Thumbs up Toast (Melba) is doing better!

I spoke with Toast this morning. She's doing better but still hurting pretty bad. And mentally she is hurting worse than physically.

She's up and moving around (I mean - who like's bedpans ?). She's still in ICU but they are limiting visitors right now. They are expecting to move her out of ICU this afternoon. We joked around a bit, so she still is the Toast we all know.

She has a statement: "Everybody - Wear your Damn Seatbelts!".

OK, don't everybody call at once....Ask for Patient Melba Davis in room Room 427. You will get a nurse first and they will determine if she can take the call.

Riverside Community Hospital
4445 Magnolia Ave
Riverside, CA 92501-4135
Phone: (909) 788-3000

Wait 24 hours on the flowers, as they won't let her have them in ICU.

How about we drive up and meet at the Hospital tomorrow morning at 10AM, when visiting hours start? I think it would help her so much to see our motley crew.

Count me in. I will bring some flowers as I am sure everyone else will. Lets try to make her room smell like a flower garden.

James, I just talked to a guy named Ron at the hospital, he told me that they might even move her to a Kaiser facility. They told me to call first before we come.

OK - just called the Hospital and she has been discharged/transferred.

Let me try to locate her. Stay tuned.

That sounds like Toast! I am very happy to hear they can't put up with her already.

Thanks so much James..

Toast was transferred to Kaiser today@ 5:30 - Not sure if it was Riverside or Fontana, but will find out and post it.

She is still really sore and will be for a while. It's hard for her to eat and breathe.

She also expressed amazement at the number of 914ers who cared about her - "She didn't realize she was that well liked"

Ronnie aka Pappy deeply thanks you all.

Ok- Here's the News -

Kaiser in Riverside - Off the 91 and La Sierra I believe.

She's in a normal room - Fiesty as ever - No restrictions, well probably some - no smokers (cars or ciggys).

Room 4307 - Flowers OK - Rasberry Sherbet is wonderful - Starbucks is great

Direct phone - (909) 353-3416

I'll be there. Not sure if I will drive the 914 or the 540. The advantage to the 540 is A/C.

Hurry back, we miss you, and I am sick of these one-way conversations with Cooler.

Saw her this morning with a few of the guys, Ron, Scott, James, Sean and then some. She seemed to be in high spirits and she plays HALO!

She's a tough bird that one.

I'm Free!!

Ok everybody, I have been released from the Asylum! It is 3:45 pm on Sunday. I will post again when I get a chance. Thank you everyone for all your help, support, and prayers! I believe it has helped tremendously.

And what an Amazing suprise to have the all the local 914ers arrive at my hospital room this morning at 10:00 am! That took away all pain and for once actually made me hurt from smiling and laughing so much. I cannot thank you all enough. That was what I needed to speed healing and bring me up in spirits.

Love and Miss you all!

Toast
