Darlings, Shad let me know this sad news last night. So very sorry that this is happening to dear Mel. She has always been a bright spot on the Forum and does not deserve this crap!

I had Mel's addy but seem to have lost it. Could someone PM me with ti so I can at least send a card along with my prayers.

OMG - the minute I saw the comments on FB I feared what you were talking about. Dear sweet Mel - you're right - she so does not deserve this. My heart is breaking.

I PM'ed Ruth Mel's address....and also mailed Mel a card. My heart is breaking for dear Mel...and also for Jen.

I think it would be good if we try and focus on giving Mel and Jen and Ritchie a collective Wordlies group hug that never ends.

Much love and hugs to you all,

No further news overnight, but this could take time. I know that Jen is trying to get her home for palliative care and hospice. I know that none of them will ask for anything - in the help line or otherwise so I am wondering what we can do for them if anything.

If anyone can come up with anything, let me know.

Meantime I am out attacking the garden to get rid of my aggressive tendencies. This may stop me from going out and finding the nearest f*ckw*t and beating him up. Yes I am angry. That little family do not deserve this on top of all else they have had to put up with

I just had an idea. We could possibly order groceries or prepared meals for them and have them delivered, especially when Mel is released to go home.

I like the idea of the meals however I am at a loss to recommend an option simply because Mel is sensitive to soy and spices and the like. She did enjoy the prepared foods at Trader Joe's, however they don't deliver nor do they have gift certificates according to their website.

The part that is so frustrating is that Mel took care of everyone ... always... and outside of Jen, can't think of a soul we can reach out to in order to help her from far away. Wouldn't even know how to contact - was it Willie??? - who would help her shopping.

I will keep thinking on it though... I do agree - no flowers. I'm sure she'd appreciate cards or nice pictures instead.

I've been trying to upload photos of my new princess! However the site doesn't seem to want me to upload anything today. I'll try facebook and see if that works.

We can get gift cards from TJs as I have done so before and sent them to Mellie. That is my recommendation.

I like Annie's idea also. However, we don't have a TJ's in our area. Didn't she use Walmart's as well?

Shad
Love the new princess.

Annie - I like the TJ's gift cards also as Mel was quite fond of the prepared meals and they didn't have ingredients which bothered her tummy and such. I didn't see gift cards offered online and since I'm hundreds of miles away from a TJ's would you be willing to collect, purchase and mail for us???

I think gift cards for meals is a great idea! Please let me know who is collecting and I'll send them a US$ money order.

Can we please just hold off for a bit until we hear from Jen that they are able to bring Mel home. The biggest expense at this time may well be the fuel used to get to hospital and back for Jen especially if she is not able to get her home.
If I haven't heard from Jen by say about Wednesday, I will start to make enquiries through the building and see if I or someone can actually ring her at a specific time. I did have Jens phone number but I seem to remember that Mel said it had been disconnected.
I know that we all want to help and to do as much as possible for them, but we need to sit back for a time and wait. We all send something now, then what are we to do if Mel decides she ain't going to go just yet.

The TJ idea is great thank you Annie. Just let's sit on it for a short time until we have a few facts.
