From Mom's Journal - July 15, 1979 - Sunday (age 42)

"I came into Jewish (Hospital) at about 10:30 11:00 & was put to bed.

Developed pressure in chest that probably could have been relieved by a little TLC. Dr. L's comment was put her out until Tues & forget it.

I do not think it would hurt for some one around here to talk to a patient - it is almost as if we did not exist.

I don't think I would tell them I had a chest pain even if my heart was falling out of my chest.

My room is nice - I hope I have the same one when my surgery is over -

One of the nurses told me they may get veins from my arms - how much more can I be disfigured?"

*************************************************************

"All anyone does is sit around and say buck up it's going to be okay - don't worry it will come out okay - not one of them has to hurt like that."

*************************************************************

"Please keep my door closed so everyone will not hear my moans & groans."

*************************************************************

"The fear & loneliness are almost unbearable."

*************************************************************

"I hope Lucy comes to see Hal and I do hope Hal is not alone - "

*************************************************************

"Hal - you really will be married to the Bride of Frankenstein now"
