Wow, I sure did let a lot of days pass since my last post. So, what has been happening? Karly and I flew to Maryland on July 14 to attend Reid's Memorial Service just prior to her hospital treatments. Tracy and the girls drove out. The service was honoring to him and his family. Of course it was emotional, but so good to see many family members. We were cared for by Debbie and Ridge's friends for meals, and special events...bonfire, horse riding, and swimming. Konner and Kassidy were able to...

Since I've been home, my days are filled with whatever the Lord brings to mind next. It has been busy, but I made it to the pool for the first time on Saturday. That
was peaceful. It allowed my mind to focus and rest. It just floats between the two. I have started pulling Kelsey's clothes out of the drawers and giving them a good washing. The girls will go through whatever they need, save a few items for them to grow into, then give the rest away. I found a few gems...things Kelsey wrote...

Karly is resting back in her hospital room. They found a small cut in her esophagus which may be where she gets her food and pills stuck. She is on a strict no food, ice, water, nothingness diet today. If she doesn't get worse with pain, then it most likely is healing, and they will let her go tomorrow. She had a lot of secretions in her lungs. He cleaned it out and is sending for cultures. This may be the cause of her extreme tiredness. It doesn't explain her headaches or swelling face, but it...

It has been 3 weeks. The time has been flying by for me. I kept meaning to update you, then something else would crop up. Karly's medical situation hasn't changed much....

Very much relieved right now. We flew in early for this visit to re-check her spinal fluid pressure and re-run the tests on the spinal fluid. Most all the tests are in as negative today. Ruling out the bad things is a good feeling. We have tried a couple different additional antibiotics without any good changes only bad side effects, so this is not working. We are adding some additional antihistamines and a different nasal spray in the hopes that it starts clearing her head, she gets more rest...

Just an update on Karly. She has been experiencing some extreme tiredness and headaches for over 2 months. At first, we didn't think much of it. She always has sinusitis, so she was put on an extra antibiotic and increased the one she is always on to an adult dose. Both symptoms have persisted regardless of these changes. I don't know how to exactly described how we were feeling about this, but let's just say that after 2 months, my mind wouldn't stay away from thinking "cancer". We spoke about...

Now, it’s time for a brother blog post. By now most people have stopped reading the blog I’m sure. So, it’s safe to let me write something…here goes nothing. I’m the twin...

One of the things on my mind is seeing Kelsey again. I long for it, so I can hold her, climb into bed with her, and just finish conversations we've had. I had a dream 3 nights ago, and she was in it. I cannot say anything in particular about it except it was peaceful and fulfilling. I wish it would come again. Another thing on my mind is Karly. We have told her countless times that she is not Kelsey. Her outcome is not based on Kelsey's. This is still true. During her appointment, the doctors...
