Jan 4th. Oh Liza that was so sweet of you to hijack Kit's blog. Just thinking of your wedding makes me laugh. I will never forget that day...Everything was so well co-ordinated...so... planned ahead of time by you and your family. HOWEVER...Bradley failed to tell Marla and Me that we were in the wedding and suppose to being wearing a shade of PINK... and when someone came and told me at the last minute... when I was wearing some black small patterned shabby little dress that I was suppose to be walking down the isle... I could have died.. I don't think that I even had lipstick on etc...But that was a beautiful wedding with all the things in it ...Philippine tradition to the max... and you were so gorgeous that day.. with your hair up.... and your loving family all there to share the day.. Of course.. Bradley was so handsome in his barong...and Kit and Dickie too...wearing them too... makes me smile..What an honor to be asked to be in your wedding. I know that you had chosen McManus ' and us to be like godparents to you.... and I have always felt like such a failure to you guys, as god parents. I had big plans ... but just never carried them out...
Liza, thank you again for being such an encourager...
Now... about Kit...He is sleeping now... and he is getting another red blood cell transfusion right now. Last night he slept pretty good and he did not have a temperature.. that we knew of.. He is getting 4 different antibiotics and anti fungal medicines... almost around the clock. The pain medications make him constipated.... which is a problem... when you can't eat fresh fruit and vegetables when you are nutrapenic (weak immune system because of leukemia). He can't walk around in the hallway... because he has no white blood cells to fight infection..so... pray that things will start moving... ha..
We are just waiting now... for the infections to get nailed down..and for Kit's bone marrow to start producing his own white blood cells . He has to have a new IV put in... every 4 days, because he is not a candidate for a picc line because his immune system is so weak. The person is putting a new one in right now as I write.
Your prayers.. your comments... they are so uplifting to us. Some of you.. I don't know(but I feel close to you anyway) ... but Kit knows you .. I just cry when I read what you write because God is so good to us by blessing us with you all.. standing by our side.. while we are over here. Praying for us...begging God for a miracle... thank you.. so much.
