Quick Update   February 8th, 2012

From Linda…

We have met with Dr Flaherty as well as Dr Curry today (and it felt like a half dozen other drs). Currently, brain surgery is off the table.

Jake is doing better and has regained some strength. He did eat some today which is much better than the last several days. They are still trying to figure out the reason for the low blood levels. A scan of his abdomen showed no problems there.

The kids came over to visit for an hour or two and both remarked how much better he looked and how more responsive he was than just yesterday. Of course, it probably helped Jake to get their hugs as well :-)

I read your posts and emails to Jake today as well. Thanks for the encouragement and support.

Oy, exhaustion, lack of appetite and the hospital… no fun for anyone. Linda and Jake, my love to you guys!! Here’s to getting the red blood cell counts back up and getting out of the hospital asap. xoxo

Hopefully Dr. F has a four leaf clover in his pocket! A little pothole on the road to NED – hoping the doc’s can get you tuned back up and humming down the road to Wellville! If you have to pass through Germany on the way to NED, beware of slippery patches of frozen sauerkraut on the autobahn ;-]

PS – I promise to go in and make an O Neg deposite in your honor as soon as I’m over my cold!

Glad to hear Jake is doing better. As Laura said in her comment out your last post, be sure to take care of yourself. Things like this a tough on the care givers too.

Linda, thank you for keeping us aware, and as others have said – take care of yourself too (as hard as that may be at moments like this).
Jake, Linda, Bas and Yana – more hugs to you all.
Jake, you are the warrior, in our hearts :-)
