From Buffy Via Janet

Buffy's best friend Janet left this note for me and some of us, knowing we are all concerned I thought I would post it for everyone to know that Mike is OK.

Her note is followed by our (Janet and I) email exchange.

Hi, everyone!! I thought that I had Justine's e-mail address but now I can't find it! anyway, Suzanne asked that I let everyone know that she's not able to connect yet to the Internet at the hospital, but she wanted you to know that Mike came through the surgery okay, though he's in a lot of pain. I'm going up to the hospital tomorrow and will take her goodies (like wine, which she specifically requested!). She's fine but she sounds tired. anyway, please contact me and I will be happy to pass on any messages. I'm going to kidnap her tomorrow for a couple of hours at least and take her to lunch, maybe bring her home if she wants to for a shower or whatnot. If anyone has anything special that they would like me to include in her "hospital survival kit," please give me your suggestions! all I know for sure right now that I'm taking to her is wine and a couple of National Enquirers! that should keep her busy for a while! My e-mail address is janetkat1@yahoo. com.... She didn't want anyone worrying. On her behalf, thank you guys so much for your thoughts and your prayers. I know she appreciates it very much, and so do I.

Janet you are an example of a lifelong friend. Please tell Suzanne that most of all I am glad Mike came through the surgery well. I know she will maintain her spunk and humor throughput this and will get a great blog out of it!


Thanks for responding! I'm not even sure at this point where I posted that message -- it was late for me when we got in and I had been up since about 4:00 a.m. working. Would you guys please make sure that the word gets out? Suzanne was most concerned that everyone would be worrying, and she didn't want that.

Thank you so much! and you are right... she will definitely get some good blog material! Knowing her, she has her camera with her and is skulking around the hospital looking for anything that catches her eye to blog about! I will definitely convey any and all messages...

take care... j

Raquel! How are you this morning? Your post is sooooo sweet! Buffie will certainly appreciate it! I am so glad to hear that her husband is recovering nicely! (Despite the pain)

I think I am going to go get those Lamps! (smile) I just have to go on a wild hund to drum shades!

Thanks a million for your input!

Raquel!! How are you? That is so nice of you to post the message from Buffie's friend. Mike is in our prayers.

Oh, I'm a silly. I was teasing about craving salad because of the name of the ranch reminded me of Hidden Valley Ranch salad dressing. I did crave and eat everything in sight!

You've done some remodeling on your blog and it looks great!! Hope all is well with you and your little bunch!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Thanks for posting the letter from Janet. It's good to know that she has a friend looking out for her. It's frustrating being stuck in the blogisphere and not being able to do anything for her.

Justine said...

Buffie's back online now too!!!!!!!! Woooooooooo hooooooooooooo! Thanks for hooking her up, J!

Justine :o )

Thanks, Raquel, for posting and letting everyone know what was going on! You guys are really the greatest... and wish I could take credit for getting her back on line, but happily that little problem was fixed before I got to the hospital this morning, thank goodness! I know she was really missing everyone!

Thanks so much for letting us all know! I was a little concerned when she didn't leave any word on how he was doing, but of course I should have known she'd be right at his side!
