Mark's Journal Updated and topped up




The following is a Journal that Mark is creating for Rehab. He wrote it all:-)

Mark Shilts Journal,

Friday, December 04, 2009
Yay! I started my journal.

Saturday, December 05, 2009
Got keyboard add on to make it easier to type.

Sunday, December 06, 2009
Read book. Clive Cussler’s Corsair and watched football.

Monday, December 07, 2009
I had to set the key board so that the font size was smaller or I tend to overshoot characters. This Might be part of the vision cut issue .

Tuesday, December 08, 2009
Had three sessions in rehab and they kicked my butt. I am rid of the walker YAY! I have homework.. BooHiss! I should write more in my journal and I need to move it to Carolyn's partition so we can make it easy to send to Blair.

Wednesday, December 09, 2009
Almost done with my book. Major homework. I do not know if I can finish it all. The mental stuff makes my brain hurt and tires me more than walking so we walked a lot. We took the two dogs on one of our walks and will never do that again. Even though they were on leashes, they pulled Carolyn all over the place. Watched news and discussed Global Warming. All for now.

Argus has a blog located here http://arguscollingwood.blogspot.com/

Thursday, December 10, 2009
PT/ST/OT day three hours of Special High Intensity Training. Kelly had a volunteer working with us. Blair had more homework and was told I should work in 20-30 minute sessions that I time. Sharon took me shopping at Von’s where I sought out items on a shopping list, Then we walked back at a double time pace. I think she was simply trying to kick my butt, because I was really tired after our session LOL. Honestly though, I always feel better after these sessions.
This weekend I’ll try to finish the list.

Friday, December 11, 2009
Recovered from Thursday, worked on some homework and walked with Carolyn. We went out to dinner at the Fish Market and ordered a fish & chips combo plate. I also ordered a cup of chowder.
All in all it was a very good day.


Saturday, Dec. 12th.
Went on a couple of walks, and did some homework.
Got a Verizon wireless modem but it did not have enough horsepower for Second Life so it is going back. We are supposed to get a fast connection on Thursday. Yay!


Sunday, December 13, 2009
I walked, did some homework. Dad and I went to a car show my Uncle Ted was in at a High School. That was a nice outing for the guys. Then we watched San Diego beat the Cowboys on the telly. A full day!

Monday, December 14, 2009
Did more homework, found all the scavenger hunt items Carolyn had picked for me to seek out. Played my V-drums, walked and watched the news. Tuesday, my nephew Alex is driving our VW Rabbit down to here so we will have a car to use. YAY!! Carolyn has posted my Journal on her blog. I better keep it clean. LOL


Tuesday, December 15, 2009
The cable guys came to dig the trench for Time Warner fast connection. I spent the morning in PT/ST/OT and they once again made me work like I expected. Pooped after that but, I am anxious to get the car down here and the internet faster so I can talk with our Second Life friends.


Wednesday, December 16, 2009
Our nephew AJ arrived with our car at about 7 AM and then he slept for three hours then Carolyn took him to the airport while the cable guy wired the house. YAY!! We have fast internet and I logged into Second Life for the first time since October. I spoke with our dear friends, Raven, Panther and Rosie. What a joy!! Carolyn limited my access so I would not get over tired. Thanks DAD and De, it was so nice to chat again with our SL family. Red sent me an instant message and that was great too.

Thursday, December 17, 2009
Kelly was sick today but Blair and Sharon made up for her absence;-) Carolyn and I went to get me a watch but the one we got sucks so we will seek out a Timex later. I had a Starbucks Mocha and scone then we stopped at McDonalds and had lunch. Having our own car here is a great thing. I know we are both homesick and will be very happy to get to our own house, hopefully in the near future. I spent some SL time seeing Raven DJ at our club and spoke with dear friends. Miss that too.


Friday, December 18, 2009
Am going for a ride with Uncle Ted and Dad at 11:00 so am resting up for it. Carolyn had the couch throw her in the middle of the night and hit her right cheek. She will probably have a shiner. [“I didn’t do it” LOL]The ride was great fun. We saw some classic cars and ate lunch too. A great time was had by all.


Saturday, December 19, 2009
Now that we have hi-speed internet, I can jump into Second Life and talk with my friends. What a treat it is to see folks, hear their voices and know that I can still operate my avatar and all the things I’ve learned are not gone but waiting to be re-activated. Went to Raven’s gig at our club, Echo Echo and had a great time.


