I HAVE GREAT NEWS! FIRST I WANT TO THANK ALL MY DEAR
FAMILY AND DEAR FRIENDS FOR THEIR CONSTANT SUPPORT, PRAYERS, AND GOOD WISHES. WITHOUT YOUR LOVE AND CARING I WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT THROUGH
THE PAST HEALTH EVENTS AND MONTHS!!! I WISH I COULD PERSONALLY HUG AND THANK EACH OF YOU!! THE PAST FEW MONTHS HAVE BEEN ROUGH!—-MISSED SENDING MY BEST TO EACH OF YOU AT THE HOLIDAYS AND PROBABLY BIRTHDAYS—BEING EITHER IN MAYO HOSPITAL OR REHAB IN PHOENIX. FOR ALL THIS I APOLOGIZE BUT KNOW YOU UNDERSTAND. NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!
JUST OUT OF MY LAST REHAB–MY HIP IS HEALING FANTASTICALLY. MY THERAPIST WAS HERE TODAY,AND HAD ME WALKING OUTSIDE WITH MY WALKER. WE WALKED AND LONG WAY AND I DID WELL. HE EXPECTS TO WEAN ME FROM THE WALKER SOON. THE VERY BEST NEWS IS THAT I AM OFF OXYGEN TOTALLY. MY NEW ARORTIC VALVE IS MAGIC! I AM GOOD IN SEDONA AND ALSO JUST DISCOVERED TODAY, I DO NOT NEED OXYGEN IN FLAGSTAFFWHICH IS 7000′ FT. + IN ELEVATION. MY DOCTORS ARE AMAZED. GREAT KUDOS ESPECIALLY TO MY DAUGHTER, CINDY, WHO STOOD THE BRUNT OF ALL MY HEALTH PROBLEMS AND DAILY PHONE CALLS FROM MY OTHER CHILDREN MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN MY RECOVERY. I SHALL BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL TO THE DOCTORS AT MAYO CLINIC WHO LITERALLY SAVED MY LIFE!
MORE TO COME. “YOU CAN’T KEEP AND OLD IRISH BROAD
DOWN FOR LONG” WITH ALL THIS SUPPORT AND LOVE.
BLESSING TO ALL OF YOU! Dottie Correll
