     Has it really been going on this long? I have been severely remiss
     keeping you, our friends, informed.
     Ulaghan's funeral was May 28. His wake was June 6. June 9 I took
     into the ER, fearing an aneurysm but expecting a low blood sugar
     That's what it was, but by the time I got her there she was in
     arrest, because her potassium levels were through the roof. She was
     intubated twice, finally took her off on the 16th. After two weeks
     of the
     doctors and insurance dithering, they moved her to a
     place July 2. By this time we knew her skin lesions were
     Because of covid restrictions, we could only talk to her through a
     window over a phone. An outdoor window. In Tulsa in July. She had a
     who had experience with calciphylaxis patients before, who told her
     she was
     getting better, according to Keigan. I don't know whether she was
     lying to
     her, or Keigan was lying to me. Either way I'm sure it was with the
     best of
     intentions, to keep spirits up. But I couldn't see the truth through
     damn window.
     She was transferred back to the hospital Monday. Her wounds in her
     have spread, are badly infected, and have eaten away most of her
     left calf
     and a good part of her right. They are talking about amputating both
     them above the knee, possibly as early as today. Her arms also have
     in them, but they are smaller. They are badly swollen and bruised,
     and are
     leaking clear liquid. But the surgeons weren't talking about taking
     off when we spoke to them last night. They say she can learn to walk
     with prosthetics. Privately, I can't help but feel like that is just
     another lie to keep spirits up.
     I don't know how today is going to go. I don't know what the future
     will be
     like. But it's coming, like it or not.
