An update: Ramya is at a hotel and looking into rooms for rent. She has also made connections with one of the neighbors who needs some yard work done, so it's a start. She's working on getting posters out in addition to the newspaper ad in the Times. I'm looking at my credit cards to see if I can come up with some money to help her get a room--she'll need a deposit. I wish I had a well paying job at this moment in time, but that's just not the case.
I am looking out for my heart health, don't worry. :)
