Show some compassion…
please! No one was happier than I when our former governor, George Ryan was convicted of fraud and several other charges a few years ago. He was sentenced to 6 & 1/2 years in prison which he is serving at Terre Haute Indiana. He has now served 3 years of his sentence. His wife is gravely ill with cancer and is in her final days. Ryan’s attorney’s are fighting to have him released during the daytime hours so that he can be at her bedside. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/05/lura-lynn-ryan-in-intensi_n_805071.html Having watched my husband die of cancer and several other family members, I can find it in my heart to allow him to be with his wife in her final days. Please show some compassion for Mrs. Ryan, he can finish out his term after her death.
I am waiting for my daughter to come and pick me up. I am going to see my doctor this morning. It is snowing some so I hope there are no pileups on the roads. Update later.
UPDATE: I am back from the doctor where I had 6 X-Rays taken of my back and hip. I will get the results from them on Monday or Tuesday. I also have a prescription for some pain meds which I will fill. My BP was excellent, 112/54 and I hadn’t gained any weight. Those two things are always good to know.
I am still in quite a lot of pain so I am going to visit some of you and then get off of this computer and rest for awhile. I got hardly any sleep last night.
