For Friends and Family

I was asked to make a blog for family and friends of Ilene.  I am happy to do this.  I will try and keep everyone updated with Ilene's progress.  Hopefully it will answer some questions.  Also feel free to share any experiences or information that you have here.


  1. I just got back from the UMC hospital. I was privileged to be able to go into Ilene's room and 'visit' with her. She squeezed my hand and I swear I saw a hint of a smile. It was kinda scary to go into the room, with all the tubes in her, and the heart monitor, etc. I made her a card. Her room is full of cards from her students, family, and friends. I said all I wanted for my birthday was for her to wake up, and make little ladybug cupcakes like she for my, maybe 4th or 5th birthday. It's hard to see someone you love so much in that much pain.
