I just got back from the hospital and Kitty has had a slight setback. Her Kidneys have shut down so the doctors were forced to put in a tube so that they can put her on dialysis.  The doctor told me that this is not too unusual in cases like hers and that he expects no long term damage to her kidneys but this is definitely not a good thing to happen. Her ventilator numbers have also gotten worse and the doctors had to increase her settings to keep her blood saturation numbers up.  I know that this is not what we wanted to happen but Kitty is strong and she will get better.  Everyone keep thinking positive thoughts and we will have our Kitty back soon.

    I send you all my best. Kitty is strong and I’m sure she will beat this. Be well and be strong, I know this is hard on you too, Sven. This too shall pass and we will all have our Kitty back.

    Much beloved Kitty,
    we trade one vigil for another
    a kingdom waits
    and prays for you
    Kolfinna the Irrepressible
    Sven, a bonfire on the beach
    Waiting for her return
    Never does she shirk from any battle
    Be it sword or feast, she thrives
    We wait for her to put to proof
    Our Kitten has 9 lives!

    Hey Brother Sven,

    I have been here reading every day and praying for Kitty and you. It sounds like Kitty is getting good care to help her beat this nasty bug. Just please remember to take care of YOU; she’s gonna need you a lot when she comes home from the hospital. Let us know if there is ANYTHING you need; also, I’m always at drs and can easily run a Costco dog or pizza by to you.

    We’ve never met, but I know folks who do know both of you — and I’ve used Kitty’s directions for the Hangerrock. We *almost* know each other. Know that somebody else in Meridies is praying for you both. I hope to get to meet you in person one day.

    Duke Sven, know that you also are in my heart, and I likewise pray for your strength and courage. Remember that you both are beloved by many people in many lands.

    Bri is right, her kidneys are getting a break and the dialysis will help to cleanse her blood. This will allow her to fight a better fight.

    Thank you for taking the time to keep us posted, the moments are few and far between when I am not thinking about the two of you and wondering how things are going.

    It is beyond my understanding what it is you must be going through these weeks, days, and hours. I know that reflection on it, especially in last couple of days, has left me humble, tearful, prayerful, and even grateful. This wonderful and gifted woman has always been for me an inspiration and much larger than life… a gift. Please know that you are both in my thoughts and I send pink light, love, and healing energy. I wish there was more that I could do. If needed in any way, I am there of course, as I know all who know this bright light and amazing force of life would be. God Bless. Di

    There are often small bumps in the road to recovery, so minor setbacks are to be expected. Kolfinna is “Larger Than Life” and one of the “Untouchables”, so she will pull through this with flying colors (ablazing)!!! Sven, please know that Kitty, you, and your families, are in my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers. Take care!
