03/30/09, 9:13 AM - "Monday morning update":
Fred is feeling a lot better and getting
stronger. However, fluid is collecting again around his left lung...so they
are going to do the same procedure as they did with the right lung....go in
through his back between his rib cage and drain the fluid from around his left
lung. That is being done as I type this email.
He has no fever and his white blood count is
fine. His oxygen level is great (he's off oxygen) and remains great after his
They have increased the small amount of water he
can have....which is still not very much.
The fluid collecting around his lungs has nothing
to do with his swallowing.
He is in a chair most of the day now.....and is
certainly more active...it still tires him greatly after walking....but that
is what it takes to make him stronger. He is finally sleeping better at
nights and often naps in his chair.
I plan to issue updates every other day unless
something changes....no news is good news....so if you don't get an update in
2-3 days...not to worry....it means things are going well,
From the conversation I had with the doctor's
assistant this morning, I think we can plan on his being in ICU at least
another week....and if everything is ok he'll be discharged from ICU to come
We still need prayers.....it's still a long
journey....but I think we can finally see a little dot of light at the end of
this LONG tunnel.
Love to all....Janice

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 03/28/09 - "Dancing With My Stars":
* * Dancing With My
Everyone loves to
Well, it appears that most people either enjoy dancing or watching dancing. I
would imagine that the television network, ABC, gambled on their show Dancing
with the Stars. It was a gamble that hit the jackpot. Don't let ABC know this,
but I don't get it. Perhaps it's because I've always had two left feet. Couple
that with the fact that I was almost killed in an injury when I was 19 resulting
in right side paralysis, and I guess you could say I now have "1-1/2 left feet."
Regardless, I still don't get the phenomenon and I am happy for the show's
millions of viewers.
Some time ago, after I was injured, I tried to dance. My father was retiring as
Senior Rabbi of his synagogue and the synagogue was having a party for him at a
hotel ballroom with a band and, you guessed it, there was dancing. Everyone was
there, everyone was dancing, everyone was having a good time. Though most might
have questioned my attempt to dance, I never let that get to me.
So, with the band playing melodiously, I stood up from my seat at the table and
calmly asked my 82-year-old grandmother sitting to my left, "Grandma, would you
like to dance? My mother's mother then replied, "MichaelŠ oh noŠ my back is
killing me and my feet are aching as well. But thank you for the offer."
I then quickly went to my grandmother's left where my other grandmother, my 90
year old father's mother, was sitting and asked her the same question. Honey, my
knees are killing me and my neck is so sore, but if you can go out to the dance
floor, I can go as well."
That was my "bubbie" (Yiddish for grandmother) -- a spit fighter full of spirit,
always willing to try anything.
My bubbie and I went to the dance floor and began "dancing." All of a sudden, I
felt a tap on my left shoulder.
"Michael, may I cut in on bubbie?" It was my mother's mother! I smiled and said,
"Of course." Both my grandmothers were in pain -- however, both grandmothers
were willing to try.
Both grandmothers have since passed away, but I will always remember that
evening when I was honored to "Dance With My Stars." I believe it was their last
dance. As I looked to the heavens, I smiled and lovingly said,
"Thank you. First, for the dance, but more
importantly, for teaching me so much about life."

Thanks so much, Shari, I really appreciated this
From the Head
Cheerleader of 1965, Pam Smith Arnold of VA -
03/29/09 - "Sammy - School Pictures":
I was so happy to hear that you and
Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of IL)
were able to move and be somewhere you are truly happy.
Thank you, Cousin Pam!
I was also truly happy in Fayetteville (and far more
valuable and productive there than I am here, I should think)! But
that phase of my life has passed, and I do have the capacity to be happy
wherever I am, and I certainly am enjoying "my babies" - for whom I had
grown quite homesick.
Thanks for sharing these photographs with us, Cousin
