A Long Road Ahead..........


I am so sad..........my great friend Lila at work who I eat lunch with every day, has really had a rough road. She went in to have the vein in her leg unblocked due to the complications of diabetes. She wasn't getting enough circulation to her feet and has had a sore on her foot for 6 months that won't heal. In the pre-op physical they found something abnormal with her heart. They went in and did an angiogram.......after the first postponement because she was allergic to the dye. After the procedure they couldn't get her blood pressure down. Since then, she has had several strokes which have affected both sides of her body, she is blind and can't speak. It is very somber at work because as one person put it.........To know Lila is to love her. We always had so much fun....I call her Lila Lou in a southern accent and she calls me Nicie.......since my name is Denise. At Christmas time we would take turns having a Christmas song ready every morning....I miss her a lot and if you can, include Lila in your prayers........shes a sweetheart and I miss her terribly.

That is hard when someone you care for is going through such hard times. She sounds like a very special lady. I will hold your friend in my prayers. God bless you both.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend Denise. She is lucky to have a friend as caring as yourself. I will say a prayer for her tonight and I hope she improves so you can be back together again. -Nancy