Sunday, December 20, 2009
Did some homework and watched a lot of football. The Chargers won in the last minute of the game. WTG!! Also saw our friends Friendly Fire play at our club in SL and watched a bit of Joce’s Madness and Mayhem set. I wish my rehab team, Blair, Kelly and Sharon could access SL to see what potential it has for many patients.


Monday, December 21, 2009

Homework.. blah! Read my book and watched the two palm trees get cut down. We are going to see the Del Mar Christmas Lights thing tonight. My doctor’s appointment is January 12th and hopefully he will clear me to leave the area and we can continue rehab closer to home. I like it here, but there is no place like home

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Rehab elves got their treats of chocolate, cookies, chocolate and more chocolate;-) Worked on stuff, bought cupcake mix [actually cake mix] and spent $5.38 with Sharon. We stopped at Starbucks and Marshall’s on the way home. A good day!


Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Well the septic tank is fubar so many plumbers were called. Oh boy, we have a smelly situation here. LOL Went to Starbucks and then Solana Beach to see the surfers and folks enjoying the beach. I love the ocean smell. I’m getting excited about going home in January to do Rehab local to the house. Happy Holidays, everyone.:-)


Thursday, December 24, 2009
Septic tank pumped out and fixed while we were at Rehab. All my teachers were great and worked my butt and brain as usual. Due to poor execution, my cupcakes were not done so the folks after got to eat them. LOL Went to the beach [we decided to make that a daily event] and had a wonderful dinner.


Friday, December 25th, 2009
Eggs Benedict for breakfast woohoo!!
A great Christmas day spent with family at Ted and Delma’s home with Scott, Steve, Bea, Stevie, Cheyenne, Skylar, Dad and De plus Carolyn and me  Turkey, ham and all the fixings were consumed with relish. What a great time. San Diego won yet again. No homework for me LOL.


Saturday, December 26, 2009

Beach to feed gulls and pigeons and Starbuck’s for a three pump mocha. Life is good. Second Life friends are great too and we are trying to stop in from time-to-time to connect. They are in our thoughts daily and when we get home to the many computer place, we can spend lots of quality time in-world with our family.

Sunday, December 27, 2009

Did my decimal homework and boy, I just can’t subtract atm. Wonder when I will get that back? Rehab is sort of frustrating to me but I know it is helping. I guess everyone goes through the doubts and I will get through it too. We spent some time in SL with friends at the club. Joce did some great sets and we all enjoyed her tune choices.


Monday, December 28, 2009

We spent some time going to stores. We bought me some new jeans and more shirts. It’s tough only having one pair of jeans and now I have two. LOL The Monday night football game was exciting but I wish the Vikings had won.


Tuesday, December 29, 2009
Rehab!! Clocks make my brain hurt. On the up side, Togo makes a great hot pastrami sandwich and the beach was nice. I am very anxious to go North and home before the kittens all grow up.

Wednesday, December 30, 2009
Took and series of rides. Vente mochas, REI returns, beach trips and general outings that make the days pass by smoothly.


Thursday, December 31, 2009

Blair and Sharon were not at rehab but Joel and Kelly took care to make sure I was getting my fair share of growth, LOL. We spent New Year’s Eve in Second Life at our club with Joce and Adrian taking round one and Raven and Gussie taking round two. Saw lots of friends and had a great time sharing the laptop [we are not fond of the size of it though] with Argus and at the strike of Midnight LL reset our sim and we crashed. Typical LOL!! Happy New Year! It will be a better one I am sure.


Friday, January 1, 2010

Happy New Year folks! Hopefully this one will be much better than the last year. Can anyone say Football? OMG game after game. Dad’s friends Peggy and Jay are here from Canada and what a nice couple they are. A blessing that they came and what a fun time for The Trapped Shilts Family Eating Team;-)


Saturday, January 2, 2010

Eat Eat Eat!! More football and trips to Starbucks and the beach. We also drove to Lake Hodges and that was a pretty drive. Being out and about is helping me normalize and feel more like myself. Analog clockwork sucks though. Spent time in SL with friends too.

Sunday, January 3, 2010
More Football watched. San Diego won again woohoo! Food shared, laughs shared and a nice ride to the beach with Carolyn rounded out our day.


