So Carol had grafting surgery again this morning at 7:30 am. The first of the morning at the hospital again. This was to do final (hopefully) grafting over most of her body. Only a couple small spots on her hips did not get autogenous grafting, but those are supposed to heal on there own. So if all goes well, hopefully this will be the last grafting procedure. We expect lots of pain the next couple of days, but to subside fairly quickly. Her hand may not have to have surgerynow. Something with some scar tissue limiting her motion. They will wait fot her right arm to heal abit, then see if it needs the surgery.

Thanks for the update, Scott. We are very glad to hear that the surgery went well. Hopefully, they will be able to keep Carol very comfortable. It will be great if that is the last of the grafting!

Thanks as always Scott. I hope to visit her tomorrow morning. I hope she'll be up for a visit, I am sure she would love anything to help keep her spirits up and her mind off things. I look forward to spending some time with her.

Luvs, Kari :)

Hi Scott,

Thanks for the update. I'm praying she won't been in as much pain as before. Praying for a miracle regarding her vision too. Stay strong and keep fighting!

I have just been reading my journal from the summer of 1992. You came for a visit with your mom and grandma in July. When you left I talked about how sad I was to see you go and that it was like having a sister for a few days. I love and miss you!
