Settling In

Toninette knew exactly what Kerstin needed to start making her hospital room feel a little more comfortable.


Aunt Sandi said...

A cool chair and fuzzy slippers ... You rock, Kerstin! xoxoxoxo

Deonne said...

Kerstin, I have never 'blogged' with anyone before! You are the first, so I hope I am doing this right. What a great chair - I wonder if they make that in an adult size? Get well soon and we're sending hugs and prayers to you and your whole family! Love, Deonne, Jon, Lauren & Jack Bruning

Grandpa Gordon and Grandma Joann said...

Hoping you had a good day. You look pretty cozy in your room. How's the food? Love, Grandpa & Grandma

Aunt Debbie and the boys said...

Hey Kerstin,
You're lookin' pretty comfy in that cool chair. Jeremy and Trevor want to know if they can have one. Jeremy really liked the pink color. That is his favorite color right now. What's on your agenda for next weekend? Could I maybe come and visit you? Tell your mom and dad that I've got the weekend open and they can use me however they would like. Fun site, Jeff!

Hi Kerstin! I sure missed you in Sunday School today. We just wanted you to know that we are thinking of you and McKinsey and your Mommy & Daddy. We pray for you every day!! You've GOT to tell me where you got the fuzzy slippers...they are too cool! My mom and dad send you a big hug.
Sleep to you soon.

It looks like you are getting cozy in your new room. I love your chair, fuzzy slippers, and fairy pillow case. We are thinking and praying for you daily. We sure missed your beautiful smile at church yesterday. We are so happy that your parents set up this sight so we can see that pretty smile each and every day. Brent, Alex, Ben and I want to wish you a Happy Halloween. Below are some jokes Ben and Alex thought you might like.

What is a monster's favorite food?
Ghoul scout cookies

What do goblins and ghosts drink when they're hot and thirsty on Halloween?

What do skeletons say before they begin dining?
Bone appetit !

What kind of mistakes do spooks make?
Boo boos

Take care and we'll talk to you soon. Please tell McKinsey and your mom and dad hello.

Happy Halloween! Kerstin- happy to see you get to decorate your room abit. Do the nurses wear costumes on Halloween? Do they let you trick or treat in the hospital? What do you want to dress up as? We made Emme a batgirl costume last night. Hugs to you all - Patty, Michael, Elsa and Emme.

Kerstin - Happy Halloween! We had a party today and made cards for you. McKinsey will bring them to you. We also had a relay race outside where you had to carry an egg on a spoon. Luckily it was a hard boiled egg because it got dropped a lot! We played 'Pin the Stem on the Pumpkin'. McKinsey won! We also tried to see how many words we could make out of the word scarecrow. You should have your Mom and Dad try this! Kelsea got 21 words! We also worked on a secret project just for you. Your friend Laurie Brunner is in charge of this and we think you will really like it. Get well soon!

Aunt Sandi said...

Boo! Tricks or treats, Kerstin. :) Casey & Kenna had fun tonight - until Kenna "Tinker Bell" threw up on the curb! Tummy bug ... Not pretty. Casey wants to send you some of his candy. Tell your mom to let us know when we can mail it! :) Love, love, love, Aunt Sandi & all

I hope you can speed read and keep up with all these comments! I also hope your day went well. I saw the movie Wallace and Grommet today and I bet you would get a laugh out of that movie! Garrett thought it was pretty funny! We are thinking of you everyday and are very proud of you! I will try and give you a call tomorrow. I know you are busy little girl, do you have a secretary that answers the phone for you? ;) May God bless you with sweet dreams tonight.


Pat P. said...

Hi, Kerstin! Happy Halloween. I work with your mom, and I've been thinking about you and your family. I think it's great that you have your very own web site so people can check up on you and drop you a note. I have a sixth grade friend who goes to Children's for treatments. She has a web site just like you do. Maybe you will get to meet her some day at the hospital. Take care of yourself. Pat

Dear Kerstin,

Get better soon! I am going to draw a picture for you. To Kerstin, From Ellen

Erica said...

Hey Kerstin!

I'm so happy I can visit you anytime I want and read how you are doing. I'm working VERY hard on my thesis right now so I can't get away much. I sent this link to my sister so she can keep up on your progress, too! (Nice job on the website, Jeff.)

Many (gentle) hugs to you, McKinsey and your parents!

Love - Erica

HI Kerstin!

Sounds like you had a rough day today. Try to think when you feel icky, you know the medicine is doing its job. I wish you didn't have to go through this...but I will continue to say a prayer for you and your family.

Take care my friend!

I love your picutre with the Wizard of Oz crew!

Hope you feel better soon!

Hi Kerstin! I love your pictures. I hope you had a Happy Halloween. I didn't get to dress up because I was doing homework. My mom and I are going to come see you soon. We sure do miss you, but we know you are getting better! I am thinking about you all the time, and praying for you constantly. We love you! Tell your big sister and parents hello.
Love, Jenny and Sheila
