Alison Whittington, Marianne’s daughter, posted in Facebook Aug. 30:
“Thank you everyone for your loving and caring thoughts, words, prayers and comments. As most of you know, my mother, Marianne Pearce, has been fighting Covid and has been in the hospital (IMU) since 8/14. She certainly has good and bad days, but for the most part remains unchanged. I have been in contact with the doctors and nurses and they are doing their best. She has been on 15 liters of oxygen the entire time and is receiving various medications. And new treatments are discussed as they become available. The "COVID pneumonia" in her lungs is the issue. Physical and Pulmonary therapy teams are involved as well. This is going to be a long battle for her.
As you might imagine she is miserable being confined and very uncomfortable with vulnerability of her situation. It is a scary situation to be in. She remains exhausted most of the time. So while she is not improving as we would hope, she is no worse either. For now we hang onto that.
I know she has been reading everyone's comments, texts and messages and that it gives her much joy to know you all are thinking of her. She tries to respond but often is just too tired. Please know that she is reading them.”
Her family is planning a celebration of life for Marianne. As soon as we get details, we will publish them on the website.
