Another, very pleasing, update....

Hello again,

I'm happy to say that Louise has phoned me a few times just recently. She wanted me to say hello to you and pass on the latest news. Her kidney function, while still not where it should be, is stable: so, no dialysis! Tomorrow she's moving to the sixth floor Physical Therapy, and she'll probably stay there for about two weeks, I think. She sounds MUCH more vibrant and happy!

Smiling!

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Good News!

Hope she has a speedy recovery and comes back on soon :hug:

I'll repeat: have a steady and fast recovery Louise! :group:

Thank you everyone for your prayers, chants, and the sending of good thoughts to me. I won't reply in depth right now. Forgive me. I still don't feel up to a lengthy reply. After getting out of the hospital, I went to a nursing rehab facility where i ended up getting an infection on the surface of my skin. The heart surgeon put me back in the hospital for a week. I just got out yesterday and will be receiving IV antibiotics for awhile longer here at home. I am using oxygen now too. Hope that changes. I am tired, but glad to be home.

Love and hugs to you all :heart: :group:

Hi sattva,

there's a time and a season for everything, and right now for you it's the season for lots of rest, relaxation and healing...definitely don't exert yourself with replies to us, we are fine...just get well!

:heart: ,

manas. :anjali:

May the Triple Gem of the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha be with you and protect you, Sattva.
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

Hello Sattva

I haven't been in the chat these days so I haven't seen you in a while, or heard about you. How are you doing?
