Dearest pipTalk friends.  

Those of you who know Elizabeth Santos are aware that she has been battling Parkinson's Disease for over a decade.

The time has come for Liz when her mobility is so impaired that she can't function well in her daily activities, and she's made a decision to take a major step to improve her life.

Liz will be going to Philadelphia tomorrow to prepare for major brain surgery.  On Tuesday morning she'll be going into the University of PA medical center for her operation.  This will be a 10 hour procedure, 8 of which she'll be awake.  

They'll be implanting a nerve stimulator into her brain in order to alleviate her Parkinson's symptoms.  It will take several months for it to reach its full capacity, but the successfully implanted device has been known to reduce the symptoms of her disease by up to 50%.  

She'll be in the hospital recovering for several days and in rehab for an undetermined time thereafter.  I'll be in touch with Liz's family about her progress and I'll post here.

Please - Join in our circle of prayer for Liz.  Her spirits are optimistic, and she sends her love to all of Passions in Poetry.  Liz says she'll appreciate all of the prayers and loving support she can get.



ps - Liz is a beautiful lady with an amazing talent.  If you're not familiar with her work, readsome of it here - http://poetrybyelizabeth.com

Ah, dear Liz! I don't know whether to feel happy or sad. I'm so sad for everything you have  gone through for so long and the surgery you will have to go through but I'm happy that the end of the road may be coming for such a horrible affliction. You are one of the kindest, nicest and gentlest persons I have ever met and my prayers will be with you every step of the way. Good luck, meter maid

Lady Santos...

I know of several people who have undergone this procedure...and it was done well over ten years ago, and they have all been quite successful. I know you will see some dramatic results because research has forged on with this disease, and many new procedures have come forth because of that research.

You are most definitely in my prayers.

Love,

K

Oh dear, glad I came by to catch this news.

How brave you are Liz, in undertaking this operation and I truly hope with my whole heart that the outcome will be much better than expected. You deserve it dear friend.

I'll be thinking of you all day tomorrow and all the days after. The circle of loving friends is closing ranks and you know how powerfull we can be.
Looking forward to see your first post again and I'm sending loads of healing Dutch hugs and knuffels your way.

I'll never forget the warm and loving care you gave me when I stayed in your home eight years ago. Keep well my dear friend.

Love, Titia

Thanks, Mysteria, for the heads-up, and Nan for the post.  How sorry I am that I'd been unaware of your ailment, Liz, and how happy I am this opportunity is available for you.  May all our Pipster prayers be pleasing to our Maker and uplifting to you.  God knows you and these blue pages are part and parcel, Liz.

May this be a tremendous, successful blessing for you!

Hugs,
Rae
