Everything’s set-up for a great weekend. Our daughter, Kari, is home from WVU until Sunday evening. Ryan seems as though he is responding to the antibiotic. West Virginia University plays Maryland at noon today. The Redskins play the Cardinals at 1:00pm tomorrow. We should have overnight nursing coverage (thank goodness). I see nothing preventing me from some quality nap time. Yep, everything is in place.
It’s just so wonderful with Kari home. I missed her so much. She breathes life back into me.
So, we all piled into Ryan’s room last night, dogs included, just talking and laughing until around midnight. Without an inch to spare, Kari, Sue, Duke, and Tucker laid on the single bed next to Ryan. I begrudgingly settled for the rocking chair, jealous that I couldn’t put my arms around Kari. I was sad when we gave in to exhaustion and went to bed.
I hated the night had to end.
As for Ryan, he had a restful night. I’d like to think he felt the love and peace of being surrounded by his entire family and this calmed him. I might never know, but it doesn’t prevent me from hoping.

Hi Divineys – So glad Kari is home and so glad you are all enjoying wonderful family time. I’m sure this is what makes Ryan the happiest and he’s so lucky to have a family that loves him SO MUCH!!
Thinking of you all very often and praying for Ryan and his continued strength every day. xoxo
Welcome home, sweet Kari! Ryan is feeling the love of all of you surrounding him, Ken I still will always believe that you will know this. I will forever have hope that when he is ready and able he will return to you, blessing all of us with his strength and courage.
Sue, I have missed our talks. Your sweet and gentle nature is only surpassed by your immense love for your family and strength from within. I hope to see you soon, my dear friend!
As for Duke, oh Duke! I think he is posing to show us his best side. Though really any side is good with Ryan’s cutest protector. Good night Ken, Sue, Ryan, Kari and Duke…oops, Tucker too:)

I have no doubt Ryan felt the love today. I feel it deep in my heart that he knows you were all surrounding him today. And congrats Mountaineers on the win!
Sounds like you guys hit the zone, the comfort zone
Ken, I am sure it is an oversight that the picture Kari took and posted of cousin “Kenabilita” is missing from this blog?
