On the evening of Wednesday Sept 6th Paulette went in for emergancy surgery. On Thursday morning she suffered a major shock due to an infection . This caused several major organs to shut down. She has regained use of two of these organs with medical assistance. She is being kept heavily sedated so her body can heal. She has made slow but definite progress but is still very ill and in the intensive care unit. At this time the best thing you can do for Paulette and our family is to keep her in your thoughts and prayers . Because of the level of her illness the family requests that you do not attempt to visit her at this time or call asking what you can do to help. Our focus needs to be 100% on Paulette. We are committed to updating this site regularly with her updates. Once she is out of ICU we will provide you with other ways you can help . As you may know Paulette is an extremely healthy and positive person and we believe she will pull through this.
