09/28 — Better news

Sorry everyone, I meant to post last night but I never actually sat in front of my computer and typed this up. Kitty is doing much better now.  she was stable all day yesterday and her numbers are slowly climbing back up. Today is more of the same. She is still in critical condition, but she is still in the game.   I want to thank everyone at rapier open who fought for her. There was also a tournament in Meridies on Saturday and apparently many fighters there fought for her as well because our Kitty is well loved throughout the known world. She is so well loved that security had to throw many well wishers out of the waiting room on Sunday, because she had between 20 and 40 people waiting to see her at any given time.  We still have no prognosis for when she will be off the respirator, but I will keep you all posted. — Sven

    It doesn’t surprise me the waiting room was full. Sounds like we need to put sunshades up on the front lawn of the hospital, or gather in the cafeteria, so the critical care unit waiting room has available space for other visitors. ;) I know it’s cuz we all love her (and you too, Slothboy) that we want to be near her. I know this is not easy… rest when you can and know we’re thinking good thoughts. GO ORANGE!!!!!!

    Such a relief. Not out of the woods, yet, but so much better news.

    I printed a photo of her to have at my desk to remind me to think of and pray for her constantly.

    Still hoping and praying for her to get better soon. Your friends from throughout the Known World all are praying to their personal god(s) for her continued well-being.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to keep us updated.

    So glad. A friend of a facebook friend was saying that she wanted to catch it before it mutated into something nasty — and I wanted to scream and bounce up and down and make her read this! Of course, I think that she was 18 and Invincible ™.

    *sigh*

    Continued prayers are winging your way!

    I’m so glad to hear that she is doing better. I shared on Facebook that I felt yesterday (Sunday) morning that she would be all right. I was at church and I know not everyone shares those beliefs, but the feeling was pretty strong. And very comforting. And bless you too, Sven, for your kindness and strength. Take care of yourself please as I know she has a ways to go still. We won’t stop praying!

    What a celebrity! The staff must wonder who the heck she is with such a devoted following.

    I got a message today from Eileen Dover of Calafia, who sends all her love and asks to give Her Grace some hand squishes from her.

    Okay, from me too.

    I *knew* she’d fight! She’s a tough cookie, and has so much light and love around her with all her fabulous friends. You’re right, Sven, she is much loved. So glad to hear the good news; I’ll continue saying little prayers. Take care of yourself…

    Best wishes from Kian and Juliana in Northern Artemisia! Kolfinna is very much loved here, and we hope for a swift and full recovery. We’re a little late on this ourselves, because Kian was just laid out with Swine Flu himself. Not enough to go be admitted, but enough that he was couch-bound for two weeks. He is recovering as we know Kolfinna will too. Please let us know if we can help in any way.

    Juliana and Kian

    I haven’t gone to the hospital as I understand it’s been party-central down there :) But I think about you and Kit every day. The world would be a darker, less wonderous place without her in it. Give her a hug for me, lots of love, M~
