The LA Times Online version posted an article on Genetic Testing and Huntington’s Disease. Debbie’s brother and sister were interviewed for the article. http://articles.latimes.com/2011/apr/19/news/la-heb-family-huntingtons-genetic-testing-20110419
Debbie has gained a little bit of weight ( she needed to) in the last week and is doing well. She’s still at Mercy Folsom Hospital and we both appreciate all your prayers and support.
They increased her caloric intake and she is now eating double meals, about 4000 calories per day. She no longer is able to feed herself and the hospital staff has been wonderfully good. It takes about an hour for her to eat a meal and she usually says she is starving after the food is all gone. I have a stash of chocolate pudding, tapioca, and blueberry applesauce in her room so I can keep her satisfied.
She loves the chocolate banana smoothie drink from Starbucks. Whoever keeps putting Starbucks gift cards in pockets, car seat, books, etc. , THANK YOU!!!! I wouldn’t be able to provide this simple pleasure to Debbie without your help.