Monday, January 04, 2010

Got my records from Scripps and am so ready for the doctor to give an all clear. I have a DVD and other format images of my scans for my 1/12 appointment and am making a list of questions to ask the doctor. Like when will my skull get closed? You know, trivial stuff LOL. I finished my Blair homework and you can see it above. Carolyn is teaching me what I taught her many years ago. Good thing I am an excellent teacher;-)


Tuesday, January 05, 2010

Is there ever going to be an end to football bowls? I guess not LOL. Carolyn and I have decided to find the perfect San Diego Area Donut shop. The first one was in Solana Beach and rated a 7 out of 10 due to the grease factor. We also went to the beach and did our normal Starbucks trips bringing our card up to green level status. WooHoo!


Wednesday, January 06, 2010
The best donuts so far are on Mira Mesa near the Kohl’s store. Carolyn got me some socks at Marshalls. Dad and De are going away to Palm Desert with Peggy and Jay. They really deserve a get-away and will return next week. I am excited about my doctor’s appointment and hope that we will get some of our burning questions answered.


Thursday, January 07, 2010

Rehab! It seems the better I get the more I have a burning desire to craft my own rehab;-) Sharon is now engaged [lucky guy who is getting her] and Kelly and Blair put me through my paces. One pooped puppy met Carolyn at the door and demanded his mocha. LOL Carolyn got stuff to make her famous spaghetti. YUMMY!


Friday, January 08, 2010

I have been reflecting on my Tumor “journey” and have decided that the day I knew I would be ok was when Rod [SCIU Nurse] played his guitar and sang to me. I knew everything would be fine as he opened my emotions through music. Bless His Heart. Remembering that still chokes me up. He is an angel and Scripps is lucky to have him.


Saturday, January 09, 2010

It has been great planning on getting back to the bay area and home. My gosh, we have lots of stuff to put in the wabbit;-) I’ve been thinking about what I want to do when we get back to our big puters with fast connections. I’m planning my first DJ set and have decided that I want to perform live in SL too. I am a perfectionist, so do not expect me to jump into that first thing. LOL Talked with Angie-baby and it was great to hear her voice I thank all of you for reading my Journal and leaving comments.

Happiest of Holidays to all


May you all have the happiest of Holidays and know that each and everyone one of you is a Star in the Galaxy of our Universe. <33333 Special Thanks to Panther for the beautiful card, of course Argy had to Silverize it;-)

Hi all, we have an internet Verizon thingie that connects us but not to SL. Hopefully on Thursday we will have a Time Warner Hot Spot that will allow us to access SL WooHoo!! We are excited. Mark is improving steadily and thanks you all for your prayers and support. Wonder if I can now upload a photo of the flowers the CCAotF sent. YAY!! it worked. Love and hugs <333

Thursday, December 10, 2009

Homework.. Yuck ;-)

We are at Rehab again and so I am updating the blog. Lots of brain work and walking involved. All the ladies that are doing the rehab are great and they give Mark a workout. Bless their hearts. Blair, Kelly and Sharon are true stars. Thanks to all who are leaving comments and supporting us through all this. We really love you all and Mark hopes to get back online so you won't forget him, as if you could lol. Ok signing off to do some Xstreet work. <333

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Progress.. we make progress

We are here at Rehab where Mark had his PT Evaluation and is doing ST and OT now. We are in Medi-cal Limbo but it will all work oput eventually. Meanwhile we will be a cash customer. I'm selling The Kid, any buyers? lol j/k Anyway thanks again for all the support and prayers, we really appreciate it. <3333

Thursday, December 3, 2009

Rehab Yes Yes Yes

Hihi Everyone, I will be updating the blog on Tuesdays and Thursdays while Mark is doing one hour each of ST/PT/OT. We got Medi-cal WooHoo now we just need the disability and we'll be doing great. I tried to upload a photo of Mark's Snowboard helmet that he wears but the bandwidth constraints at Scripps are pretty low so just imagine my guy looking very dapper in a black helmet. Panther my be able to upload it as I sent oit to her phone too. Check her blog and tyty to her for updating too. SWe thank all of you for the prayers and support and are working our way towards the return to home base. <3333

