Hi, David and Elissa Kaplan (Jeff's parents) here. Jeff has set us up as co-authors, so we can pitch in with the administration of Laurie's CaringBridge site. You can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 203-321-0089.
Laurie is having a good week. Hospice continues to provide good support. Since Jeff’s last update, Laurie has transitioned from a sub-cutaneous "patient controlled anesthesia" device (PCA) to a pain medication “patch,” which is working better while allowing unrestricted mobility. Laurie is out and about. She has been cautiously taking some Yoga classes, attending choir rehearsals, and clothes shopping with Arianna. Laurie will perform with her choir in May. Stay tuned for details.
All of us are grateful for the overwhelming outpouring of good wishes and support in response to the family news email update on Laurie.
