quote:She (Pele) is in the Intensive Care unit at Strong Memorial Hospital in
Rochester. This past Wednesday she had an accident during a performance and is
fighting off some chemical pneumonia. The doctors say that she will recover
fine but it will take a few days before her lungs are well enough so that she
can breath on her own. They figure that she will be in the hospital for another
week.
She wanted me to be sure to tell all of you that she is doing well but very
thirsty and can't wait to eat some fruit.
Shocked to here this news .

Wishing Pele a speedy recovery and lots of fresh fruit. Our thoughts are with you.

Much love

Malcolm, Cherry and 7

Posted:I'm going on holiday soon. Who'll miss me I wonder.....

I could do with a hug. Yes. now you come to mention it. But prospective hugees must fit certain criteria your name must sound exactly like Rosalind Vitkovitchyou must be the most beautiful creature i have ever laid eyes uponi must love you with all my heart (and have previously presented you with a Schlepp)you must look so sexy spinning poi that no 4 moves can be completed, in succesion, in my presence without interuption due you unscheduled kissing breakIf you feel you fit these criteria then queue up but be warned; if you pass thse simple tests i'm your's for ever and ever. With no respite.

Posted:Get well soon Pele. I hope you have a good and speedy recovery. It's also good to see how much we look out for each other here.

Like a heap of the rest of us have said it's dangerouse to breathe and no matter how many times you do it there's still a chance of it back fireing on you. Perhaps there's a lesson to be learned here.

Get well Pele!

Posted:Was very sad to hear about Pele. Although I dont know her personally, I have found her input her on H.O.P very inspiring and I know she will be sadly missed while she is recovering. It was beautiful to read all the msgs on here to Pele and I am sure they will have helped her knowing there are so many people who are sending their thoughts and love at this difficult time.
Love, hugs and healing vibes sent to you and your family

I came across this on a Pagan site and thought u might like it

TO PELE

Flame of Pele burning bright
Ignite in me your fire tonight.
Forge a space within my soul
Where power and inspiration flow.

And from that source a light divine
Shall illumine every breathe of mine.
Your radiating power will find
My life-force with your fire entwined

Posted:Uh, Pele i'm really hope you get to feel better. Uh here is a short poem that helped me get through my trauma when my PAPA died. I don't know who wrote it, but my mother told it to me when i was 7. It goes:
Open your eyes,see all the love in me, I got enough for ever. Don't be afraid, take all you need and we'll be strong together.....
if any body knows who wrote this write me back.
Sincerly,

Posted:Update from Mark
quote:Lynne is doing better. She is still in the ICU but on a smaller ventilator. It
is through her trachea right now but she initiates all the breathing. She's
hoping to be off of the ventilator in 2 weeks from now and out of the hospital
in 4. I'm not sure how realistic those goals are, but at least she's in good
spirits.
She is awake and off of the sedations. She only is on anti-biotics as far as I
know.

Posted:I'm sorry for not updating all of you more often. I've been trying to keep up on her contacts but she knows a lot of people.

I went to visit her about an hour after I emailed Malcolm the above update.
She is now off the ventilator and on just oxygen. We hope she'll be out of the ICU early next week. She is still using the trachea hole to breath through as it allows them to better deal with any fluids that develop.
She is on anti-biotics, her fever is down. She has a tube going through her back into her lung (she says that one hurts) that is supposed to help drain fluid. She has physical therapy work for her legs and arms. She can stand for a little bit now on her own, but it's tiring. She hadn't stood for about 3 weeks before attempting to. She also is able to shower every other day now, before she was sponge bathed.

We have hopes for a few more weeks and I'll do my best to keep you all posted. I'm glad Malcolm emailed me and asked. I hope he doesn't think he's being a pest as he's not. It's very nice to know that you're all thinking of her and I pass this along when I visit.

Posted:This is from Pele herself:

quote:
Dear Home of Poi

First of all, thank you. The get well thread was printed for me and the outpouring of love has really touched me. Thanks to those who took the time to send cards, I have received many here at the hopital and as I grow stronger I enjoy them more.

The update... my injury was classified as life threatening. I've spent 4 weeks in intensive care unit. I don't remember 2 weeks at all. I am expected to spend a couple weeks down here in the regular ward before I am released. By the time I get out it will be almost 2 months in the hospital! I hate every moment!

Anyway, as Prome said, I did a fire breath and inhaled lamp oil when the wind shifted. The effects were instant though. Coughing and vomitting, I knew I was in trouble but I never expected this!

I have a traech collar. A hole in my throat with a tube to help me breathe and a valve to help me speak. I got to eat for the first time yesterday. Jello only. I also get juice now, which is great after weeks of nothing.

I am getting stronger and expect to be back bugging all of you in a few weeks myself! Many thanks and much love!

Pele
