The latest setback is that both of Kay's blood cultures from yesterday morning show that she has a bloodborne infection with a potentially serious gram negative rod shaped bacteria, with the usual "final ID and sensitivity" to follow. This means Kay will need several days of IV treatment. She is also going to get a blood transfusion today. Lots of specialists to see her. A more complete message to follow at bedtime tonight. I am racing to the office.

What a roller coaster. I am ending my day and starting my day with this blog. I wish I was there - I wish I could help like so many of your wonderful local friends. I am keeping this mantra in my head - Kay will beat this, Kay will beat this. xxoo

I'm sorry for this setback. Hang in there, Kay! (And Ed! And Brett! And Jean!)

Dearest Ed and Kay,
I will get our church families praying,NC to ME and as far West as CO. Thankful for the definitiveness of the diagnosis. Praying specifically for wisdom and unity in treatment, etc.

Much love,
