Carmen was in a lot of pain after checking in to Good Samaratin last week, so on January 20 her doctors did surgery to put in a colostomy. This took a lot of pressure off of her bowels and she started feeling better soon after.
I saw Carmen on Saturday and she was in great spirits, even to the point where seriously considered sneaking out to go salsa dancing. Now that she is able to eat well, we expect that she will check out of Good Sam sometime in the next day or so.
Many of you stopped in to see Carmen and she was truly overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from friends and family. I think she even had to turn off her phone because all the daytime calls were interrupting her rest.

Carmen is weeks behind on her email, text messages, and voicemail. We have decided to set up this blog for ongoing communications.
