Catching Up (part one)

Sorry it's been a while since I've written. I've been on the go, in and out of town, and lots of stuff going on. I've really logged the miles. But that's showbiz, now isn't it? Let's see, since last I wrote, my friends Carolyn and Doug and what Doug has been battling... His body was/is full of edema and it's viral. At first they thought that Doug caught something when they were vacationing in Mexico. But after checking some tests and stuff, it turns out he started showing symptons before they had left. Anyway, Doug's adenoids were so swollen that they had to have an ENT specialist (ear, nose, and throat), come in to try and remove some of the excess fluid off of him... They took 20 lbs... that's twenty POUNDS of fluid off of his face... they also are going to trach him... that really sucks but I guess that it has to be done so he can breathe... It's never fun to see someone who's on a breathing machine in ICU... but to see that ventilator hooked up to a newly created hole in their throat so they can breathe... that just whizzes. But at least he's still alive. They think they might have a beat on what is wrong with him but are not sure... so they transferred him to the University of Michigan hospital in Ann Arbor... I've never liked the Wolverines in sports but when it comes to a friend's life... then I say GO BLUE!!!
