My sweet Kitt,

I knew something was going pear shaped.  You know how much I love you and care for you and your family. I won't say anything silly like "take some time for you" as I know it won't happen turn

Stay in the moment (you taught me that) and know I miss you. Kitt you are our HW backbone. Talk to you when I can

Love,

megs

Kitt,

I wish I did not know what port-a-cath and interventional radiology and paracentesis meant by I do and I am so sorry your sister is having to go thru these things.  Please know that you and your family are in my prayers and I too pray that to God to give the doctors the knowledge and compassion they need to heal your sister.

To all my family here on HW,

Thank you and I am home for now.  My sister has pneumonia now and it seems we are going in circles..............we have been told that the earliest she could have the surgery will be December. 

Prayers are what help the most.  I am running on little sleep and I realize my age after only getting 2 hours sleep on Wednesday  and 3 hours on Thursday.

For now we seem a little better..............took 2 1/2 litters of fulid off her abdomen.  She has fluid aroung her lungs but that was not dealt with at this time.

So know when I go MIA, I have had to leave quickly as it takes me 35 minutes to drive to the U of M. I would never abandon you here.

You are my family.  You understand.

Bless you all,

Kitt

Kitt,
 
I'm sorry that your sister is having to go through all of this, my prayers are always with her, as well as you.  Of course we all understand that you need to be with your sister now, so don't give being mia a second thought.  Please try and find a little time for yourself and get some rest.  I don't want you to run yourself down so much.  I know it's easier said than done, but just try.  Know that both you and your sister are always in my thoughts and prayers.

I am back at hospital and have been here since 11:00 AM on the 14th.  My sister is confused and disoriented, having problems breathing so it was another night  of sleeping in recliner. I feel so bad for her.

Please know I will be on as much as I can.  I woke up at 4:30 AM and thought nows my chance to use computer.  It is really for patient's use but nobody was on so Here I am!
Well now you know where I am idea
 
Love ya all
Kitt

Kitt for heaven's sake... the last thing you should be worrying about is us. You have been here for this family and have held us up through so many things... It is time for this family to hold YOU up for a change.
My heart is with you...my thoughts are with you... my prayers are with you.
Dear, dear Kitt... if you only knew the love and the prayers that are coming your way.
You are so dear to us...
Please try to take care of yourself as much as you possibly can.

Good Morning from the University of MN Hospital,

My sister has become more coherent, however has decided the doctors here are lying to her.  shocked Also she thinks we are in a hidden room but somehow they keep finding us. We are in a isolation room. turn

Her attending physician who would also do the surgery will be meeting with my niece and I as we have many questions.

I am hoping to go home today as my hubby felt like "crap" yesterday. I need to spend sometime with him to make sure he is ok.

I will be online when I can.............................thank you all for your support.

Hugs
Kitt
