I got an email from her on November 6.
Michelle said they were in the process of moving to a warmer climate for Eric.
She said she would hopefully be online by the end of the week.

Hopefully we'll here from them soon. You know how moving can
be such a pain.

Hugs and positive thoughts,

Jim

I do know moving is a nighmare, no matter the circumstances. Just worried about her. Glad she's making the move for Eric. Maybe she will join me here in FL where it is much to warm to suit me.

Hugs.......

Yes, Michele and Eric are in Florida and one of them (can't remember which) has a new profile picture of a foot in the water at the beach. From the sounds of things, Eric has taken a turn for the worse. They've both posted recently on the Esophageal cancer board. I'm sure Michele will appreciate you asking about her.

They are indeed in Florida. I didn't know if
Michelle wanted that shared from her email but it's
public knowledge now.

I found this post from Eric on 11/12.

Thank you so much for the concern. Rita is right. Eric is having a few more issues. The trip here was VERY hard on him and he began to retain water in his legs and abdomen. He also had a "white" bowel movement (which 'could' mean liver problems). Though the bm returned to normal, the swelling continued. I now have to measure his girth daily. The doc saw him today and thinks it could, or could not be the liver. He gave him some new meds and will check on him in a couple of days to make sure the condition is improving. Love the Hospice group here already. The doc comes to us! They delivered his hospital bed and meds today. We never have to go get his meds again as they come to the door! We did make it to the beach yesterday and he had a wonderful day! I have missed a lot of posts of late and will try to catch up soon. Still have a lot of unpacking to do and getting settled in. It is nice to set him up in his bed and let him lurk around online while I work. Very peaceful time right now.

Love to all!
-Michelle

Welcome to Florida!

Hope Eric gets better soon with the new meds.
Glad you're back and thank you both for being such an inspiration.
