Lois is back in the hospital, with MRSA infection in one foot and the other is infected as well. She is awaiting a second opinion on the possibility of amputation.

To say the least, she is scared and very much alone. Her heart and mind are in turmoil, as I hope you can imagine.

I am asking for support from all of you.....If you have a few minutes out of your day to give her a call, it would be treasured by her. She loves TU and ALL the members and friends so very much.

Her phone number is (414)385-4708 direct number to her room.

I will let her give out the address if cards/flowers want to be sent.

Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers all this time. I figured you deserved a little time off --- but don't let it happen again! lol


Just checking in and wondering how you're feeling Lois.
Just spoke to Lois. Her current phone number is 414-325-4071. She is currently at the Mount Carmel Health and Rehabilitation Center, 5700 North Layton Avenue; Spruce 319, Greenfield, WI 53220 She mentioned something she could use some technical advice concerning a webcam for her computer. I think it would be nice if we could fill her room full of Halloween cards.
Thank you David!
I will call her in the morning about the webcam :)
OHHHHHHHHHH you are Wonder Woman I tell ya! Love ya sweetie and thanks for all your are one smart little cookie! ;)
no problem,

please fly here now so this wonderwoman can get some sleep! :)
Just spoke with Lois. For the past we she hasn't been able to use wi-fi to go online. She's starting some new grafts for her feet. She says thanks to Joanne for her Halloween care package and to others as well.

Just spoke with Lois. She's taking Thanksgiving Day as an opportunity to venture out to her apartment and then return back to the facility where she is currently residing at where she will be this evening.

Her phone number and address are the same as in earlier postings. Try to remember her this holiday season with a card or phone call.
