JJ,

Peanut has been through a lot but being the fighter that she is, she has made tremendous progress. We are all thrilled! I know you will be too.

yeaaaaah, peanut is going home! She has been so brave and has been through so much with this procedure. I am so happy to see her progressing so well at this point considering what all she has been through!!!!!!!!!!!

When I first found this website, Peanut was one of the ones to reply to me and give me courage and hope. I also miss her in the chat room!
She is truly a wonderful person and I will be glad to hear from her in person.

love,
Mel

Lisa returned home from Chicago on Tuesday! She is doing great, she is walking on her ownand is able to do a lot of things
on her own like wash her hands, eat out at restaurants, put on her
slippers. She can get in and out of the car with out any difficulty.
It is very exciting. She still has her great sense of humor and her
smile has fully returned. There is a lot of laughing going on. She is
getting stronger everyday and her speech and ability to gather her
thoughts continues to improve. Her past memories seem to all be in
tack including knowing her way around the city. Her vision is still a
bit blurry and she has some double vision but the eye doctor said her
eyes are perfectly healthy and are working together with both close
and far away vision so as her body gains strength her vision will
improve. Lisa lungs are getting better and the doctor said walking and
being active will continue to strengthen her lungs. Hopefully soon Lisa will be ready to get back online and read everyone's comments and contribute herself.
Thanks for all your support, thoughts and well wishes they are really working!

Just great progress because she's such a fighter and so determined to get her life back "before" scleroderma. I am so happy she continues to get better each day and I am confident that she will beat this completely and be an example to all. Please give her a big hug to her for me and tell her "way to go!". I am anxious for when I see her starting to post again as she is a ray of sunshine for everyone.

Warm hugs,

Peggy

I was wondering what the link is to her website, I can't find it on here. I read the thread that she went home & is doing better, but I just wondered how her progress was going.
