Those plants do look like they should make a fast recovery...I hope the same for Phillip!

Hi y'all -
Not great news. I received a call from the hospital at 4:00 this morning to tell me that they had moved Phillip to the ICU. His condition was deteriorating and he was having more trouble getting oxygen, and starting to run a high fever again. I haven't been able to reach the ICU nurse's station yet, but when I do, I'll post an update. Please keep him in your thoughts. This is a little scary.
Sorry I missed this thread, Maura. Must be during the fortnight I was in Singapore to visit my second son and family and to see the 20 WOC. Your orchids have responded very well to your care. Congrats. So sorry to hear about Phillip and hope that he is getting better. He'll be in my thoughts and prayers. Keep us updated.
When I use moss to revive plants, I use a plastic vanda basket as the container for maximum air flow. I'm not great with moss, either but that works for me.
Sorry to hear your other half is so ill. Best wishes for his speedy recovery.

Please keep us updated on Phillip's recovery, Maura. I agree with the others here about your orchids - they look like they will recover well with your care. I have seen plants in much worse shape turn out fine. The thick p-bulbs and healthy leaves will go a long way in helping these orchids return to their former health.
My thoughts and prayers are with Phillip. Please update when you are able.
My thoughts are with you (orchids) and your husband.
When you win again next year, and you will , just make sure someone else takes the photo.
She will get hers eventually, so don't try to take revenge. I have always thought it best "not to lower yourself to that persons level ".
P.S. Keep your chin up, your pics show some good looking plants there.
As everyone has expressed. I'd like to add my sincere best wishes for your husbands speedy recovery. Having been a Respiratory Therapist for 30 yrs. I know about COPD and pneumonia. They can work some serious magic today as compared to when I started in 1972. I look forward to you letting us know he's back home and feeling more like himself.
Also, I may have missed the start of your orchid saga, but how did this person get her hands on your collection to begin with?
All the best,
Please know I'm thinking of you both.
