Mese: febbraio 2013


On December 1, 2012 I donated blood at St. John the Evangelist Church on Willliam Street in Pittston.  It was a double red cell donation.   This past Monday I tried to give another donation at O.L. Sorrows Church on Eighth Street in West Wyoming.  I wasn’t allowed because my last donation was too recent.  My mother has been in Geisinger Hospital in Wilkes~Barre for most of the time since early December.  She also spent a short time at John Heinz Rehabilitation Center , part of Allied Services, in Wilkes~Barre.   Geisinger is exceptional.  John Heinz is also very good.   She gets both physical therapy & occupational therapy.  She had a serious operation on the early morning of December 8.  Her recovery has been really slow & there have been all sorts of complications.   She was forced to spend Christmas Day in the John Heinz Center & her eightieth birthday at Geisinger.  Her birthday was the day of the nightmarishly nasty ice storm so she got no company.   We visit her as much as possible though & so do many other relatives.
