On December 27 - Cathy went home from work at lunch time with flu like symptoms. She was sick and rested for 12 days.... by Sunday, January 7th, she had very little strength and was brought into the ER. She is very weak and looses energy quickly. Although we are without any confirmed diagonisis (perhaps a bad virus? perhaps something else???) we know one way we can help Cathy and that is to buy her a new mattress! When she gets home she will continue to need lots of rest.
One of the things that prevented her from sleeping while sick, was her mattress. She was trying to rest and sleep for days and unable to because the springs in her bed were poking her and causing her pain. She created a 'pillow-top' bed for herself by lining up 4 pillows under her. She certianly is creative and resourceful!
With the money raised, we will be able to buy her a brand new double mattress!
Thanks for loving her. She will certianly think of each of you every morning she wakes up rested and pain free!