Outpatient Rehab!! Tomorrow discharge to Del Mar

Mark is being discharged tomorrow, we will go to De & Ev's place in Del Mar and setup an evaluation with Scripps Outpatient Rehab unit to see our next course of action. Bless all of you who have been praying and Bless Doctor Tung, Ed R., Amber OT, the dynamic Duo [PT] and all the angels at Scripps who have helped us get to the next level. We would not have gotten this far without them and all our families and friends. Thanks for all the continued prayers, they really work. <3333

They Say It's Your Birthday:-)

Mark turns 22+33 today and he is happy to be recovering from this Life Changing Event with all his family and friends praying for his welfare. Bless you all!! Day by day he improves. The Dynamic Duo PT team are giving him a workout atm, so I am updating the blog. Wish I could post pictures, but the bandwidth limits at the hospital are just too small to allow that. Things are lining up to make the transition to Rehab a very simple process and we will do whatever it takes to get past that and home for good. We miss you all and love you very much. <3333

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Progress/ Flowers& Chocolate

Mark is making such good progress that he may be able to skip Acute Rehab and do Outpatient Rehab while we stay at De & Ev's Del Mar home. WONDERFUL NEWS!! Bless all of you for praying and sending your good thoughts along. We love you all very much<333 Mark got an early B-day present from our very own CCAOTF beauties [T,Jenn,Lori,Deb,Cheryl,Angie bless your hearts] I'm not sure Mark will share the chocolate, but that's aok with me lol;-) Continued thanks to all and keep those prayer going, they really work. <333 P.S. no he did not change into Eric Clapton lol Drat the photo will not upload here!!

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Little Drummer Boy

Mark is looking forward to getting a drum set together as part of his rehab and his PT Amber thinks that is a great idea. We are waiting to get into an Acute Rehab unit in the area, so please dot all your I's and cross your T's and offer a prayer to the Saint of Paperwork and one to Saint Jude would not hurt either. Everyday Mark improves. He is doing great and making super progress. Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers and support. It means the world to us. <3333

Think Small

Mark continues to get better daily and may soon be ready to rehab. Where we do that is still up in the air, but we will do what ever it takes to get him working on all levels again. Everyone please think small, by this I mean think the remaining tumor smaller, visualize it shrinking. Mark is using both arms, both legs and although his left side is still weaker than his right his OT and PT are amazed he has come this far in such a short time. Please put in a good word with the paperwork god/goddess/fairy that will expedite the paperwork to get him on Disability/Medi-Cal ;-) Thanks again to everyone for all the support/prayers/good thoughts. We really appreciate it in more ways than you know. You are all Stars and Angels. <333

Update: please add some healing thoughts to those requests. It's not always easy to overcome things alone, but when there are many I take solace in knowing that so many of you out there cherish Mark as much as I do and you all know that we two are truly mated & soul-mates forever.

Thursday, November 12, 2009

In La Jolla update all is well:-)

I am at the hospital and Mark sends you all his best. He is improving daily and is a good patient;-) Have left voice mail for the "paperpeople" and await a page/call from them so they can get started on getting him Medi-cal. The SS forms are signed by Mark [he is writing left handed and his signature looks great YAY] and need to be mailed back. They want our marriage certificate and said they will return it. [eek they better] So I thought I would update the blog. Mark has a buzz cut atm but it's growing back, when I said I would shave my head in support, he said NO!! lol Anyway his spirits are great and he says thanks to all who are praying and thinking of him. Bless you all and love ya very much <3333

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Update The Return Of The Argus

Tomorrow on Veteran's & Remembrance Day, I return to the Land of Scripps and the love of my life. Farr is improving daily and now eats with his left hand and is getting movement back in all areas. YAY!!! Hopefully we will be able to rehab in record speed and return home ASAP. Thanks so much to our wonderful family and friends. You all ROCK!!

As usual Raven, Gussie, Panther, Gunny and Cisco are in charge of all things van Eyck and Echo Echo. They are true stars Bless Them.

Keep your eye on my blog for updates.

