A Smile and a Plan


I’m not exactly sure, because we haven’t seen one in a while, but I believe that’s a smile on Kelly’s face. And that’s a strawberry milkshake in his left hand. The two are related, I think. It also helps that after a very rough 24 hours, Kelly’s got this hospital visit’s colonoscopy in his rearview mirror. 

Doc reports what we thought—Kelly’s got a very raw colon, and all the steroids we’ve thrown at it over the past two months have done very little to help. So we’re changing our approach, and will use a different drug (Remicade) to manage the inflammation. He’ll start it Wednesday. Our hope is that the drug starts working, and Kelly’s back in his own home before the weekend. It’s a small goal, but it’s a start.

And we’d be remiss if we didn’t thank so many of you for your prayers and general good thoughts. We are blessed with so many people who love and care for us—all of us—and we can feel you with us through this ordeal. It’s sometimes hard to feel lucky in the midst of this, but we know we are. Thanks!

From late last week … what “hole” are we referring to? Look here.
