Hospital Again.....

Hi all,

Just a quick update on Katie. Unfortunately we are currently back in the hospital, Katie was suffering from a significant amount of pain, nausea, and vomiting with quite a bit of blood in her vomit.

We arrived at the ER this morning and were admitted to the hospital by late afternoon. She is currently receiving two units of blood and they will evaluate her blood loss to see where go from here. The blood is originating from the tumor in her stomach and may be problematic to get under control should it not slow on its own.

I will try to keep you all updated as we know more.

Take care,
Kevin

Katie,
I have only just discovered your blog and have only read a little of your story, but I can already see what an amazing woman, wife and mother your are. Your story has touched my heart and even though I am not an overly religious person, you are in my thoughts and my prayers. I will continue to read your blog and follow your story and pray that I will be able to do so for some time yet.
I pray that you can stay strong and find the miracle you need to beat this horrible disease. My family was devastated by cancer last year, so I know how hard this battle can be.
Keep swimming!

Hey Kevin, thanks so much. I do not know you all personally but have been following your journey. I certainly do not want to supercede what you and your doctors are doing but I went through this very same thing with my brother 3 years ago. The doctors stopped the bleeding with radiation. Just wanted you to know.

Please please see Dr. Ben Chue at Lifespring in Seattle!! I sent an email earlier, but I cannot emphasize enough how this might be THE difference Katie needs. http://www.lifespringcancer.com/
