To Leah’s readers, friends, family, from Leah and via Joe (her husband):
I won’t have a computer or my phone (so no twitter) at the inpatient facility I’m going into, but know that I’m getting help.
Thank you to all of you for all your kind comments, twitters, direct messages and texts.
I’ll have visiting hours with Leah in the late evenings and will be able to pass messages to and from her. Thank you all for your kind support. It really means a lot to Leah, and to me.
UPDATE Saturday August, 2010: I went and visited her at the hospital yesterday evening. It’s about an hour away from where we live now — and it’s a great facility, fairly new and also clean. She’s writing, journaling, and engaging with treatment. Visiting hours are limited to an hour a day weekdays (2 hours on weekends), but it was wonderful to get to see her. I printed out your comments and tweets and some of her email for her and passed them along. I think this decision, to go into the hospital, while very hard, and not necessarily cheap, was 100% the right one. I am relieved, and I think Leah is relieved too. I’m overwhelmed at the outpouring of support. There’s hope out there, for Leah and for all who are struggling.
