Some concerns for a Friday

10/14/05

Hi all,

Well, Fridays are supposed to be the day of the week everyone looks forward to, but Liz and Kaitlyn would probably disagree this week.

Kaitlyn started having some difficulties breathing last night and has continued doing so most of today. I wish I could give more details, but that's about all they could tell Liz and Brian. For now everyone's just sitting tight counting that Kaitlyn's a fighter and will make it through this like she's made it through so much already.

The doctors now say Liz's incision has become infected. Mild gore alert ahead for those with queasy stomachs. They purposely broke the wound open and Liz and Brian will have to pack it with sterile gauze 3-4 times a day. Luckily Brian's a firefigher/paramedic and hopefully used to this type of stuff, as I'm guessing Liz will not be jumping up and down volunteering to do this to herself. The infection doctor says they may have to do this for up to a month.

Still, another day is always a good thing. I hope everyone has a good weekend, I'll update as I hear more.

As a minor celebration, Liz will hit the 2,000th view of her blog shortly, I guess that's a good thing!

Thanks,

Gary

Oh Gosh! How much more can God dish out to you guys! Just tonight the girls voluntarily prayed for Liz and Baby Kaitlyn in their prayers! I am PRAYING God answers all of our prayers and sends miracles your way!

Hugs to you and MANY, MANY, BLESSINGS!

Liz and family,
You are amazing, all of you. God gives us what we can handle, and obviously, you are the cream of the crop because you have been given so much to handle right now. When you come through this time, you will be so strong! I read these posts and I already see how your family is wonderful and special and you are too. Please hang in there and trust that this too shall pass and you will be skiing again, and running again, and living life beyond today. You are going through so much, but you have it in you to pull through this and be stronger. Lots of love and well wishes for healing. - Colleen

Liz & Brian... just wanted you to know that yet another is thinking/praying for you and your girls. I can't even begin to imagine how hard all of this has been. Just reading it makes my heart break that you are being forced to go through it. Much love to you and your family.
