Two of Louisiana's children are in the hospital.

Monday, December 18, 2006, 11:05 a.m., C.S.T., Nashville, Tennessee~

Dear All~

This will be short, but I had to let you know that two of my children (Johnny and Ronee') are in the hospital. Johnny went in on the first, and Ronee' went in two days ago. Johnny had a spell with his heart (tachcardic, or rapid, heartbeat; it was going at a speed of over 160 beats a minute at one point, and he had difficulty breathing), and Ronee' had a flare up of her JRA. Her JRA  is affecting the joints in her elbows, shoulders, ankles, feet, hands, fingers, wrists, back, and the lining around her lungs.

Johnny is in the ICU stepdown (just so the nurses and doctors can keep a close eye on him, given his past health history), and Ronee' is in the regular Pediatrics ward. Both are on monitors, and both are on oxygen (nasal prongs). They are at the moment doing quite well, thank goodness.

I have been at the hospital since Johnny went in, and I have hardly been home. Then Ronee' decided to come in. (Big Sigh!!) Seems that is all I have been doing lately: if I am not working here, I am here during my off hours, waiting for visiting hours, so I can see the kids. I haven't gotten much in the way of sleep, which isn't good; if I don't get the needed rest soon, I will end up in the hospital, along with Johnny and Ronee'; that would not be good at all!

Bill, at least, has the opportunity to be at home with the remaining kids, and at least he has been getting some needed rest during this medical ordeal. He has been calling me every day, to see how Johnny and Ronee' are doing, and I have been keeping him (and also our neighbors, friends, other family members, and our church family) posted on the latest news on Johnny and Ronee' 's medical conditions. Seems that the phone never stops ringing. (Sighhhh)

The remaining kids have been busy making get-well cards for Johnny and Ronee', and they have been praying hard. Our church has been praying hard for a miracle for Johnny and Ronee'; hopefully they will be out of the hospital before too long. That would be great if they could be out of the hospital in time for Christmas; that would be a miracle come true !

I will keep you posted regarding Johnny and Ronee'; stay tuned! Just keep us in your prayers during this difficult time; I don't know if I can take much more in the way of stress! It has been a bad time these past few weeks (especially when it comes to Johnny!), and I am afraid if I don't stop worrying like I am, I am either going to get ulcers or end up in the hospital! Argggh!!

Take care, all, and try to have a wonderful Christmas season! Never forget the true meaning behind Christmas: the celebration of the Birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! Also have a wonderful, happy, prosperous, and healthy New Year!

God bless you all mightily!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tennessee, Louisiana Mayrah Therese Sandusky, R.N. :(

You are A M A Z I N G !!!!!!

Up an at'em, girl!!! If your strength, spirit and irrespressible energies can be translated from and into your characters, which I am sure they can, then the Sanduskys are set to have HUNDREDS of kids to love, cherish and worry over... just like we do you!! You be well and make sure you take care of you and your twin as absolute priority... that's what the Sanduskys would wish for! :)) And we KNOW they'll be keeping their diaries in the meantimes, anyways... Either way, you have a few books in the making, doubtless. WONDERFUL to have you back! Be good! :)) LOL K xx

As always your stories and your connection to characters is compelling, Karen. Good to see you back. If this partially inspired by your own experiences of late, then you've done what most good writers do which is use their experiences to make their stories richer and more realistic. :-) Bless you. ~~Nordette
