Today, I was able to speak to a close friend on the phone for the first time since she was admitted to hospital and subsequently lost her large intestine, developed septicemia, nearly died, went into a coma, was on life support for 9 days, had both her legs amputated, and was then told last week she would also lose her right hand. Yet in the 30 minutes we were speaking, we laughed with each other almost the whole time. Such amazing strength! MMT

Dear Girlypants1979, if possible go and meet her. I bet you can see the flare in your friend's eyes. Usually using phone while undergoing heavy dose of medication is risky. So just keep that in mind. MMT Too!

Hi there, thanks for your advice. Believe me if I could see her I would but unfortunately we live in different countries and I'm not able to leave my kids for a long period of time. She's been out of ICU for a few weeks now and has been cleared to take phone calls. She's also not on very heavy medication at the moment as she's trying to deal with the pain using alternative methods. But thank you for your thoughts :)

Cheers then! You're friend will be there in my prayers!:-)
