Saphellae, your prayers are more important than anything else you could give.

I have a cert for a free night at Raddison anywhere. Would like to give it to her but don't know if it would help or not. Also have those points for hotels I've been gathering for years.

Finances are a tough one you never know what will help and what won't. I guess adding anything combined with anything else adds up.

I hope this is all a blur to this family very soon and they can restart their lives both celebrating good health.

I'm continuing to pray as well. I am also praying for everyone who has anything to do with Buck's care, and everyone you have to deal with at the hospital, motel, restaurants, everywhere Katie, that their thoughts, words, and actions will all help uplift you both.

Barbara

This'll be quick. Buck was taken by plane yesterday afternoon to a hospital in Nashville, TN. He didn't fare well in the transfer. Son, Aaron, was able to be in the plane with him.

Daugher-in-law, Stacey, (Aaron's wife) drove to Nashville, so I didn't have to worry about driving.

By the time Buck got to the Nashville hospital, he had to be intubated. His repiratory system was the strongest system, so the doctor felt it was important to preserve it. The only thing he wanted to let us know was that, if the tube couldn't be removed, he wouldn't be able to "say" his good-byes. I told the doc to put the tube in because I wanted Buck to have all the chances he could get.

So far a place to stay hasn't been a problem. The hospital has an "inn" on campus for families who have critically ill members as patients. I qualified as one of those family members.

Lots of tests have been done. Still a BP, liver and kidney, potential cancer issue, with the addition of internal infection. From what? Don't know yet. He's being given antibiotics.

He's kept mildly sedated so he doesn't pull out the tube in his throat, which means he mostly just sleeps. I was beside him all night long last night holding his hand and catching a few moments of sleep with my head on the rail. Couple of times I pulled my hand a way, but he grabbed it and held tight.

Son, Chris, and his fiancee arrived about 5 a.m. today. So here we are and this is all we know.

As for flowers, there's really no way we could have/enjoy them where Buck is now. There's no real nurse's station, so they couldn't be put there. Just so's ya know.

I've skimmed a lot of the last part of this thread. I can't tell everyone how much we appreciate everyone's loving thoughts, prayers and generosity. Our cup runneth over.

I'll try to keep you updated.

Love,

Katie and Buck
