Karing 4 Kerri


Off to a great start

Posted on June 17, 2012 at 6:10 PM

Hi everyone!  Our travels to Monterrey, Mexico went very well yesterday.  Kerri was very sore and exhausted by the end of the day but did much better than we all expected.  She’s one very brave and determined girl (our hero, in fact!).  Our hotel room was very welcoming with some unbelievable surprises left for us from our good friends, Sarah and Jessica.  There was a beautiful Mexican girl doll to watch over Kerri this week, yummy snacks, flowers and even a handmade combination card from Jessica to celebrate Kerri getting well this week and having a birthday next month.  We felt like royalty!

Dr. Cantu came to see us yesterday to talk to Kerri about what is planned for this week and to have Kerri explain about the difficulties she’s been having since August of last year.  I know you have heard us say this before, but he is truly an amazing doctor and such a compassionate person.  We’re so blessed to have him helping Kerri.

Today in the van on the way to the hospital, the driver played some music for us (fellow RSD families, do not worry, it was not too loud) and we drove here listening to one song with lyrics saying “everything is gonna be alright” and next was a tune from the Rolling Stones.  We decided these songs were played for us with a reason – after Kerri gets the surgery for the port and the high dose ketamine treatments, she will be out of the wheelchair and be able to “Move like Jagger”!

She is all settled in back on the 8th floor of Hospital San José.  Many of the staff who have already come in, remember Kerri.  To give you an example of how special we feel, one nurse came in and right away said she likes Kerri’s new haircut and was asking where is Kerri’s little sister?  They have also asked for Kerri’s “bodyguard” Jeff.  Dr. Cantu got Kerri’s IV started in the most comfortable vein on the first try (we’re doing the happy dance) so she’s having a continuous ketamine drip for now.  Surgery to implant the port catheter is scheduled for 2-3:00 tomorrow with about 5 days of high dose ketamine boosters for 5 days after surgery.

Thanks for tuning in and for all of your prayers and well wishes.

Happy Father’s Day!


Kathy, Mark and Kerri

It’s genuinely very complicated in this active life to listen news on Television, thus I simply use internet for that purpose, and obtain the hottest information.
