British Columbia, Canada
Earlier today Duncan sent me an email to ask if I knew how Lyra (Madam Chipmunk) was doing and I realized that I had been so busy with my own life and the holidays I had not spoken to Lyra for a while. So I got called Nan to get her on the phone too, and we called Pipps's little chipmunk to see how she was doing. Like I mentioned to Lyra and I will to all of you, she is going to have her good days and bad days, and she is going through some bad ones right now which we hope will improve soon.
After her operation she went to physiotherapy for her leg and went a little overboard on the treadmill, which caused some damage to her back that is unknown at this time. She will be going to a back doctor to see what is causing her all the pain, but her immediate problem seems to be pain management. As we all know with severe pain you lose your focus and are not exactly Suzie or Simon Sunshine as it plain hurts! She was exceptionally sweet (as only Lyra can be) considering the amounts of pain she in, and put up with Nan and I for almost an hour on the telephone. Lyra is Lyra, hopeful and always putting up a wonderful front but this time even she admitted she is not too well and in severe pain. She is ever hopeful about her birthday party still taking place, but we will keep everyone posted on that subject.
She actually apologized for not being able to fully participate in the forums at this time as she has lost her focus and canít concentrate to read, let alone sit up, read and comment. My goodness Ė this lady has done more commenting and reading on this site and is so well loved. Please keep Lyra in your prayers if you will, and that was a request straight from Lyra. When she feels better she said she would try to leave everyone a note herself. If you wish to email her with prayers, David will read them to her. When you are in severe pain it almost is healing to hear from friends with prayers and encouraging words.
Thank you all for your time.
