Hans Bohlken,
5/5/97: I want to let everyone know that Bette is in hospital sinceApril 14 with a bad viral meningitis. The days before that she already had sufferedwith an enormous headache and pains all over her neck and in her eyes. We went tothe hospital for a lumbar puncture and she had to stay there immediately in a dark room. After three weeks, she is still in bed and serious ill. The pain can be taken away by morphine, and her immune system has to do the rest of the healing. Also the M.S. pains are stronger now.Bette asked me this morning to thank you all for your support over the last weeks,each in their own way: cards, letters, phone calls at our address.Among all the "get well" letters and cards that Bette received was a special one fromChristoph and Verenali Arnold (her own cousins). After the usual "we send our love,"they began a diatribe about "all the sins on her conscience." They accuse her of writing her book, Torches Extinguished, only to defend her father's adultery. Theyclaim that it is full of "lies and slander," as well as her letters in KIT. Then theyreminded us that when they visited a few years ago, they offered her "the completeforgiveness of the church for the adultery and fornication she had committed in her youth, but she rejected it."It seems that Christoph's type of love still "cuts like a knife" as he once described it inhis youth, so at least he remains consistent. But Christoph has to live his own life, withhis own sins and lies.The neurologist thinks that Bette has to stay another two or three weeks in hospitaland then recover for many weeks at home with rest, rest -- and more rest. Last nightshe had a bad nightmare about black crows wearing kerchiefs that wanted to peck her to death. What does this dream mean? Is there anyone who has an answer for me?
