“Kallie’s husband, Paul, (known as Phishgod at the Pub) gave me an update and it is not the best of news. Kallie is temporarily back in the nursing facility because she has lost mobility.
An excerpt from his note:
” Kallie wanted me to email you & let you know she hasn’t been
Online & pojo-ing with you because she is back in the nursing home,
& has been for about the last three weeks or so……
Her lymphedema and some related medical problems made it progressively harder to get up and move to & from her chair(to) wheelchair or even enough to stand a little– because she lost feeling & movement in her strong leg.
….She may be there for an extended period of time, so it may be sometime before she is back on line.
…She wanted me to let you know that she misses her poet friends and to wish you all the best for the holidays.
Happy holidays to you, yours and to all her poet friends!”
It really breaks my heart that our jazzy-girl Kallie is spending the holidays
in a medical facility. I know she would rather be home. It would brighten
her day immensely if everyone would send her a card from time to time.
Lets do our Pub thing and make her Christmas as bright and cheerful as
In addition, it would be so very nice to remember Paul in your prayers.
He is devoted to Kallie, and I know his heart is aching.
(a bit of trivia…many years ago these two dear poets met at The Rainbow’s
Edge … [which later became The Peaceful Pub])
