Back to the Beginning

Over the last few days Kevin has been deteriorating again. He hasn't been keeping enough fluids in him and his calcium level is increasing as a side effect of the cancer. Over the last 2 days he has become more and more delirious and confused.  He is constantly trying to get out of bed and convinced that one of our cats has been living underneath him in the hospital bed. This makes for extremely LONG nights for both him and Dale, who are both exhausted. Even though he has kept us laughing we knew it was time to head back to the hospital.
Kevin was re-admitted to Twin Cities Hospital this morning and is waiting for a bed to be moved form the ER to a regular bed.  He is receiving fluids and the professional care he needs.
Again we ask for no visitors.  He is not in a clear state of mind, he can't remember anything, he hasn't slept for days and we need him rested up for visits with his family. We appreciate your continued love and support and of course the many prayers!


  1. Hang in there, everyone.

    Love Becky

  2. Love you, Dale. You are in my thoughts all the time. Am going to the temple sometime this week and will put your names on the prayer roll again. Also am remembering you in my own. Courage up. Norma

  3. Love you all !! Forever keep you all in our prayers !!

    Dale, please remember to take the time now, while Kevin is in the care of professionals, to take care of yourself so you can better support his recovery. :)

  4. Love to all, hugs and kisses, constant prayers for all. Dale, if I can do anything, please call me. I love you. I don't want to call and bug, but know that I think of you throughout every day. Robin

  5. WE are thinking and continually praying for your family daily. Sounds like Kevin is acting like a naughty child. Be sure to take lots of photos and notes to torture him with later. You know he would !!!!!
