Kevin's Dead Cat

After surgery sliced off an entire tumor and 1/3 of my tongue, plus six weeks of radiation therapy, I've been re-learning how to eat, drink, and talk with my newly re-constructed tongue and coping with side effects. But the cancer came back and I don't know what's going to happen next.

Laura's hospital stay extended

The doctors are having some trouble getting Laura's infection under control--her white blood cell count hasn't improved much with the current antibiotics, so they are planning to keep her at Kaiser West LA for a few more days. The good news is that it's not deep in her lungs--not pneumonia in other words. I'll update the blog whenever I can, but I'm spending most of my time at the hospital, so keep checking back even if things don't change too fast.

Oh, dear, just when our hopes were high about your blood drive. It sounded like such a pretty place to have a nurse go into my vein, too...Oh well, think red, everyone.

Btw, I met a technician at Kaiser who said Kaiser will now send blood technicians out to almost every party or event that requests one. LA is incredible.

I have high hopes for your speedy recovery, Laura. James, you are a G-dsend. XO

Dear Marla,

Your on and off visits to hospitals remind me of that old line from a Rosemary Clooney's ditty which goes: "You only build me up to let me down . . ." but I am optimistic you will get over it and live strong.
