Can't find the update I posted a few days ago! So, here is the latest.

Spoke to Robbin yesterday and she said if anyone wants to send letters or cards, she would love it. She is bored, but they graduated her to walk without a cane, but only in the facility.

She still does not have Sunny, her service dog. I suggested she call legal aid, ACLU, or the local TV stations for them to investigate the issue of discrimination as they allow some service dogs in the facility, but not Sunny. I found some good info on the internet showing how the service dogs fall under the protection of the American's With Disabilities Act (ADA), a federal law. She said she has no energy to fight…

So, if you want to send Turtle a letter or card:

Robbin McManus
Whitman Health and Rehab
1150 W Fairview
Colfax, WA 99111 RM 103

Thanks Suzie for your update on Robbin—you are much more knowedgeable in this computer stuff than I—now with her address, I can DO something to help our friend!! Now I can also send her a pic of my rescue dog, don't know how to send it via PC, so this will work out better—-we had compared notes earlier on our wonderful dogs! Thanks, Sweetie Sue! Pat Roth

Pat, after spending about 20 minutes to find the Turtle threads, I posted the link on all of them, in case some of you find one and others one of the other discussions. So frustrating!

Thanks for the update. I have sent her bunches of e-cards, and will resume. I use her e-mail address.

Jim, she said she didn't have her computer hooked up…since surgery and until she decides where she will stay.

I was frustrated in not being able to find that post either.

Mays, Robbin spells it with 2 b's.

She is going to be so happy to be getting cards or letters from her friends. Bless all of you as well.

Thanks for the update, receiving cards and letters should do so much to bring joy and happiness to Robin (Turtle), letting her know that we are thinking of and missing her will let her know that she is missed and not forgotten, I will send out one as soon as possible.

You are a true friend with a kind, unselfish heart, thank you !

Thank you so much for keeping us updated on Robbin. I will get a card out
to her tonight.
I was looking for the other Turtle discussion but couldn't find it.
Thanks again suzie.
