prep surgery was a success!

The prep surgery yesterday afternoon to perform the spinal tap and install a port was successful. The port provides them with direct access to her blood stream for chemo, IV, blood work, etc. It took a couple of hours to recover, but she was pretty happy when she finally could get up and move around.

She slept good last night, but feels a little bit sore today... as can be expected.

Thank you for your comments, prayers, thoughts, emails, phone calls, etc... I've been reading all of the comments and emails to her, and they really do help! Please keep them coming.

I've already spoken with a few people about visiting. I will try to get back to everyone else in the next day or two.

Gaelic Prayer

Deep peace of the running waves to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the smiling stars to you.
Deep peace of the quiet Earth to you.
Deep peace of the watching shepherds to you.
Deep peace of the Son of Peace to you.

May the blessings of each day be the blessings you need most.
Our Love,
Kristen, Matty & Keara
