from you that Peanut is getting stronger every day and is expected to continue that way. I'm very happy for her (and her loved ones as well), such terrific news. She obviously has a great friend in you too! My best to all of you! :) :)
Sending good wishes your way!

Thank you again,

LISA IS GOING HOME! Update from Sara
Lisa will be flying home to Arizona on Tuesday July 29th. She is very excited to be going home. She is doing better every day. Her energy is increasing allowing her to go out on outings and talk more on the phone. Her voice is really starting to come back along with her control of her body. She is walking with a walker farther and farther each day and increasing her strength and stamina. She will be flying home on a commercial airline with her mother in law. I will be arriving in Arizona the same day to welcome her home and help her out for about a week. The physical therapy will continue at home along with figuring out her vision problems. She is seeing double and has cloudy vision but this too will get better. She is so excited to go home and see her cat Ari and her husband and all her friends. Hopefully she will be posting updates herself soon!

Sara please keep us posted on Lisa's health even when you are staying with her. You can each give us a different side to the same story as things get better each day for Lisa. You are an awesome friend to be able to give up your lifestyle for a week here and there for your, our Peanut. Let her know every one of us is excited for her return of good health and her return to her own home. I am so happy to have heard this news.
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl

What great news. I knew she was a fighter and she is showing her strength and determination in getting to where she was before this disease. I am so glad she will be home and with that setting I'm sure her recovery will be even faster with having all of her friends and family around. Please tell her how happy I am and that I can't wait to hear from her in person again.

Warm hugs,

Peggy

Wow! That is such awesome news! She is an inspiration to me, when I feel like hockey-poo, I am reminded of Lisa's strength & it not only makes me straighten up a bit, but it actually lifts my spirits because it also reminds me of how much better she is doing now. I'm really excited for her and I haven't even spoken with her before!
