Spoke with Dr. Fedorenko about getting fresh fruits and vegees with each meal. I’m not in isolation yet!
Immediately, Luda brought me a banana!!! More good news…a bit more exciting than the banana.
Sheila Rihm had her talk with Dr. Fedorenko and she has been accepted for treatment. Although, we recently officially met, we’ve been fb friends for many years and have chatted on the phone too : )
I’m so very happy for her and her family.
Dr. Fedorenko wants us to be healthy and happy. He asks if the bed is ok and if the nurses and support staff are taking good care of us. He gives us our daily schedule and his schedule as well. We have his cell # handy, We are all feeling safe, nurtured and well taken care of medically. We are given fresh shower towels and ample toilet paper. I think he’s gone above and beyond taking care of just our medically related needs.
I went for a walk with Carol, Stevie, their son Harry (from London) this afternoon. Church was closed, but we looked around it again. I’m expecting it will be open on Sunday : )
The funds needed for my treatment are slowly coming in. As difficult as it was to fundraise from home, it’s even more difficult here. Thank you for todays donations : friends from far out west that have donated before, and from those down south who have helped me on numerous occasions, and from my wonderful neighbors in Shipleys. Hope to thank you all in person one day!!!
XOXOX – any corporate sponsors who might be able to help out?
Thank you all for your support!!!
I’m calm about the treatment beginning. I’ve received my first dose of steroids this morning.
However, I’m extremely nervous that I have not raised enough funds to pay for the treatment.
I hoping some wonderful benefactor will come through at the last minute. Time will tell.
Yesterday, 7 of us left the hospital grounds. It was my first shopping trip to a local grocery store. I made it down half one aisle and my iphone was gone. I got dill, cilantro, arugula, tomatoes and cucumbers. Not my best day.
Irina is on the cleaning staff and she’s a medical assistant too. She works 24 hour days, smiles and teaches me Russian too. She’s going on vacation for 10 days, but I will see her when she returns.
Marian and Robert came during breakfast. We tidied up and got organized once again. Tried to unsuccessfully set up viber on my ipad now that my phone is awol. Had trouble with skype as well. While I was figuring out if there was any way to get my phone back, Marian and Robert went searching for more supplies for me.
They did some exploring along the way.
Sheila had undergone a full day of testing. Carol may have been picking up her son, Harry from the airport.
Beautiful Church right outside the entrance to our rooms.
We explored and found a beautiful green house.
Marian and Robert’s last day. They tried to take as many photos as possible.
