    Karen's husband gave an update on Facebook: "So far we know she had a few strokes and her vision and balance is affected. Two vertebrae arteries were completely clogged and resulted in vertebral artery dissection (VAD). So far we just wait and watch to make sure symptoms don't get worse. She is on blood thinners to prevent clotting and is seeing PT and OT for next steps. Pray she doesn't have to go for major surgery."

    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Prayers for Karen L. and her family.

    More prayers for Karen.

    I hope the blood thinners do the job and no surgery is needed. I also hope this can be prevented from happening again.

    Wishing the best especially for the sake of little Sylvia.

    Sreedhar posted on Facebook again late yesterday.
    Wanted to provide an update, not much new to report, we're still hanging at the hospital waiting for next steps. Thank you all for your kind words and prayers.
    I will keep folks here posted when I see or hear anything new.

    I heard from her husband on Facebook - Karen L. is coming home today, on blood thinners and will have to be monitored very carefully. Still I know getting home always has made me feel much better, and like I will heal faster!

    Another update from Sreedhar Lakamsani, Karen husband:
    Karen is still doing physical therapy for at least 2-3 more weeks. She feels that balance and vision have not improved which is frustrating. But, we are hopeful it will get better. There are several follow-up doctor appointments which will tell us next steps. Still hoping for no surgery.
    Also requesting prayers for a friend's son and daughter-in-law, she is pregnant with twins, and there are complications, so she may end up on bed red for the next few months, prayers for safety and healing for the babies would be appreciated!

    Tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of when my Granny passed away.

    Some of you may have seen this on facebook... My dear friend Billie has been in ICU for 2 weeks fighting for her life. She is on life support. She & I worked together for many years, and she retired a couple of years ago and moved to Washington. We have kept in touch, though. She has been in town helping her oldest daughter and... well, as you can guess, she fell ill. My heart is so sad for her and the family. The girls (gosh they are just almost as old as I am) have asked if I want to go see her. I need to think long and hard about it. And pray on the matter. Billie is unresponsive (and has been for the entire time she's been in the hospital) and her kids have been told to get prepared to make THAT CHOICE.

    I don't have many regrets. We have kept in touch. And in almost all of our emails we signed off with, "love and miss you". She was like a mom to me at work.

    I just need a miracle to happen for her.

    I will miss you forever, my sweet Scooter Bug. You were my best friend. 9/21/1995 - 1/23/2010
    Goodbye, Oreo. Gone too soon. 4/2003 - 9/12/2011.
    Farewell & Godspeed, sweet Jadie Francine. You took a piece of my heart with you. 11/2002 - 8/8/2016
