Subject: RE: Barry Finn in hospital
Justine, thanks so muhc for taking the time to let us know how things are. I echo the others, take care of yourself, too.

Also, you probably already know this, but I would say keep reading to him, talking to him, and play music for him, via Walkman or whatever. It all helps one in staying connected while so ill and/or unconscious. Hearing is one faculty which is always *on* so to speak and the words of love, etc. do register deep within.

We played Mozart on a cassette when my mom was very ill in ICU, many years ago. It was some of her favourite music. It helped her to focus on the uplifting music rather than the pain and fear of illness. Even when she was in and out of consciousness, she recognised the music. A loved one's voice is so reassuring, too.

Sending Love, Light and Thank-givings for a new and compatable liver and complete recovery for highest good of all concerned,

Kat & Rog
