Kelley is still at UC Davis. She is still very weak, and extremely susceptible to infection and in fact has developed a worsening case of shingles (skin infection). She therefore is still in quarantine, so will not be able to recieve any visitors. She probably is still too weak to deal with phone calls as well, and no doubt has a huge back log of messages on her cell phone.
Her overall condition as far as fatigue and strength after her surgery is improving but she has a ways to go. I'm sorry I have no details to provide as to why these complications are happening. I think it is safe to say that the big picture is that the physical dysfunction that the tranverse myletis has caused has left Kelley very vulnerable to alot of potential complications.
I would like to encourage folks to post a comment to this blog if you want to pass on your thoughts and best wishes to her at this time. I think this would be nice way for kelley to be able to recieve your communications until she is feeling better, and better then clogging her phone and email with messages she just can't cope with right now. Her family could also help with sharing your sentiments with her from this blog as well. It is so frustrating at times like these to feel like there is so little we can do to really help, but I think our prayers and sentiments can actually help in a significant way. So please figure out how to post comments to the blog, and send your positive energy and thoughts her way. Sue
