UPDATE @ 5:12 EST
Just talked to Ness. Kiereney will be discharged tomorrow in the care of her sister. The final diagnosis is in fact viral meningitis which is the good kind to have. (seems silly to say - neither kind is good in my mind) She will be sent home on a slew of pain relieving meds and will need about a month to feel totally better.
Ness and Roger have their plates full: Kiereney's illness which has thrown them all for a loop, Michael's birthday (yesterday - Happy Belated Michael!), and Michael's graduation/commissioning ceremony. They are rallying as a family and are finding the strength to forge ahead. Their ability to keep on keepin' on is truly impressive.
I have Kiereney's home address if anyone would like to send her a card. I also have Ness's address. I forgot to ask Ness if she was ok with me posting them so I think I'll hold off. If you'd like either address, email me and I'll get it to you ASAP.
Ness is able to read blogs and some of the comments so please don't forget to let her know we're all thinking of her. (and the family) And keep the prayers coming.
Will keep blogging for Ness until she tells me to stop. Guess you're stuck with me for a bit longer. :)
Just heard from Ness. (another message as I was away from phone) Ness sounds more exhausted than ever but how could she not be?
Kiereney is still inpatient and is in intense pain. They are giving her morphine for the pain and then Zophran (sp?) for the nausea. Her vital signs are all over the place, the lowest being 90/50. Ness said she had a rough night.
Ness promised to text me with more info when she has it.
For now, please continue to lift Kiereney up in prayer as well as the rest of the family.
It's times like this that I wish we all lived closer to one another. It would be nice to be there for Ness and to help her through the awful waiting.
