2 Weeks

Today marks 2 weeks at the hospital for Ken. He's still showing very little improvement and has all of his doctors puzzled but it just wouldn't be Ken if he wasn't puzzling the doctors! His GI doctor is waiting for more test results to come back from the scope they did last week to get to the bottom of the diarrhea. They've also called an infectious disease doctor to come in and see what he can figure out. He received chemotherapy yesterday and will get another dose on Sunday... so far, that hasn't bothered him.

We sure love our little trouble maker and so does every nurse on the 9th floor of the hospital! He's become quite popular there - most nurses try to beat the others to request him to be on their rounds.

We're going to break him out of jail on Saturday to attend his mother's funeral service. I want to thank everyone for their prayers, flowers, cards and support through this difficult week. It means a lot to all of us. I'm sorry to those who have not gotten their shirts yet, I've passed them on to someone else who can get them sent out in my absence.

We were very sorry to hear about Ken's mom passing away, I never had the chance to meet her, but my husband is good friends of Ken and he said she was a really nice person. We have been praying for a speedy recovery for Ken. Our thoughts are with you and your family in this time of sorrow. Chuck and Debbie Roman
