So, let me make a few friendly suggestions for any of us who are eager (that's ALL of us!) to help Louise. Let's seek to be wise in our offer of help. What we want to do might not be what she needs. For example, if you want to see Louise, please call first and ask what would work for her schedule. It is best to visit when convenient for her. And, try to keep your visit short! Louise loves people, and she'll push on, but often needs to chill or nap. If you want to bring a meal, it is best to call her friend Candace Hazar, and schedule with her several days in advance. Candace’s phone number is 480-948-0555. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Louise often has out of town visitors (family and friends) who are cooking meals. Some nights, Kelsey wants to cook dinner as a way to support her mom. Meals are great, but three on one night is tough for 3 people to consume (remember, Louise is not eating real food --boo hoo).
The good news is that each day we can do real tangible things for Louise: read and COMMENT on her blog, write her a card (she loves cute and funny cards), say a prayer, send a text. This might be enough. Louise is busy focusing on fighting this disease. Let's continue to do all we can to help.
