The Flying Elephant is in the hospital.

Dear Readers— Teri was taken to the emergency room last night with a fever and possible pneumonia. She says to tell you her weekly blog post will be delayed, and she asks for your prayers. Daughter Emily is keeping Facebook updated; will post news here, as well.

Update 4/15/12 at 11:55 a.m.— Teri had a CT scan to determine if the fluid on her lungs is cancerous, pneumonia, or a reaction to the immunotherapy. Will post results when they come in.

Update 4/15/12 at 8:35 p.m.— (repost from Facebook) Thank you all for the continued prayers and good thoughts sent our way! We are very fortunate to have people in our lives who are so willing to help. Mom had (a lot! of) fluid drained from her lungs this morning, and she feels much much better now. The fluid was sent to pathology to find out what exactly it is. She is exhausted, so she is resting, and the doctors think she should be able to be released tomorrow. Thanks, again, y’all! Lots of love, Emily



  1. I hope you are back home and feeling much improved very soon.

  2. Teri, my love and prayers are with you. Speedy recovery!

  3. Wishing the best for you, dear Teri, and sending up a prayer.
    Love, BJ
