DAY 221

Karson seems to be getting back to his himself after healing from the baclofen pump surgery. We go up weekly to the U of U to elevate his levels and he is tolerating the level changes well. He is not as stiff as he once was but he still has a long way to go. He had two appointments this week one with the neurosurgeon and one with the neurologist and they both said that he is doing well. In fact, he doesn't have another appointment with the neurologist until February. I admire Karsons strength everyday. I can't believe what he has gone through and he still has the fight in him. I can tell he gets discouraged at times but then he gets that fire in his eyes and I know that more than anything else he wants to win this battle. It is going to be years and I know he will win. Thanks for ALL the continued support. It means so very much to all of us. Your notes of encouragement seem to come at just the right time. Karson knows of all the support he has gotten and I know that is one of the reasons he is willing to win this battle.


  1. So glad to hear that the baclofen pump is helping. This is great news. Discouragment is normal, but having the fire and fight is rare. We know that you will win this battle. You are in our daily thoughts and prayers.
