Carmen Hospitalized

Carmen was hospitalized for abdominal pain at Good Sam on Wednesday, Feb 18. She is feeling better now, and if they get her stabilized she expects to be discharged on Monday, Feb 23 at the earliest. She will probably transition to hospice care next week.

In the meantime, she has asked that friends limit their visits to the following visitor hours:

10am - 12noon
5:00pm - 7:00 pm

Carmen gets tired quickly, so please limit your visits to 20 minutes.

Back on Chemo

Carmen wants everyone to know that she is not bedridden or anything like that. Here we see her in good spirits as she prepares for a blood transfusion on February 3.

This week she started chemo, so that's what she's keeping in the purse there. She also has daily radiation, but neither one is causing her discomfort at this time.

Even though Carmen has lost weight, she does has an appetite. So you are encouraged to push doughnuts and cheeseburgers at her ;-)
