Best, best, best to you, Kevin! I am thinking of you, and of your wonderful family! Heal, heal, heal is post-surgery the mantra.

Hi Kevin,

We have been watching and waiting, hoping your doctor would schedule your surgery sooner rather than later. Aug 25 sounds great. And it sounds like you have a very skilled and caring doctor. A great combination in a surgeon. We will be sending happy, hopeful vibes to you this coming week and healing vibes after that. It will be so wonderful when you can get back to eating what you want and playing soccer with your buddies!

Hey Kevin and the gang,

We hear you are off (probably flying as I write this) and meeting up with your mom and Phil in Mexico for some beach and R&R time before the 25th. Great idea! You’ll be in great spirits to tackle this– after Dr. Downey fixes things up for you.

We’re thinking of you and sending our love from UT, CO and CA.

Paula, Jeff, Ben & Connor

Hi Cute Whiting Family,

You’ll all be in my thoughts and prayers. I pray the Lord will bless the surgeon, that He will bless Kevin to respond well to the surgery and that the Lord will bless all of you with peace and comfort.
Have fun at the beach!
I have a great book I can loan you called, “Help Me to Heal”, by Bernie Siegel, M.D. The cover says, it’s a “practical guidebook for patients, visitors and caregivers”, and “essential tools, strategies and resources for healthy hospitalizations and home convalescence.

Though we haven’t met, I’ve heard about you through your mom and a colleague of mine – who work in the same company I do (Right Management). Yes, we mom’s talk about our kids from time to time. I have two daughters and talk about them to many other moms. They are a little older than you – 17 and 22 years old. By looking at your photos, I can imagine what you will look like when you are 17 years old … and the kinds of sports and activities you will be playing! I know that next Monday is a special day for you! Please know that I will be praying for you … and I really believe the power God brings us in prayer. I just experienced His power myself – after I had been in a deep conversation with Him. Much love to you, Kevin!! Debbie Schroeder-Saulnier

Dear Kevin,

I know you’re at the beach this week. I hope you have a great time! I love the beach. I’m a little jealous!

I’m thinking that next week will be full of anxiety and a lot of hope. That’s a strange but common mixture of feelings isn’t it? Any step to get better at anything in life is like that. For that reason I’m asking God to give you an added measure of FAITH for the journey. Faith and Hope go together. Together they are very healing. And I’ll ask God to give Dr. Downey a special measure of brilliance! (Did you know that the organist at your Grandpa & Grandma’s church’s name is Mrs. Downey? Funny, huh?)

God Bless you Kevin!

I can’t wait for you to get “hosldhaisduowjaah” surgery so that you can eat more Life Cereal and teach Chase & Gracie how to play soccer.

Have ton’s of fun in the sun at the beach. We wish you the best and look forward to seeing you soon.

Lot’s of Love,

Hi Kevin and gang,

Hope the beach treated you all well. Please know lots of love and prayers have been and are coming your way from the Saeeds. We will go into over-drive on Monday Kevin and pray very hard for a Fast and Full recovery. We are all pulling for you and can’t wait to come and cheer you on at that first soccer game!

Jeff and Vicki, I left a message on your cell phones as well. Much love,
