In the hands of great docs again

This morning Kevin and I headed down to Santa Clara Kaiser for him to be admitted, again.  He spiked a fever last night and was weaker then ever.  We new he needed fluids and some good old fashion hospital care.  Since we've been here he has been seen by the Cardiologist team, Infectious Disease, & Gastroenterologist team.  His symptoms, this time, have made him extremely weak and fatigued.   He said everyday feels like the second day of a bad flu.   These teams together are trying to figure out what is going on with him.  They need to rule out heart rejection and amyloidosis in his G.I.  We hope this is a nasty virus, because viruses can get better.  He's had all kinds of labs already and will have a colonoscopy in the morning.  He joked that this is one proceedure that he's never had.  For dinner he gets to drink  Go-lightly, but Kevin calls it run-quickly.  This is to clean out his G.I. for the colonoscopy in the morning.  He's relieved to be here.  At home he tends to self-diagnose.  Now he can relax and let everyone else take care of him.  It's a good thing.  

I'll update when I know more,

I will be praying for you guys. I just experienced Golightly a couple of days ago. Definitely the worst part of that procedure. I can't imaging doing it when I was feeling very sick. Kevin, I love you. Hang in there and keep your positive attitude full of hope as usual. Barbie, I love you. I'll be thinking of you nonstop. Love, Mary Jane

I never thought I'd say, "I sure hope this is a virus!" but that is my hope for Kevin. You two are incredibly strong people for Heavenly Father to "bless" you with this experience. Hang in there guys and know you're not alone....we all love you dearly.

Please keep us updated! We hope that Kevin feels better soon. The docs will be able to figure it out.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please bless Kevin & Barbie. Bless the medical team caring for him and open their hearts and minds to find the best possible treatment for Kevin.
We thank you for your divine love you shower down upon them.
