Memorial Day to Remember

Memorial Day the Mostranskys and Kavanaughs got together for food and fun in the sun. Kashius played with his baby cousin Adele, and he and his sister September played on a giant inflatable water slide.

The day ended with a family canoe trip out on Glass Lake, and the discovery of a baby turtle crossing the road. Kashius 'helped' the turtle find a new home in grandpa's pond.

Great Easter Sunday with the Family!

The Kavanaughs and Mostranskys got together today for Easter--it was the first time in a while since we'd all gotten together. Everyone was in good spirits, and the weather was beautiful. We had a wonderful home-cooked meal generously provided by family friends. Kashius demonstrated some cool Taekwondo moves, September played with her baby cousin Adele, the family played a game, Grandpa juggled, and the kids played outside on their scooters--it was a good day.

White blood cell count slowly growing

The chest tube is out, and the lung is fine...now to fight the pneumonia, which is hard to do without white blood cells of your own. The white blood cells are growing everyday though! They hope to bring Kashius home by Wednesday, just in time for Easter weekend. 

Tube is out.

The catheter tube is out of Kashius' lung today. They are waiting to see if his lung will inflate on its own. If not, they will have to reinsert the tube. Let's hope they don't have to!
