Go For The Throat...

Hi Y'all,
Thanks for being patient and understanding. I haven't even given this blog a thought. And yet I know that there are some good friends here. People who care. People who pray for me and my family. People that are good and decent people. Helen, I'm glad that you got good news on Ken. I know it'll take time, but it will get better for him. I thank God for that. I appreciate all the kind words from Bucko, Carolyn, Indigo, Melanie, Guido, and everyone else that has stopped by here to check on me and my dopey little corner of the blogosphere. We're still battling with Lou. She had to have a tracheotomy done and that seems to have helped her with air exchange. But she still is terrified and gets antsy and easily agitated. She's just flat out scared. We try to calm her down, but most times it's to no avail... but she has been out of it most of the time since the trach was put in. She sleeps a lot more. Her heart seems to be a tad better. I think the family is doing a little better as a whole. This has kicked our butts to say the least. But like a timex, we take a lickin' and keep on tickin'... Thanks again for your prayers... They are deeply appreciated...

Mik, I hardly go on blogs at all anymore- but I have to tell myself to come back to yours to keep tabs on everyone. I am so sorry about Lou, I pray she will come through this OK- but yes, it's going to be long. I'll try and get a private e mail off to you within the next few days, but please know I'm always thinking and praying for you guys. ((()))s to you Mik!!!

You'll be grateful for small mercies, but it's a very tough patch you're going through. With you in thoughts.
