So glad we got a word. Thank you for the update Katie, but terrified to hear any bad news. We're not done praying for miracles yet, so keep hanging on, we're all with you.
I'm glad you could arrange to stay so close. You need as much time together, and with energy to deal.

God Bless You KATIE>

I am so thankful for the report from Katie.
I only came on here this morning to hope there was something said from anyone knowing anything.
God bless her and God love her and Buck with what they're going through.
I don't want to be able to ever say "I know what you're going through".
Katie and Buck, yesterday while on vacation in Santa Fe, I prayed all day for you both. Last night, the praying never stopped, God is so good to awaken me just to pray for you then puts me back into slumber.
This morning I am up praying for you both.
See? He has to feel how much strength there is in prayer.
I know I feel much better holding the two of you up to Him.
It helps me through my day.
Bless you both and don't forget...
We're not done here...
All of us are praying and it's our blessing to do that...
Thank you for coming in and telling us a report.
I will pray for the strength of all concerned.

Thanks for the report, Katie. You will know what to say when the moment arrives.

Prayers continuing all day.

Hugs to you both.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I'd like to tell you all more, but I have to scoot. Buck needs me.

Thank you all for your love and prayers. I can't tell you how much it means to Buck and me.

It's so good to 'hear your voice' again and so generous hearted of you to try to send news in the midst of all your stress and heartache.
May you both be born up and strengthened by the tidal wave of loving support that has been expressed here.

We have lived this, and my heart goes out to both Katie and Buck. Being relatively new to DC, I don't have the relationship that many of you do with these folks, but the outpouring of support is a testimonial to their being wonderful people. I do pray that God will take care of you both.

Still watching and praying. All love to you & Buck. May God give you the strength for the next few days.

Oh Katie, it was so good to see your note. I was awake and praying about the time you sent it. As with the past couple of days I know I will find that know matter what I am doing my heart will be with the two of you in love and prayer.
Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
