Howdie from Arvada. May we add a frame or two to your movie? One “close-up” of love, and a “wide angle” of all your courage, Kevin, supported by the courage of your family and friends; and our highest “meta-view” shot with a long lense for THE best of all conditions each day… for you to feel better and better.
As for us, we are wrapped up in school and activities. Ben just passed his yellow belt test in To Shin Do Martial Arts, and he is immersed in an intense Spanish language class this year; Rebecca is looking forward to Homecoming Dance, is swamped with homework and is workin’ me hard for decent “wheels” of her own come January when she gets her driver’s license. I am still working 6 days per week at the hospital and spend fridays lettin’ off steam in my West African dance class.
That’s our short film for the month. We are angling for you Kevin. All our hugs coming attcha!

Hi Kevin and Crew!
Seasons of life can be quite challenging can’t they? Well I believe this season for you is nearer the end than the beginning. We pray for you every night and I know He has heard our prayers and that you are in the palm of His hand. He’s going to hold you through the whole thing! Hang in there buddy!
God bless you all!

Hang in there gang! You are all fighting a great fight, and you can do it–ONE BREATH AT A TIME.
For what it is worth, I created a website about HOPE when I was sick for 2-1/2 years. It’s called “Fireflies of Hope” at www.firefliesofhope.com
You’re in our prayers.
Your neighbors up on Daybreaker

Hi Kevin: We’re sending our love and good thoughts. We all wish you lived closer so we could visit. But we talk about how you’re doing every day and check the site. We’re sending lots of HUGS. Hope you can feel those BIG HUGS.
Kathleen, Chris, Devin, Ryan, Shannon

Kev – We are finally home and able to send and receive E-Mail on a regular basis. Five and a half months away from home is long but not nearly as long as your problems. It must seem like an etirnity since you last felt good.
When you grow up and maybe get the opportunity to travel the country a motor home, it’s the greatest way to go. You get to ride up high looking out over all the other cars and see so much more. Also it’s great to not have to stay in motels and get to sleep in you own bed every night.
Sorry you weren’t feeling up to talking the other night. We sure understand. We’ll try again in a few days.
Grandpa Ted and Ev

Glad to hear that things are going a wee bit better for you. We;re sure thinking of you and are so sorry you have to go through all this junk. You’ll be up and about soon and back to your old activities in no time and this will all be behind you. You’re a good sport to endure so much with no complaints. An inspiration to so many people. Keep getting stronger each day!
Brent, Terry, Kelsey, Spencer and Katie Huffer

Rrrrrrffffff. . . .mom had parent/teacher conferences yesterday. She came home today, told me you asked about me, and now. . .she’s leaving again to go to Planning Commission meeting. I’m not really feeling the love. In fact, I’m starting to wonder if she truly understands my super hero status. She offered to put me in the stroller and take me to planning, but it could be late and there’s a cool show on Animal Planet that I want to watch. Plus, I’m way into the Wii Golf.
Anyway, do you have time to hang with me on days that she’s gone a long time? I think she wants to hang with your mom this weekend. If they do, will you hang out with me.
Frankly, hanging out with my mom is getting a little dull.

Hey Whiting family, just wanted you all to know that you are in our prayers. I have been tracking Kevin’s progress through the last several weeks and am again amazed at how resilient children are. Kevin, you probably don’t know us, but we had a daughter who was very sick and spent a long time a Primary Childrens. She had 8 surgeries, an ostomy bag for 3 months (yuck!) and nerve damage in her leg so she couldn’t use one ankle and several toes. It was a long hard journey for us all. That was when she was 10 and now she’s 18 and living in Santa Barbara at Wesmont College. She’s got a killer scar across her stomach and a couple of toes that don’t work, but she rallied and is stronger for it. We will pray that you too will rally and be on that soccer field again soon. It sounds like you have an incredibly positive attitude and a lot of love around you, both important ingredients for growing stronger physically and emotionally. Hopefully you’ll look back in disbelief that you went through this illness. Someday it will be history. Character building history that is. So, know that there are people beyond your inner circle praying for you and caring deeply about your recovery. Enjoy the day. It’s a gift. Smile cause life is soooo good! Peace and love from the Barfields.
