Pattie Osterholt

Welcome to Pattie's CaringBridge site.

On Halloween night, Mom was admitted to the ER for flu-like symptoms. Since then,  she's been admitted to the ICU and had an emergency surgery. It'll be a long recovery, but all seems to be going well now.

While she's in the hospital, we're making some fairly major changes to her house to ensure that it is a safe, healthy, comfortable place to continue her recovery. Goals include:

New floors (carpets are the enemy)

New laundry (getting to the basement with a walker: unlikely)

New bed (recovery wants comfort)

Your gift will help us to make her house a refuge for recovery. Thank you so much for being a part of her story with us. <3 <3 <3
