Monday Roundup

Ken had the bronchoscopy Sunday and preliminary results came back today that didn't show anything conclusive (surprise, surprise) but they will have the final results in the next couple days. He was moved out of ICU this morning into a regular room and was on oxygen, a broad spectrum IV antibiotics, the usual hydration, TPN (IV nutrition), potassium magnesium, etc. all day. However, he was having trouble tonight so they did a bunch of tests as well as a chest X-Ray and have decided to move him back up to ICU. His potassium is extremely low and they can administer that faster in critical care so he's moving back shortly.

Hang in there Ken! Someone will figure you out soon. :) As always you are in my thoughts and prayers.

We are good friends of Sheila and Todd. In fact have gone through grade school, junior high, high school, marriages, kids, etc., with them. We check the blog often, Ken, and always hold you and the family in our prayers. Keep fighting the fight. Kristi, thank you so much for keeping this blog going so we can keep up to date :-)

I will try this again. I sent a message from Mexico yesterday and it didn't go. Maybe it's on Mexican time. I check the blog everyday. I stopped by the Catholic church and sent a prayer your way. Love to you and your family.
I've seen many senoritas here but not the ones from the lunch room. We will raise a cerveza for you. Maybe a few.
