(written by Ken)

To all my Great Family and Friends,

Will try and summarize the last 6 weeks as best I can.  Three of those weeks I was hospitalized at Mayo Clinic trying to attempt to find out what was causing some of the adverse effects I was having from the medication.  I am off two meds which could have caused the seizures.  Right now I am taking 25 pills per day, which is a full time job for Kathie to keep track of  - I have given up.

Right now I have dry mouth, no energy what-so-ever, blurred vision (I can hardly see to write this), poor balance, ear problems, and poor concentration.  These things are driving me crazy.  At night is when they really get to me.  Very, very frustrating!  I shouldn't feel so frustrated given I know there are so many people supporting me!

People have asked if I want company and it's not that I don't want to see them -- I just do not feel up to it.

I can not thank you all enough for all your thoughts and prayers.  I am so lucky to have such wonderful family and friends.  With the help of the Good Lord and your prayers - we will get through this.  This is a bigger bump in the road, but this "old crate"is still holding together.


Take care and God Bless you all,
