Another update

Another update, this time from Harry MF Teasley:

Just talked with Maddy. I'm at the airport in Providence, going to Tampa for the weekend, and phoned her at Jefferson.

She's out of the ICU, but it sounds like things weren't all that great there for a while. She got a sort of bacterial infection, a proteus gram-negative infection if I got that right, which likely arose opportunistically since she couldn't keep her meds down at home.

She's weak and tired, and is without her laptop: she said she was fairly delirious when she figured out she needed to go back into the hospital, and left her laptop and cellphone charger at home (but apparently she has the cellphone charger now). Her friends were not able to find her laptop yet. It's got to be somewhere in her house, but she can't figure out where.

She said she was hallucinating while at home, and was delirious for a while, so I'm wondering that the laptop could be, well, anywhere in her house. I wish I could go look for it and get it to her. I'm guessing her friends visiting her right now are probably doing that very thing.

But apparently things are better, she's out of ICU, and in her old room. She sends her love, and tried to apologize for worrying us, which I scolded her for, that she shouldn't worry about us.
