Journal entry by Dennis Donnermeyer

Hi everyone,

Shari is continuing to improve every day at home.  She's been back in New Castle for nearly 48-hrs and each day has been better than the last. She's eating more and more, getting a ton of attention and love from Covey (Ali and Adam's new puppy) and really enjoying being out of the hospital.

She (and we, the family) are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support from all of you over the past few weeks. Thank you for your words of encouragement and positivity. Shari has read, or has been read, every single comment, 'well wish', 'tribute' and message submitted on the site. When she gets enough energy back she will get back to each of you personally.

Patients and caregivers love hearing from you; add a comment to show your support.
