Preparing, mentally, to go.

I've noticed Kevin hasn't written since he got home Monday night.  It has been great to have him home.  We have been 'soaking' it up knowing that he will be gone for some time starting next Monday.  I'm not sure what health number he would have given for the past few days, but Tuesday he was a little tired; didn't have a lot of energy.  Wednesday and Thursday were really good days for him.  He seemed to feel stronger and was in good spirits.  Today he felt washed out, tired, weaker, a bit fatigue.  It could be that his chemistry levels are all messed up from the stem cell collection or side affects from his medication.  Don't really know.  He may have some labs taken tomorrow to figure out what may be going on.  We will cherish the next two days at home together.  I love being home. It's my sanctuary from all the commotion of the world.  I will miss sleeping in my own bed with my own pillow every night.  I can't imagine how Kevin is feeling right now knowing he will be away from home for 5 or more weeks.  

Heading to bed now.

o.k. My heart is pounding. You can't title your blog posts like that! It scared me!

Love you all, Wendy

Sorry - I should have finished the title, ... to Stanford Hospital. He's not dying for a looooooooooong time, so it didn't even cross my mind how that might sound.

Honestly, the hardest part about writing a blog is the title. Wouldn't you agree :)

Oh, how I miss you Barbie. Why can't you live around the corner and we can go for walks/talks and ice cream. I really miss my group of girls!
