The following is from the Hospice Patients Alliance Newsletter November 23, 2003 written by Ron Panzer:
An Update on the Barbara Rourke situation in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Joe reports that Barbara is finally off oxygen (which was never explained anyway), is getting tube feedings and the plan is to have her come home to Candi and Joe tomorrow. A home health agency has been contacted to work with them to help coordinate and provide needed assistance. Barbara is very fortunate to have Joe and Candi; she probably would not be with us today without them!
[Thank God for this development. Let us watch and see if Holy Cross Hospital releases Barbara as planned.]
