Dearest friends,

Thank you so much for your amazing and kind words.  They are like fresh water.  **** had not urinated for 20 hours when he woke up this morning.  We knew that meant trouble.  So grateful my sister and bil are here.  They took him to ER and I was right behind them with our daughter as I was going to drop her off at school.  As you know, she has autism and epilepsy and it is best for her to stick with routine.  She and I pulled into McDonalds to get her hash browns and OJ and my car died in line.  I have had this car for 9 years and it has never died.  Of course there were already 2 people pulled behind me.  I got out and said, "I am so very sorry but my car has died."  Both of them were around 60 years old and they did not hesitate.  The man and woman, who did not know each other, said "Let's push" and they did.  They pushed my car into a parking space, smiled in the Hawaiian aloha way and went about their days.   Our daughter was so very, very upset since routine had been broken and she was in tears.  I called AAA and my mechanic and got it all set up.  She was so upset.  I then started to cry and a wonderful woman parked next to us.  She recognized our daughter from Shriners Hospital and just cried with me and offered to help in any way.  She was a huge comfort.  Bottom line is our daughter made it to school and I got to the hospitial.

Break in story.  Hurricane just got upgraded to cat 3.  Trying not to freak out.

**** - kidneys are failing but may be infection.  Pain under control.  Moving to room.  Trying not to freak out about news on upgrade of hurricane.  Please pray for **** and our family.

Daughter flying in tomorrow (if airport is open) with ****'s best friend.  mil and sil flying in.

I need to make sure all at home is safe and make some phone calls.  Will update later.

Aloha,
Kathleen

    Dearest Kathleen

    I am so sorry that **** is in the hospital, but given your weather expected there perhaps it is for the best.  Hope that they can resolve the kidney issue and give him more time.

    Prayers for your family trying to get to you in the midst of all this.  May they have safe, uneventful journeys.

    I am so glad that your sister and bil are there with you. 

    I hope that all remains safe at home, but special prayers for the safety of you and your family.

    Hugs and love to all

    Thank you

    Thank you dear friends.  Your words are so precious.  The first hurricane is still coming and should "only" be a tropical storm when it arrives tomorrow morning.  The second storm is now a cat 3 but should down grade.  We are set at hospital and **** even took some spoonfuls of soup and sips of root beer.  He is now sleeping again.  They say he has a big urinary track infection but the question is why.  Still not a lot of urine output which I know is not good.  Will keep you updated.

    Aloha,

    Kathleen

    Kathleen:

    I am so very sorry.   I remember losing it over a flat tire.  Silly now that I think of it but at the time it was just overwhelming, one more thing going so very wrong.  I remember a kind lady seeing I was somewhat upset staying until the tire got fixed and I was on my way.  Reminds me that there are some very good and kind people in this world.  So, dear one go ahead and have a good cry, scream, yell at a tree!  You are surrounded with those that know and love you and **** and are loved and cared for by so very many you have never personally met.  Hopefully that brings you some degree of comfort. 

    Love and Hugs - Tina
