Email from Susie.... Kerry's Wife

Hey All........I have copied an email I received from Kerry's wife Susie. I know they won't mind if I share it. Have a good day!

Jennie


I suppose you have heard from Brooks and read Kerry’s post. He is really having a hard time of it but I know that MY Kerry is still in there. He is now in rehab and getting stronger. After 2-3 weeks he’ll hopefully come home and then get whole brain radiation. A cute gal at rehab asked him today if he was ready for a shower and shave and he asked her if she’d take one with him!! I am going back and forth from trying to keep everything running smoothly. Our son Dan brought his I pad again today and read the posts but was too tired to post anything. He said to tell you all that how much he appreciates your concern and prayers. I’ll try to communicate as much as I can.

    Good to hear
    It is really great to get an update. It sounds like Kerry's cheekiness wasn't removed in the surgery! Wishing all good things for Kerry. Thanks Susie + Jennie!

    Knew This Would Be a Tough One....
    Thank you, Jennie

    Just a side: But you can see now why I talked to you about the "Crazy Colon Train" when we first started together, and what my fears were about that - I know you get that now....and that's why.

    I've been worried about Kerry as I realize that this is a tough situation to be in when it involves the brain. It scares all of us. He's approached it head-on and with vigor, but I'm gathering that's just his modus operandi:)

    The fact that Kerry can still try and "pick up the nurses" is a great sign - he is still "there" as his wife, Susie, can certainly attest - afterall who knows him best? :)

    Susie, I can't call you "scary", just not nice of me to do. Tell your "ol' coot" though to keep on being Kerry and we look forward to another update from you. Until then, the best to the both of you.

    Thanks for sharing the email.

    Susie and Kerry - This whole brain tumor stuff has to be so scary ... and not the scary ol woman kinda scary either. I want you both to know that I am sending good vibes and saying extra prayers that Kerry's recovery is speedy and uneventful.

    Kerry ... get it together will ya??? How are we suppose to run away if you're stuck in the hospital? Does this mean that you can't use the brain tumor card anymore? hmmmmmmmmmm

    HUGS to you both!

    Good to hear!
    Thanks, Jennie. I really appreciate you posting this.

    Susie, you husband is one of a kind, but I'm pretty sure I don't have to tell you that! Praying for him to be just as feisty as ever soon. Please make sure you take care of yourself, too.
