Nothing new to report concerning Kathleen. She continues to be healthy, but make no significant improvements.

Another sad once meaningful day passed today. Fifteen years ago was wedding day for Kathleen, and though today involved a nice massage in the morning by the evening she was struggling just to keep her oxygen up to acceptable levels. Kathleen seems healthy but she was coughing a lot this evening.

Kathleen had the full body spa treatment yesterday with the massage, hair cut and wash etc. She did very well at the spa and seemed to enjoy having her hair done.

Kathleen had a wonderful visit with her cousin and family who came from South Carolina and the kids had a great time too. The family has made some inquiries to various doctors and researchers concerning Deep Brain Stimulation but no response has been received as of yet.

Mike and the kids returned today from a whirlwind tour of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. During the trip there was spotty cell phone reception and it was hard to contact Kathleen every night. During the trip Kathleen received a burn on her wrist and it is impossible to find out how it happened but it appears to be getting better. Samie was frantic when she heard about her burn and gave her mom a big hug.

While we were gone there was news that a man who was minimally conscious has begun to communicate by the use of deep brain stimulation. Doctors at Kaiser told us when we asked three years ago about this treatment that Kathleen, despite the same diagnosis, was not a candidate. After asking Kaiser about this treatment next week, the family will likely investigate the treatment through Valley Medical without health care coverage.
