Mikey and Shae arrived back on Maui yesterday ... and it sure is good to have them home.
Kit went in to Kaiser to have his blood tested in the a.m. We still have not heard back from the doctor , but Kit seems like he is getting stronger and healthier to me.
On Tues., afternoon , the Hospice people came to assess Kit. The doctor on Oahu told us that Hospice could be a good support to us on Maui, so.. we called them and I am so glad that we did. The nurse helped make suggestions on the pain medicines..and last night... was a much better night because of the new medicines. Kit still wakes up frequently, and has to change clothes and sheets because of the night sweats, but there was only one time last night that the pain was really uncomfortable.... a big improvement for other nights. Kit is eating really well.. he has an appetite..and he must be gaining weight... although we don't have a scale , so I can not confirm that.
Now that I am home , with the kids here and all the things to do in my life , my attachment to the Blog is not the same.. I feel badly, because "the Blog" ( your postings) helped me get through those days at Kaiser..and I feel a little disloyal to you these past few days...because I have not been good about writing... I really want to emphasize how much your writings helped me and Kit. I want to thank you again for taking the time to write e-mails, write posts, sent cards etc... it made a huge difference in our days at Kaiser. I know that some of you did not write, but you were praying and even fasting for us... thank you so much. We could not have more wonderful friends and family in the whole world than YOU!!!! Love, Shelly and kit
