Continually Improving

Ken is still improving! (insert round of applause... big round of applause!) Today he had his Hickman catheter (central line) removed because they felt it was possibly the original source of his infection and gave him a Picc line in his upper arm. That is working and he's doing well with it! If all goes well, he'll be able to begin the trial chemotherapy in two weeks! WHAT A MIRACLE!!

He's still in the hospital and they've been able to focus their efforts on specific antibiotics that will kill the pneumonia bacteria. THANK YOU for your prayers, we happily have my dad, Ken, Ken Bob, Mr. Waite, etc. because of the love, support, prayers and laughter of friends and family.

Kenny Waite! I can't help but think about a special evening in my life when a very scary masked man and a Mr. Peterson came in and kidnapped my fiance from our rehearsal dinner. The only way to get him back was to produce a bottle of whiskey. Little Kristi wanted to handcuff him to a pole buck naked downtown. Luckily you returned him and had a rather long talk in the hottub enjoying that bottle!

Love ya,

Hey Ken and family: Was so excited to hear of your improvement. You are always in our thoughts and prayers.
Keep up the good work. I think you are getting an A+.
I am sure we are LONG overdue for a pool party.
