Woof. Kev, I’ll see you soon. My fur is getting so long I almost look like my old self again. Woof, Booker (PS — Mom and I watched the last 30 minutes of UNDERDOG — it reminded me of myself and you, ’cause you’re a SUPER HERO)

Hey Kev! Hang tough, guy, sounds like the road is pretty rough, but like the tortoise, there is forward progress. I see your sister at school and think of you often. I’ll be by to visit with you and your folks Friday and hopefully, that’s O.K. with you. Take good care and know we are thinking of you, positive thoughts, and hoping you’re staying strong. See you soon, Deb and boyz

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” somebody said. It sounds like the journey to wholeness has begun. Reg and Janice will continue to keep you all in our prayers.

Kevin, we’re so thrilled to learn about your progress!
*Yay* unobstructed barium flow!
*Boo* Phlebitis –my mom got that back in August. Treatable, but probably not what you want to deal with just now.
Thanks for keeping us posted on caringbridge!

Hi Kevin and all of the gang!
I’m so happy to hear the news! The surgery is healing and your body is on its way to healing. I’m sorry for the steps that feel like their going backwards. But next year you’ll be thinking this was all worth it! So hang in there buddy! We’re praying for you!

What a courageous young man you have. It is wonderful that in all that he is going through that he smiles. He knows it gives his family encouragement and gives you that light you need. You are an amazing family and your bond is inspring. Thank you for sharing your story and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hey, Kevin. Talked to your Mom and we’re all glad to hear that things have started working. Hopefully with that new PIC line, you’ll be home very soon.
I know how much you’ll miss that hospital, but hey, that’s just part of the deal. Good luck as things hopefully keep getting better and easier. Aaron, Lex and I are thining about you and wishing you the best.

It sounds like you may have a future career in roller coaster design…I’m not sure about the name, (No one will be able to spell or pronounce it) but it sure has lots of up’s and downs
I hope you can keep thinking of the good things that are happening to to you to help you through the tough stuff. I’m sure glad to hear that there is good news.
Love, Uncle Rob
