Hi Janice,

I am doing good thanks to the support of one wonderful husband.  My sister has been at the U of MN since 8/13 and she is feeling pretty well but her lung capacity is extrememly poor.  She has no reserve.

She is in isolation right now as her Neutrophils have bottomed out. A palliative Physician has joined her team now.  Hopefully they will come up with a better way to get her a good nights sleep.

Her hair had fallen out in tufts so on Friday we shaved her head.  She actually was pleased with the outcoume and no more hair all over her pillow.

She is still fighting a tough battle but she is hoping for surgery.  I am afraid she will never have any surgery but I support her spunk.  She is not ready to give up............bless her soul.  I love her so much.

Thanks for caring,

Kitt

I know from experience the priceless gift of my supportive Husband; I'm grateful you have the same. The fight you are all waging is exhausting, but the gift that you are all giving and receiving will be with you always.

I (we) can't be with you, but you have all of us pulling for you here on-line; we'll do our part to lift you with our prayers and healing thoughts.

big hugs,
Janice

Janice,

Thank you for the encouraging word, you bring tears to my eyes. My oldest sister died on Thanksgiving Day last year so I feel like I am so lucky to have this time with this sister.  There were only 3 of us. 

Love,
Kitt

Kitt,

my heart goes out to you and

your dear sister.  So  sad.

I will remember her in my prayers.

Some of our complaints are

nothing, compared to what she is

going through.  May God Bless her

and keep her comfortable.

Take care, 

Mary Love

Kitt,

You have been such an encouragement to people on this board and now it's your turn. God bless you as you stay by your sister's side through this trial. We are saying a pray for you all.
