OK, I am jumping in to make an update.

June = OK

Katie = Not so OK

I have two reasons why June is AWOL. One is true the other is not, I will let you decide.

Reason 1.

June is at NASA. She was invited there to do some top secret blogging swoon thing from space. Totally designed to get middle eastern women to start showing more ankle. In return, that is expected to drive the middle eastern men crazy. Therefore, making them lovers and not fighters. Ending all fighting.
She has been training hard and it is taking a toll on her. One day, after a severe day of training, she logged on to blog (she loves you guys) and accidentally hit the wrong button. I am still not sure why Blogger put the "lock out blog" button next to the "post blog" button. Kind of seems stupid to me.

How I know this is, I called a favor in to some CIA buddies of mine and they set up a direct link through the super secret IASFOC network. I am sure that most of you have never heard of that network..... there is a reason for that. It's super secret. But she sounds good, and she is learning how to use the super powers they implanted in her.

Oh, crap.

I wasn't supposed to say anything about her super powers. NASA is going to be pissed. Oh, well. It's not like I can erase everything I say......

I will say that, very soon, she will be able to type 3700 words a minute. Currently she is 2900.

Amazing, just amazing.

Or..... reason 2

She is moving, and she has 4 kids (some in sports), and it's summer. So pretty much, she is busier than a one legged man in an ass kicking contest. She is on a much needed blog break. Every other time she tried to take a break, she felt guilty.
She is picking out paint colors, packing, and enjoying her kids. It's allllll good.

Good luck on picking the real reason...........

As for my sister Katie, she still needs prayers. She is still in the hospital (since May 31st). She is not doing well right now, but they say the prognosis is good. It's hard to believe that when things keep happening. She has been on a ventilator and in the intensive care unit since Thursday.

I always thought that going to intensive care was a bad thing...

We keep hope and we pray. And have become very familiar with hospital cafeteria food. Not so good. I must have confidence that the doctors at UIC Hospital know what they are doing.

Well, that's the updates. The good and the bad.

That's all for now. I have to jump in the shower and get back up to the hospital. Never enough time in a day.

Your Cousin

Cousin Steve:

First, I'm so sorry to hear about your sister. MS is from the devil himself, I tell ya. A cousin of mine suffers from it. Breaks my heart.

Second, thank you for the June update. I no longer worry that she is consumed with grief and waiting in line for a glimpse of MJ's star on Hollywood.

Third, I *love* the Star Trek photo on your sidebar. Way cool, dude!

Praying for your sister. A lot of my patients have MS and I just cannot even imagine the full day-to-day much less the ICU experiences. So sorry she (and all the family) is going thru it all.

those NASA guys are so smart sometimes. Glad they thought to use June's mad skillz to promote peace in the middle east.
I figured it was something like that...

Thanks for the updates on June and your sister. Will continue to pray for your sister and those who love her.

Thanks for the updates Steve. I hope June is moving to Boston. We have many yoga studios, a few bars, so I've been told (wink)...and even some Irish people who like to hold a parade occasionally. I think it'd be a good fit.

So sorry to hear about your sister - I've asked to have her added to the prayer list.

Thanks for the June update! I was getting worried.

Hope your sis is feeling better and improving each day.

Go cubs!
