Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

A little bit more ICU, after all ...

Well, we all jumped the gun a little. Judy is going to stay in ICU overnight until Saturday morning because she—of all people!!!—has not been peeing enough. Her body is retaining a little extra fluid and she has been given a "water pill" via the IV to remove some of that.

So, we are staying overnight in her room in ICU. The nurse says she'll be moved to her room sometime in the morning.

Otherwise, there's quite a bit of discomfort that Judy is having, but she's still spunky and certainly bossed me around when I didn't take my break at the time that she had envisioned two days ago. Well, that's our Judy! Always thinking of others, never of herself.

so glad to hear that Judy is doing well. Please tell her that I am thinking about her & I am going to try to come see you guys maybe Saturday or Sunday. I know that Judy is going to be fine. We are praying for you both.

Your up-dates are good. You answered some questions I had thought about as well. Judy, your big "S" (not big ass) incision will stand for "Superwoman/Superhealer!" Keep resting and peeing...the irony of YOU not peeing enough!
We love you Superwoman!
