    Good morning everyone! Mrs. Read’s delivery isn’t upbeat but she said good things. Enjoy this Thursday.

    Buddy’s message on FB from 5 hours ago:
    “It isn’t looking very good right now. I hope I’m wrong and Melanie comes through OK. They’re doing their best to at least make her as comfortable as possible.”

    More prayers for Buddy and Melanie! What a tough thing to go through at any time, but after doing so well for a long time…

    From Buddy 30 minutes ago:
    “With some relief. Melanie’s getting moved to a room after she has dialysis. This seems like a positive thing. Keep it up, y’all, it’s helping.”

    Sending the strongest WosenGrizz prayers to Melanie and Buddy.

    From Buddy 8 minutes ago:
    “Am with Melanie now, she’s getting dialysis. Unfortunately, the pain isn’t really any better, but she’s got pain meds available, the magic button every 8 minutes. I guess the kidney doc on duty told her to get *them* in touch with a specialist on her condition…yeah, you’re really expecting someone in that much pain to do *your* job? Sigh.”

    I wonder if the hospital has a Patient Advocate that can coordinate things. I am sure Buddy can manage but it must have been a sleepless night and day with no end in sight

    This is all from a negative reaction to a medication? How awful!
    Sending positive energy her way.

    C. Hobbitz: Grizz was called to jury duty a couple of months ago. He served 2 days. The case was a 3-car accident. He said that it was actually very interesting.

    I just listened to Mrs. Read. She must be an acquired taste!

    Wondering how things with Rio, Beau, Friend and the little red and white house are going.

    We have been wondering too.

    Wose: 370 potential humors had to fill out a lengthy questionnaire. The upcoming case will be sensitive and time-consuming, the trial will be 2.5 weeks and a jury won’t be impaneled until Wednesday at the earliest. We turned in our questionnaires and left. The judge and lawyers will review our questionnaires today and tomorrow. Some of us will be dismissed outright, half of the remaining jurors report Monday for questioning and half will be questioned on Tuesday. Since I am going on a hiking trip in early August, I expect to be dismissed.

    Mrs. Read For Fun expects you to read for fun, not listen to her for fun. She sounds very unfun. And didn’t she read the first book, where it’s made abundantly clear that “Gaux” is pronounced “Go”, not “Gaaaawwww”?

    Thanks for the prayers, y’all. No, I don’t know that it was a negative reaction to a med, but I expect the med may have just pushed something over the edge, as it were. She’s been hving some unexplained weight gin over the past year and some, and, rather than asking, “Given tht she doesn’t drink a lot of fluids, and her eating habits haven’t changed, i.e. she ets very little, why is she gaining weight?”, they “solved” the problem at dialysis by upping her dry weight. She went from a target dry weight of 50 kilos two years ago to a target of 62.5 kilos now. That’s something like a 25pound change. And OK, they thought the underactive thyroid contributed, and it probably did, but when addressing *that* didn’t fix anything, you think they tried to check something else? Nope. Just up the dryweight, that’ll work, except that when they do that, she continues to not hit her target dry weight. So I suspect that there was something going on, but the new med just pushed the situation forward.

    Anyway, when I saw Melanie this afternoon, sadly her situation wasn’t actually appreciably better. She has more pain meds on the 8-minute mgic button, but that’s about it. Y’all, I’m really afraid she won’t pull through this time.

    Buddy: There is a Melanie shaped lump under the Quilt. It is a Quilt of comfort and healing. There is room for you there, too. Plus, it is always stocked with great snacks.

    More to Buddy: We are keeping your and yours in our prayers.
