Welcome Home, Mary Ann!

Mary Ann HomeThe last two months have been quite the ordeal here at Crabb Hollow. It started in May when Mary Ann began complaining about a sore toe. By 5/13 it was causing her so much agony that we had to go to the emergency room. To make a long story short, eventually it was diagnosed as an infection aggravated by her type one diabetes. She spent almost the entire month of June at Mercy San Juan Hospital in Carmichael and endured three surgeries to remove the infected area. After another two weeks at the American River Center, she developed a fever and was readmitted to Mercy. A massive dose of antibiotics was administered, and she was finally allowed to come home on July 1st.

Suffice to say that I know every pothole between Grass Valley and Carmichael. Thanks to everyone who helped out during this trying time.

    One of the disadvantages of living 2,800 miles from Nevada City is that my ear-to-the-ground news sources are almost nonexistent. (In other words, no Friday evening Shifter sessions).

    This, then, is the first I have heard of Mary Ann’s diabetes-related infection. So sorry that she had to go through so many weeks of pain and treatment, but glad to hear that she is back home and in you loving, caring hands. And that, of course, is the best medicine of all.

    YAY for Mary Ann! It’s too bad she can’t get on her ruby slippers quite yet, but I know she will soon. We hope to see her out and about real soon! She has been missed!
    Best wishes to you both!

    I’m glad you’re back home, Mary Ann!

    Having just had a heart operation, I can imagine that Mary Ann’s as sick of hospitals as I am. But even if it takes robotics, I’ll see you both at the reunion in a couple years.
    Be well.

      Glad to hear you survived the ordeal. After what I’ve seen the last three years, the hospital is the last place you want to be if need to recover your health.

    I can as well chime in on being ‘in hospital’ as the English say. The nurses are often sweet, the food stinks, and it’s ALWAYS good to get back home. What I wanna know is how come Mary Ann is always smiling? I love you guys alot.
