"Auction for Carol - Only One More Day!

I found this incredible story on Great Full Day last night.

Last June, Carol Decker had an emergency cesarean section after which she developed life-threatening hypotension from a septic pneumonia infection. During treatment that saved her life she had to have both legs below the knee and her left arm amputated. She is also blind. The already significant medical bills have added up and will continue to do so as she goes through rehabilitation. You can read more about Carol's story on her husband's blog.

To help defray these costs many donors have contributed to a silent auction. I just checked and there are still items with no bids yet. The auction ends tomorrow - and I'd love to send more people their way."

Please check out Kate´s blog for more details and a special giveaway.

Yes Jane, I have seen this film. How have you guess i love this movie ?
I like a lot of his director,, Guillaume Canet. He is very gifted and a good actor.
This adaptation i great. All actors are good especially, François Cluzet.
And the music is composed o "M", Mathieu Chedid. I love him. It's a totally improvisation.
Thank's Jane for this echange.

Thank you Jane! This is so sad. One never knows going in for what we think is a simple procedure can turn out not so good.

I know from my own experience, my road has been a long journey (and still). I can't even imagine what she is feeling and going through.

Again thanks Jane! xoxox
