Re: Renee

Renee Roberts nee McBride did indeed have a brain aneurisym which has has resulted in a mild stroke and the left lung has collapsed. She is as strong and as defiant as usual and even with one working lung and one working side she is still able to tell me to "go chase myself" when I ask if she will request the nurses to validate my parking.

She is very weak, but very vigilant. And anyone who knows my mom will know that she won't go down fighting.

She is still in ICU and will be for another 2 weeks minimum, but hopes and prayers are with her and with all anticpated outcomes, we expect her to be telling me to cut my hair and tuck in my shirt in no time.

Renee can be reached via my email which is if anyone wants to send well wishes.

In the meantime, we hope that she progreses as well as the doctors suggest.
