I saw Katy this morning, and she was looking good. They sedated her a little, so she was sleeping, but that is probably best right now. In case you haven’t heard, the doctors removed the breathing tube from her yesterday. Her blood gasses and creatinine levels are looking good. They are skipping dialysis today to see what her levels will be on her own. Though we still have a LONG road to recovery, visits where receive no bad news are great!
Amber and Jake are coming up with Bill and Pat this weekend. I am SOOOOO excited to see them!! I plan on taking a little time to go to dinner, maybe a movie, and visit the trainscape at Children’s Hospital while they are here.
I was asked for some of Katy’s favorite quotes or sayings. We both have so many that it is difficult to narrow it down to a few. If you want to know what Katy found inspirational, then watch/listen to some of the following things. These things always make think of Katy, and the messages are ones that Katy looked to for inspiration.
John Denver (folk singer)
The Steele Drivers (new roots/bluegrass band)
Firefly (Best television show ever!)
Daily Show with John Stewart
Any of the paranormal hunter shows on sci fi channel
She loved all of these things. Her and I would lay in bed and watch Daily/Colbert and decompress every night. It reminds me of how much we rely on our sense of humor to deal with overwhelming situations. Katy loves to laugh, and has the most beuatiful smile ever! Make sure each of you take the time to find the humor in any situation….it will keep you from going insane.
I am reminded of a saying…”People will reveal their true character by how they treat someone who can do nothing for them,” You have all revealed yourselves to be of fine character, and have renewed my faith in humanity. Thank you.
Love to all,
