Oh Katie, thank you so much for keeping us updated on Buck's condition. I hope today brings better news. Take care of yourself and Buck too! We're pulling for you..

Shocking to hear the pain such good folks are feeling now. I can tell you're so strong and Buck is safe now in the care of professionals. It's scary and sobering to have our stable lives disrupted by illness. I will be praying for your family, as you can never have enough prayers! Katie, it is kind of you to take the time to keep us all updated on how Buck's feeling. Hopefully it's therapeutic for you, too. I only wish there was more we could do to help you out. Good luck and best wishes to get well and home to the porch soon, Buck.

Just got off the phone with Buck's day nurse. She said when she came on at 7 a.m., his BP was 90/?, but now it was 130/60. She said they were trying to determine whether or not to do the "scope" test on his throat and stomach this morning. The key is whether or not his BP stays up. I have my fingers crossed. Hope when I arrive at the hospital at noon that the test will have been done.

As for me, I never got to the food last night. Will do some of it this morning. I stayed out on the front porch until after 8 last night. Was treated to a spectacular lightning bug show I couldn't take my eyes off. Plus, Miss Chief and her kittens were especially attentive. I know they sense something is amiss.

Came inside and had a supper of a roasted turkey leg, mixed veggies and a baked Vidalia onion, so you can be assured I AM eating.

Went to bed about midnight, usual time, read for a while and did sleep most of the night.

Okay, now I'd better get downstairs and feed my inside and outside children.

I'll let you know more when I get home later today.

Thanks, again, everyone for your comments, thoughts and prayers. It helps a LOT! You're my "family" right now.

Keep strong Katie - it seems that things are on the up. We keep praying.

I am so sorry you have to go through this alone. You have the support and love of all of us here. You and Buck were shuch a comfort to me when I needed someone. I will keep you two in my thoughts, prayers and heart.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Katie, I said many prayers in the night for you and Buck. I am so thankful that you were able to get a good rest because you need to look after yourself right now or you won't be any good for Buck. I will continue to pray for you both and look forward to your next update when you can.

Dear Lord, I pray for Your loving presence to surround Buck and Katie now. Let them know and experience your healing touch. Guide the physicians as they care for Your child Buck and may they provide him with the best care this world has to offer. We thank you for the wonderful example of love this couple has shown us through their marriage and the way they enjoy each other. Give Katie the strength she needs to support her Buck. We pray for all these things in your holy name. Amen
