A Favour To Ask

I have a favour to ask, of my London, Ontario readers.

You might remember me telling of Milrea, ( pronounced Mill Ray) a delightful, older lady that joined our Meaford knit group this fall.

She took the taupe cabled sweater the day I had my 'great giveaway'.
Sporting her 'new' sweater, she gives a hug to Pat of the personal lunacy 'Loon Sweater'.

A few weeks back, Milrea became ill and was in great pain - too much pain to even come to knit group. We have learned that she has been diagnosed with bone cancer. Perhaps a spreading of the breast cancer she suffered a few years ago.

Milrea is currently in London at Thameswood Lodge taking radiation therapy. She has been there about a week and will be there at least another week, perhaps two. 'IF' you are so inclined, and 'IF' you have the time, it would be wonderful if you could visit Milrea.

She was on morphine before she left for London, and if she is still on it, a short visit would be best, I'm sure. I don't know what time of day her treatment is, so a phone call to Thameswood before you go would probably be a good idea.

Her full name is Milrea Gilchrist and she is in room 28 at Thameswood Lodge at 401 Nelson St, in London.

Oh poor Milrea. I wish I could help, but this is an awful time of year for finding spare time. I hope someone else can make it in to see her.
