A Quick Update from Ed
On Cindy's behalf, I would really like to thank all of you for your wonderful comments, your ongoing support, the cards and even gifts that have been sent Cindy's way - I can see why her blogging has become so special to her. If I haven't gotten back to you, I apologize, and I think Cindy will try to get back to you when she is better. She is on the mend. Her progress is slower than she would like but she is starting to perk up a bit and her mind is starting to be a bit clearer. The cognitive fatigue is the hardest part of this for Cindy and stimulation i.e., phone conversations, the computer, too much noise, etc., tires her out quickly and she doesn't get replenished very quickly (or to what you or I take forgranted as normal functioning). Her pain is somewhat more manageable and this is also a good sign. It has been quite hot and humid here in Ontario which is not good for her but she is working hard to remain positive. However, I do see some positive signs of improvement and I think she will realistically be back by next week (she told me to put a week on the last update which I didn't think was possible but I wanted to honour her request anyway). She misses you all. Again, I thank you for all your ongoing support, friendship and encouragement!
