It's Shelly here… It’s May 10th..my first time at typing  the blog. I know that Kit has talked about the view from 223, but it is unbelievable and I am putting a photo of the view on the blog. ( a day when there was a rainbow)  We are so blessed to be in this room. It is a lot like the Iao valley view.  Tomorrow is Mother’s Day.. and I want to wish all you mothers Happy Mother’s day .

I want to thank all of you for blessing me to the max…. by letting me be here with Kit . I do not worry about anything .. work.. bills …….because I have wonderful people who are handling all the little things that I would be worrying about.

Usually, I stay with Kit at the hospital until around 1 or 2 and then go home ( to Petulla’s condo) for the afternoon..shower, wash clothes, eat dinner, and maybe take a short nap and come back around 6:30- 7:00pm and then sleep in the same room as Kit.  This time with Kit is very special to me. I am very thankful to be able to be here.

Marla called and said that a lot of you walked today in honor of Kit.. in the Relay for Life.. I can’t wait to see the t-shirts.. and Kit is humbled by this whole “run for Kit”.

Okay… here is the update on Kit.

His red blood cells and platelets are way down.. so he is having both transfused right now. He has not gotten an infection yet… thank God!!! He has gotten his rash back, but it is not itching. He does not have a temperature either.. He is tired and he has to stay in this room, because his resistance is so low and he could pick up anything so easily.  

I think that you know that the bone marrow test is on Tues… not Monday…(Craig and Maria’s 60th  birthday). Please pray for us to see God’s miracle. NO BLAST(Cancer) CELLS!!!!!

I want to thank everyone again for blessing us so much. When the stuff comes in the mail to us.. it is so much fun opening the cards and letters and reading them to Kit. When we read the blog and your e-mails that you write, we often cry our way through them. We love all of you so much and we are so thankful for each one of you that are in our lives. Thank you for loving our family in this way that I could never have imagined.

 Love,shelly

Happy Mother's Day Shelly :)
great job doing the blog and the rainbow photo is beautiful, just like you :) always full of color & life even in the rain. I miss you but am so happy that you are able to be with Kit and that you are not worrying about anything. You & Kit have a restful night as our prayers cover you like a warm comforter. Praying continually against those blast cells and that they are disintegrated and that God replaces them with good healthy cells. Kit we are all waiting for the best brthday prestent for Craig & Maria, your renewed good health and total healing.
Hugs,

Dear Shelly,
Happy Mothers Day! You've been in my thoughts and I am glad you posted. I'm glad to read your post, your sweet spirit, your trust in God, you are always an encouragement to me. And at time like this when I am supposed to be encouraging you, still you encourage me. This Mothers Day I want you to know that you are one of the best Moms I know. Yes, you are. I remember living in your ohana and just seeing you and how you minister to your family. I also remember how you gave us the "nicest" crib for Gardner - that was so sweet.

Before this comments gets to be too long, I just want to give you a "cyberhug" and let you know that we love you. We are lifting up the whole Lauer family in prayers. That photo of the view from the window, with the rainbow, is a great reminder that God will never leave us or forsake us. He will never forsake you, Kit, and anyone else because HE LOVES YOU (and you know that already :) )

Love,
Liza
