All I can see all day is the tears in my daughter's BIG eyes when I hugged her good-bye-I just wanted to take her and run away and find someplace fresh and new for her-if it were only that easy -I know the disease would only follow her.
I wanted to do something special for all of you wonderful people her who have offered up prayers and positive energy for us.The only thing I could think of was to give everyone karma but, lo and behold half way through page too I was informed that I had given out enough karma for one day!!
I know in my heart that this world is a much better place for having all of you in it.Much love and energy to you all, Vicki

Vicki, don't worry about us - keep your focus on your daughter. Remember the light at the end of this dark, ugly tunnel - she is doing the right thing to get better. Hugs to you my friend.

Just spoke to Kiersten- she sounds ok-she's sad.She was a little surprized her blow dryer was confiscated.She said she is bored and wants me to bring her a coloring book and colored pencils on Sunday when we visit her I asked her why a coloring book and not a sketch pad (she likes to draw)and she said she doesn't want anyone reading anything into her drawings that isn't there.Interesting huh?

Vicki,
forget about doing anything for us, it's our privledge that you cared and trusted us enough to ask for our prayers. I imagine everyone here is wishing that there was more we could do. You take care of you and your family and beautiful kiersten and let us bow our heads and pray for all of you. She has taken a big brave giant step, let's keep her going forward. Many hugs and prayers to all of you.

Just an update on Kiersten...
We went to see her yesterday for both of the visiting hour sessions- I thank God that she is only a half hour away.It breaks my heart seeing her there but, she is determined to finish this program- that's as of yesterday- she really hasn't started any intense therapy yet as she was admitted on the weekend.She keeps saying I have too much I want to do with my life and I'm tired of this disease controlling it.I can tell when I look in her big eyes that she means it- the conviction is there. She looks so tiny and frail but, there is a fire in her words I hope she keeps going.
Life is so weird,this morning at 6 am Jimmy and I were dropping Dennis and his girlfriend Laurie off at Newark airport. They are headed for Jamaica- this is Dennis' graduation present to Laurie and has been a year in the planning.I felt so happy for them- One minute I'm in tears because my baby girl is fighting a battle to get her life together and the next I'm smiling because my son seems to have his life together.On top of being weird-life is exhausting!!!Thanks for your continued support and prayers. Love and energy, Vicki

Vicki, you're being a wonderful, supportive mom. You're doing great! And so's Kiersten--what a strong girl to want to give this a try. I hope both of you have a good week!

She will need all the strength she can gather up for the start of the full therapy... I am trying to send out my share of "force" in her way...
