Sat. Jan 10th
Kit has not taken any pain medicine for about 30 hours now.... that is such an awesome thing... because his sinus pain is going away. Praise God!!!! He had a tough night tho.. not because of the pain, but because he wakes up every couple hours... completely soaked.. and freezing... so... we strip everything off... get new sheets , nightgown... and start over again. I remember this happened the last time when Kit was recovering from the chemo...antibiotics.. etc.. He was always so cold and the hospital has the AC blasting in here... and so... the night was miserable....it sure is amazing how a little sunshine coming through the window can change things.
The doctor that we love... Dr. "Tiger Woods" Duong came in with good news today. Kit's blood work was very good...platelets up...neutraphils up... He wants Kit to have two units of red blood cells today.....which takes about 5 hours... and then.. he wants to see if we can go home this afternoon or tomorrow. Kit is ecstatic!! He can't wait to get to Larry and Charlotte's place... to open their storm blinds and look out on the whole Waikiki beach... their condo..on the 12 th floor.. has the most spectacular view in the world. It won't be cold there....and to stand there and watch all the action in the water is invigorating.. to the far left .. there are people surfing...then.. the outrigger canoes.. are going out and in.. in the am and pm. then.. there are the stand up paddlers, the snorkelers... swimmers.. then there are people sailing boats past them.. and then.. way out there are the big ships... it is so exciting to sit and look out over God's creation..Oahu is such a beautiful island... We are so thankful to have friends like the Petullas... they are so generous.. When we got our first house 33 years ago..Charlotte stitched the most beautiful" Home Sweet Home" picture that has moved with us from house to house ,all these years...Years ago.. we taught and coached their kids, who are all grown up now with their own kids...We are not sure exactly when we are coming home.. but we will be there soon.
