One of the times when I went to visit her, when she was still on morphine drip, she told me she kept seeing Barney (my dog) in her room. Once, after she stopped talking for a bit, when she started again, she told me that she had just been giving surveys to dogs. She was using the button that delivers the morphine drip to record the dogs'answers; once for 'no', twice for 'yes'.
A few minutes later she told me Barney was just there again and told her 5 22. She said she didn't know what it meant, but she knew it wasn't 5:22 like the time.
Today is May 22nd (5-22). I am wondering if something is going to happen today.
Meryl agreed to a feeding tube and was able to leave the hospital. She finished up her chemo and radiation last month and is doing much better. She is eating again and feeling great.
