A rough night for the boys



SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2007 09:02 AM, CDT
I am glad to see so many funny guest book entries as I needed a chuckle after this mornings phone call. Elliott was put into intensive care last night as he spiked a high fever twice and had virtually no blood pressure. Dad said no one slept at all. They suspended his chemo until they got a handle on it. It was restarted early this morning again. Dad said this all happened probably due to the chemo. Everything for the moment seems to be under control but he may remain in ICU till his treatments are over. And to think Elliott was wanting to stay alone at the hospital. I think I kinda talked him out of it as I felt safer with one of us there not to mention he would have probably changed his mind anyway. Maybe it was intuition but I am glad he finally asked for daddy to stay. I cannot imagine ever leaving him alone again. He just simply is too darn ill. Please pray he finishes this stay without further incident.

I was talking to Dan this morning and he said "I do not know how we all do this" Me either......


Cindy, you do all this because of love. Is there a more powerful emotion? Know that we all are praying for Elliott, and you and Dan, for the strength you need to get through this. The fight is never fun, but the joy when it is complete is beyond words.


Oh Cindy I'am so sorry for all that you are all going through. Stay strong.
Prayers are on the way from MN.
I asked my son to go give blood, because I'am not able to donate.


And you do it because of HOPE too...never let go of hope. I am thinking about you all...=hug


What a heck of a way to wake up this morning Cindy! :phone Glad they finally got things under control and that Dad was there for Elliott. How frightening that must have been for both of them. :(
Keep up your faith girlfriend. The night is darkest just before dawn.

continued prayers for all of you, especially King Elliott (love that newest pic of the banner. I'll bet it made him feel really special when he saw that)

Hugs, Mari
