Carla and Barbara visited today:
Linda is looking better, and is sounding more coherent.
She is still occasionally talking in a depressed way ("I'll never get better"), but this will pass as she improves.
The liquid of her diarrhea seems to be slowing down, and is less colored. A good sign.
Pain is still a problem which the doctors are working on.
If her gut does not improve by the end of the week, they intend on changing the med approach.
Generally an optimistic visit.
