Can you believe the number of people that have been keeping up with Peanut?
She is so loved and cared for by many.

Peanut called me Saturday night!!! I could not believe I missed her call...and when I returned it I got her voice mail. I did leave her a message though and I sure hope to talk to her soon. She sounded A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!

And you know Peanut, she sounded happy! This is one of the many reasons we love her.

Yes, Shelley is right. In fact, Sara had started a new thread a while back and some people kept posting to the old one asking how peanut was, so I merged them.
Warm wishes,

Such good news for someone who deserves great things. She has fought so hard. I wish her all the best. Haven't been here in awhile and enjoyed reading all the progress. I hope she continues to have such wonderful success with the transplant. Susie54

Peanut will and has given ALL of us so much thru she ongoing beautiful soul. I , for one feel blessed to have heard all the stories about her and her loving husband. I do look forward to reading more! So glad her mom is coming!

In looking through the posts it looks like these are from 2008. The last few I can't find a date. Are they from now? I hope so because it was great seeing a post from Peanut.

Oh Peanut...it is SO GREAT to see you post. You have been so missed...you really have.

I surely hope that you can give us an update, if you feel up to it...on how you are doing.

We have all wondered and have been so concerned.

May you be feeling much better and able to be here more often.

Hi Nan,

When you're reading forum messages online, look in the light green bar that is just above the body of each message. There it gives the message date. You'll see that although this thread about Peanut started a long time ago, we try to update on her condition in the same thread, so that new members know who we're talking about.

So, currently, she is doing okay. At least, she is out of the hospital. It is extremely difficult for her to talk. They are moving this month, to be closer to her mother. She loves and misses all of us.

Hello Peanut! So good to see a post from you. You have continually been in my thoughts. You are such a brave soul and a great spirit. Keep up the fighting spirit and this too shall pass.

Peace and blessings!

I know I can't be the only one missing Peanut around here.

Lisa (Peanut) has an appointment set in November to see about a possible lung transplant. You can read about her progress on her Hope and Heart website (see the Update section).

Here's some flowers for you, Peanut. We all miss you!

You're so on top of things Shelley. I miss her too and think of her often. She is such a trooper and fighter, it's amazing.

Sorry to hear she needs a transplant especially after going through so much healthwise over the past year. She will remain in my thoughts.
