Hollis Update:

Yesterday Hollis received her first small dose of Ritalin, an agent used to try and wake her up. It might work in a few days or instantly or not at all. There is still some residual blood in her head from the accident, but when that clears, she should see a rapid improvement.
The medicine so far has seemed to make her miserable and she has a fever. Best of wishes to Hollis and this terrible state she is going through.
Thanks for checking in.


  1. She is going to pull through this; I remember (sort of) that I had a hell of a time coming out of the coma.

    Thanks for keeping us posted.

  2. I notice that you've made a point to note that no candles are allowed in Holli's room at the hospital. I just thought I'd mention that if someone really wants the effect of candles for ceremony, ambiance, mood, whatever, you could try the flameless, battery operated candles that use a flickering led light. They are very safe and quite realistic, giving the warm, flickering glow of a candle. Some of them are actually embedded in real wax, and are scented. I know its not the real thing, but it might be a good work-around, in case this is important to anyone.
