Update on Katie's Surgery Date

We just received a phone call from the neurosurgeons office to reschedule Katie's brain surgery. They have moved the surgery from Friday to Thursday. All of the pre-op appointments have subsequently been moved from Thursday to Wednesday. We do not yet have an exact time for the surgery, only that it will be happening on Thursday.

Our prayers are with your family. God bless.

Are they allowed to do that? Sheesh. That's just not nice.

We love you all so much and are continuing to fast and pray for you and your family (and your surgeons, drs, and nurses!). I hope you can feel our love across the oceans and mountains and and that you always feel wrapped up in God's love.

Keith and Katie - Letty here from the STL MH Ward. I am just barely catching up - somehow I just looked at pictures from your blog the past few months and missed the big TUMOR news! Richard and I are in shock (we are anniversary twinners with you guys after all, April 25, 2009), and we will be praying so hard for you tomorrow. For BOTH of you. I spent March 26th, 2007 at Barnes Jewish in the anxious, interminable wait during my sister's brain surgery, so I don't envy you the day tomorrow, Keith, but I have a fairly accurate idea of what it will be like. Procedurally, at least. I guess the biggest tip I have is to be prepared for Katie to look and sound fairly fine immediately after surgery, and then for it to get a lot worse, with swelling and speech lapse etc, before it gets better. Please call or email if you guys need anything or have any questions - just in case you haven't already found a been there/done that brain tumor guide! (

Been thinking of you guys all day and praying for the best. We will continue to have you in our thoughts and prayers tomorrow. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you from out here. We love you! -Brian and Kimber
