and at least the blood work remains very positive.

The hair loss was not complete, but it was pretty thorough, so at the request of my beloved no pictures for now.  

The main problem has been with tummy problems of various sort, along with a problem with a low potassium level.  All of that is readily addressable, and we have done what is necessary.

In the meantime, a minor achievement of sorts yesterday.  For the first time since before she went into the hospital, she drove, at first for about ten-fifteen minutes with me in the car, then she dropped me off and drove by herself for about 20 - never two far away.  Re-establishing a sense of independence is important.

At this point we feel free in leaving her alone for an hour or a bit more at a time, provided someone can respond back in ten minutes or less.  That enables me to run a few errands after I have taken the care-giver wherever she needs to go at the end of a the long day.

We remain on target for the possibility of her returning to her office on November 18.  Day +30 is November 15, and if things remain as they are, she will no longer need a care-giver.

We remain grateful for the support and prayers we have received and continue to receive.

Thanks from both of us.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
