DAY 273

We took Karson up for his weekly appointment to Dr. Elovic. He changed some of his medications and gave me some recommendations to make Karson more comfortable. Being in that bed 24/7 reeks havoc on a body......He didn't get his baclofen increased at the appointment because he has a bad sore on his little toe from curling his feet so tight and he has hemorroids from always having his body in a fight mode. Increasing the baclofen while he is getting through pain is not a good idea. All I can say is that Karson is one tough person. I have seen him go through so much these past 9 months and he still is fighting. He is doing great with is speech therapist. His swallow is getting so much better. I can't wait to be able to feed him real food. He continues to have a lot of visitors. Thanks so much for all the support. This has been a tough time for Karson and our family. We couldn't have done it without all the love and support that you all have given us. We wish all of you a very Happy Holiday season with your families and friends.


  1. Our love, thoughts and prayers are with you all. Karson, keep fighting tough guy! You know that King blood is bull headed and won't let you ever give up! Hope you will all have a great Christmas. Give those four cute kids a hug and kiss for us! Love you! Mark and Lisa

  2. It's always so good to read the update on Karson. We are always wondering how he is doing. Good to see him yesterday. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and hope to see you during the holidays. Our prayers are with all of you always.
    Aunt Lana & Family

  3. Karson, my thoughts and prayers are constantly with you. I have been fighting a respiratory bug for a couple of weeks and haven't dared to come and share it with you. But I think of you every day, and pray for your continuing recovery. You are a truly remarkable soul. May God's comforting Spirit be with you and your dear family through the holidays. Love you all so much!!! Lynette

  4. Karson,
    We want to wish you an early Merry Christmas and want you to know that we are thinking of you. Take care and keep working hard.
    We love you,
    Chet, Sue & family

  5. Hi Kars! We want to wish you a Merry Christmas and let you know that you are a gift to each one of us. Your fighting spirit and determination to be well again is our inspiration. We pray for the new year of 2011, to be one of renewed commitment, faith and a return to good health. We love each one of you and want you to remember that you are not alone on this journey. God bless you all! Carrie, David and Bryan.

  6. Hello Karson,
    We love you and wish like crazy that you didn't have to fight this battle. At this time of Christmas I think of the birth and life of our Savior and all he has suffered for us; he will continue to lift and carry our burdens and make them seem less heavy. May His peace be with you and your wonderful family. We will see you soon.
    Aunt Cyndi and all the Jorgensen's
