Dear Friends and Family,
Just an update on Kerstin’s condition. The chemo is really starting to take its toll on her now: physically and mentally. She has very little energy and no appetite. She does have brief moments of “pep”, but they are cut short by fatigue. During the past couple days we have also watched our energetic and spirited little girl slip in to a state of depression. Her doctors state this is a normal part of the disease, but that doesn’t make it any easier. As much as we would love to have visitors to help cheer her up, we are asking that she does not receive any visitation until further notice. She is finishing up her last dose of chemo tonight for this cycle and it is now that she is at her most vulnerable for getting sick from the common germs carried by most healthy people.
Annie and Jeff are still able to see visitors though. We would welcome a friendly face and would be happy to sit down in the 6th floor waiting room to visit for a few minutes. All we ask is that you call ahead to see what is going on at the time (402-955-5400). We would feel bad if you stopped by and we were not available to see you because we were busy with Kerstin.
We want to thank everyone again for the prayers, good thoughts, and gifts. We continue to be overwhelmed and humbled by the out pouring of love and thoughtfulness from friends, family, and friends of friends and family. God is truly taking care of us and we hope that he is looking after you as well.
Jeff and Annie Leaf
