Buck and Katie have been on my mind all weekend. Hope the hospital transfer provides them answers. Katie, know that all of us here are praying for you and Buck and your family.

I am glad to hear they are taking him to a place where the equipment and personnel are more familiar with the unfamiliar. Neighborhood hospitals are great for emergencies, but the big teaching hospitals are best when you are REALLY sick.

I'm hoping this will be a big help on Buck's road to recovery.

Prayers continuing without ceasing....

thanks barb,

even though the news is not good, it is better than being in the dark, as to what is going on.

can't stop thinking about them and am sure neither can anyone else.

Those of you who have sent a donation to Katie and Buck, I just want to let you know I sent it on to her and attached all your names to it. As long as folks send the money I will continue to send it to her. They will need all the help they can get with Katie having to stay in a motel.

Yes, if anyone has a few extra dollars this month, I know first hand how expensive it is staying with a seriously ill family member in the hospital. Especially out of town. (Probably lots of people here have been in the same situation before, too.)

Alix is handling PayPal donations so that any monetary gifts can get to Katie quickly. Obviously, our prayers are priceless and the most important gift we can give to Buck and Katie. But if you've saved a little on lunch this week and feel moved to share, PM Alix and she will get it to Katie.

That's wonderful, Alix. Thank you so much for taking this on. I know it will give Katie a little less to worry about.

It is comforting to know that the doctors must feel that there is SOME hope, or they would not be transferring him to a tertiary care hospital. And if he were not more stable than he appeared to be earlier, I don't think transfer would be an option. Over the weekend, we got the impression that it was just a matter of time. No one here accepted that, and kept praying. Thanks, Barbara, for giving us this news.
