Another guest post by David Frackelton, upon my instructions and taking my dictation – Marta.
Quick update: So Marta’s gut is beginning to work. We’ve got consistent output. Marta ate her first solid food this AM (English Muffin). Now she is eating the basmati rice pictured to the left. This is what progress looks like!
Marta says: “Having run out of steam for my own life over the past two weeks, I find I’m being nursed back to health through love of my friends &hellips; and Dave. The hands on caretaking is not something I’ve ever had in my life, in quite this way. It makes me cry when I reflect on that. Friends stroking my hair, massaging my feet and kissing my forehead. It makes me wonder why we don’t do this more frequently with each other.”
“But the stories are luring me back to health. Remembering and feeling life outside my sick room. My friends bring their stories and spread them like jewels, a necklace of color for me to pick up and put on again.”
