Thanks to all who continue to give to the Global Ischemia Foundation to try and help us promote research to help people like Kathleen. I would likely to thank, in particular, an ex-student who asked for donations to the GIF this year from her friends rather than presents. Thanks for the selfless act. :)

Four Years. No improvements for Kathleen though her constitution remains good. The girls have improved significantly and are again living their lives as Kathleen would want, but as always it seems so unfair to Kathleen that she cannot share it with them. Our best wishes and prayers go out to those who are in similar pain.

As Kathleen's four year anniversary approaches I often wonder what it might feel like to be imprisoned in your body for such a long stretch. The wonderful yet sad film I saw last night, Diving Bell and the Butterfly gives some indication but the man had some outlet to the outside world. I suspect that Kathleen must at least feel the love and warmth around her but as the stream of visitors and even visits of family members and from the kids and I becomes less frequent...does she notice that too? Its not fair but its reality and it is sometimes hard to reckon with. Here is a trailer for the fantastic movie. While at the movie last night I bumped into someone whose wife had also had a massive stroke. It wasn't surprising that Kaiser had failed her beforehand by sending her home when she had symptoms and has fought with her husband since by trying to avoid provide proper care for her.

Thanks for your note Koo.

Kathleen has experienced a very difficult two days after catching the girls stomach flu virus. She has been completely unable to keep down liquids until early this morning and looks frustratingly ill. Hopefully she will continue to mend this morning and afternoon.
