Last night was a good night , except that we were worried about Buddy. ( Buddy, Kit's younger brother was ran over by a truck on his bicyle yesterday on So. Kihei rd and taken by ambulance to the hospital, released and then later admitted because he feinted in the shower) We would pray, each time we woke up during the night that Buddy was sleeping soundly and that he did not have any brain damage. We called him at Maui Memorial this a.m., and Craig Englert answered his phone. Kit , Buddy and Craig talked for awhile and there was a lot of joking going on... which is a good sign. Buddy is being released today.. with a fractured fibula and he needs to take it easy. We are SO thankful that Buddy is okay.
Kit is in 2 football pools ..one with the Lauer Family and one with Pete Nichols... he is in first place in both... Kit is a very competitive person... even when he is extremely weak...sick .. and in pain... he is determined that I send his picks in for the week. For awhile , Buddy was in first place in the Lauer family pool, but a couple of weeks ago, Kit went ahead...This a.m, on the phone ,Kit was joking with Buddy about Buddy being so depressed about Kit taking the lead in the family football pool that he got in an accident and ambulanced to the hospital just to get some attention or something to that effect.. they are just 2 silly boys still.... ( and "Poop",( my neice) you are so right about how these two brothers love each other.)
Thank you for your prayers about good dreams etc... Kit was not troubled in the night, like the night before... and the best news is that he does not have to have any transfusions today. The platelets and red blood cells are holding... and the white blood cells went up a little and there were some neutraphils.. so.. that is good news.. If the counts continue going up.. that would be awesome... but we just have to wait and see how the days ahead go.
Kit has a very small appetite... but he did eat a little for dinner and breakfast.. He is down to 140 ... his skin is peeling everywhere and his hair is falling out on his head... but everywhere else...it is staying.. He wishes that he would have shaved down... arms and chest before coming in, because pulling off the tape from the Iv's etc..is very painful.
I am going to sign off for now... I read all the e-mails and blog comments to Kit..... they give him so much joy... thank you for loving us the way that you do.
