Hey everyone, Nick F here (sort of a co-admin for Barbara).
I just heard from Frances and the reason for Barbara’s lack of posting is that she’s in the hospital in Winston-Salem. Her condition is serious, but not dire at this point. They are working diligently to identify her problem and start addressing the causes and not just the symptoms. In the mean time, she is exhausted and in pain and won’t be posting until they can address those issues.
She has been tested several times for Covid-19 and is NEGATIVE at this time.
She doesn’t like being fussed over, so is not looking for cards or flowers at the moment, but if you send them to her home in Sparta they will get to her. (Although, again, she isn’t looking for that.)
There’s never a good time to go into a hospital with a serious illness and these times are scarier than normal, but she’s getting care and attention from the staff and family.
Please keep her in your prayers.
Update – 21 Jun 2020
Doctors have decide that Barbara has a staph infection and they are going to treat that with antibiotics. It will be a couple of months if everything goes well until she’s finally done, but hopefully she’ll see some improvement right away.
