This is Ann, Jake's mom. I just got off the phone with Paula.
She sounds good but very tired.
She went into the hospital Sunday night and she expects
to go home Thursday or Friday.
I asked if she would like calls
and she said yes.
The hospital is Lake Norman Regional Medica
l Center, Mooresville, NC.
The hospital number is 704-660-4000.
Her extension is 4233.
You can ask for Paula Maletestra.
I had to spell it and I was close so
they let me talk to her.
She said she can keep 4 dogs and she
needs homes for these little ones:
(An aside...I am having foot surgery on the 29th
and I won't be able to walk for at least two weeks
and then not drive for a while longer
so I won't be able to be too much help with physical stuff
but I can do coordinating, etc.)
