Apparently Kaiser has yet to find an ear scope. The doctor called and said she can't find her ear scope and she has to train the new doctor and will be unable to see Kathleen for a few more weeks. Kaiser cares...not. Thrive!

Kathleen has lots of dried blood in here ear, but otherwise seems to be okay. Please consider attending HeartSkate if you have the opportunity. It is a worthy cause.

Apparently since Kathleen's ear is no longer bleeding her injury is not worth checking. Since the doctor doesn't currently have the equipment to look in her ear and she is training a new doctor to go to homes, Kathleen will not be seen this week. She will make a visit this month however. If her ear starts bleeding again we are to go to take her to Emergency. Thrive!

No doctor arrived today despite calls to nurses and such throughout the day. Unbelievable yet typical for Kaiser.

During Samie's huge slumber Birthday Party we got disturbing news that Kathleen's ear was bleeding from the inner ear. No nurse came today to investigate and the family was told to bring Kathleen into emergency instead. Unfortunately bringing Kathleen to the hospital greatly increases her risk of getting a potentially life threatening infection. Instead, the family elected to wait for a doctor to come visit the house on Monday. Not an easy decision. :(

What a great weekend. Dick Davey's 65th surprise birthday party garnered nearly a hundred ex-players, family, and friends on a wonderful sunny afternoon this past Sunday. It was a great tribute to my dad and an absolutely great day and Kathleen, who has unfortunately had significantly less guest this past year or so was visited often by family and friends. Bean was glowing that day, perhaps from all the attention she received. Several individuals also made generous gifts to the Global Ischemia foundation. Thank you Lou, Stanley, Phil and Irene, and many others! Thanks everyone for your help too. What a great day. Monday night's banquet was also bittersweet with the players and many guest openly disgusted about the administration decision and treatment of my father. Thanks to the boys for sticking up for what is right. They have obviously had good role models and all 6 are graduating this year and will become excellent members of society.
Here is their season highlight video:

The current goal of the GIF is to endow a chair at a local medical school (likely Stanford) who will work on the problem of anoxic brain inury. The major challenge the organization is having is that while gifts in the hundreds and thousands are very important and helpful, it is going to require a million to obtain our goal. Perhaps somebody like Mr. Sobrato who coincidentally dropped $20 million into the Santa Clara library the day my dad was fired could donate a million to such a worthy cause.

Hoorah for the senate.

Brain Injury must be addressed by this nation and very soon. 17% of soldiers returning from the Middle East have brain injuries.
Kathleen had two very nice massages yesterday and today which significantly loosened up her neck. Often, patients with brain injuries find themselves with swollen necks. She seemed to relax greatly after the massage and went to sleep early tonight.

Chris Barnes is going to receive his first stem cell implant for his anoxic brain injury tomorrow. Good luck to Chris and Koo.

Chris Barnes is in China receiving stem cell treatment for his anoxic brain injury. I really feel for Koo. I know what it is like managing things day to day under 'normal conditions' and can hardly imagine the stress she and Chris are under. Are thoughts are with you Koo.

Kathleen's heart rate climbed late last week as she was apparently working hard to get the adequate amount of oxygen. Since then, however, she has improved everyday, re-commenced therapy, and her heart rate is nearly normal.