Taking Care of Business Part II

Well, Mark and his Dad are spending lots of bonding time together which is really great. His dad got the Mega Minutes Verizon Plan and so phone time will be very cost effective. I spoke with SS and they are mailing me the proper forms for Mark to sign and fax back to them which means I am now waiting for the Birth Certificate and the Claim form. If the Birth Cert Vendor does not give me a tracking number, I may just drive to Alameda and pick up another one. [where are the smilies and rolleyes icons when ya need them lol] Mark has been speaking with some of our dear friends from SL and of course family and loving every phone call. Sometimes he remembers that we've called so short term memory is getting better. Long term memory is fine except for things like Birthdays and Wedding Anniversary Celebrations [he never could put those into long term even before the tumor anyway ;-)] but I think most men are like that. His mobility is improving and he is focused on getting better. GO MARK!!Thanks so much for all the wonderful outpouring of thoughts, kind words and prayers. We really appreciate it and are Blessed with a circle of family and friends that is truly Golden. <3333

Taking Care of Business

I am home until Sunday getting all the paperwork ducks in a row for aid with the Social Security, Medi-Cal and Disability sectors. It is a tough process, but I have great support here. I actually was able to even design some clothes for the Winterfest Showcase in Second Life and that was very good for my creative side. Bless all our SL friends and all of you readers of this blog. When I first started this blog, it was just going to be another Fashion Blog but now I find myself using it for a much higher purpose. The Internet is a wonderful place and I thank Al Gore for inventing it [j/k] ;-) Spoke with Mark several times yesterday and he was upbeat and very much himself. He is having some short term memory issues, but that is to be expected with this recovery. He actually said that his short term memory has always been bad the other day and he's right. Got to love the blond-be-here-now guy. My Zen hubby. I want to thank everyone again for all the support, prayers and good thoughts. We will survive and thrive this life changing event. Bless you all <333

Home for the paperwork

After bidding Mark a good day, the Tres Amigas hopped into the Ford Truck and with Stormy at the wheel set off for Northern California. We made great time and I am now at home gathering papers to get Mark setup on SS Disability and Medi-Cal. Hopefully it will all go smooth when I return to La Jolla and we will start the process to get him into Rehab. I spoke with Mark on the phone and he sounded great. I know he is in good hands and will miss my Hospital Angels and traveling companions. In spite of all the adverse things happening, we three had a real YaYa bonding time and Bless their hearts for being there. <333

Monday, November 2, 2009

Food, it does a body good;-)

Mark fed himself breakfast with his right hand this morning and did a great job. Only problem was lining up the milk straw without reading glasses. They sealed up his med-via-throat site and noiw he gets everything through a tube in his right wrist. It hurts but can be iced and that helps a lots. FIL & wife are on the road and should be here sometime tonight which means we will leave tomorrow morning. The hospital is on elevated H1N1 alert so only four folks a day can have access to the hospital. Stormy and Gloria are out to lunch with Aunt Delma and Uncle Ted and are bringing me back some iced tea. Things are looking aok and the rehab phase I is in swing. Have yet to speak with doc today, but will be sure to do that before taking off tomorrow. Thanks again for all the wonderful words of support and prayers. You are all angels in my book;-) <333

Moving Day Mrs Brisby

Today we are moving to PCU = Post Critical Unit on 4th floor. We think it will be room 404 but will confirm that later. Let the re-hab begin. Our most favorite nurse ever, Rod played his guitar for us in Mark's room. We all cried it was so touching. Music does heal and sooth. Rod is a true star, playing to ICU patients to lift their souls. He used to play in bars but then said who wants to play for drunks when so many patients would benefit more. I agree! It was great seeing Mark tap out the songs with his right hand and leg. Mark's left side is weak and although he has feeling, it will take time and rehab to bring back control. We have all been on a roller coaster of emotions and thankfully we have each other to be strong. When we get Mark in his new room I will set this computer up for him and then I will find a way to update from there. Many many thanks to all who are praying and helping out. We are truly blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family. More later <3333

Steady progress

Mark is doing aok and making steady progress. I am going to have to go North to get some paperwork and will not do this until FIL & his wife get here from Oregon. Stormy, Gloria and I will then head north. The Tres Amigas travel like geese;-) I'm going to try to setup a donate button here because folks have requested it. But not yet;-)

On Target to attain Phase II

The doctor was just here [what a whirlwind of information he is] and said Mark is right on target to get transferred to a Real Room out of SICU and on a program to regain strength. Re-Hab coming in the future and all is well at this time. He caught Mark up on what happened in the last week and said that Mark is 100% himself with a sense of humor and awareness. MRI will be coming to assess the situation. Thanks everyone for all the prayers, words of wisdom and continued support. Have a Trick & a Treat on Mark;-) <3333

A little footnote: the wing Mark is in at Scripps is the Perry wing;-)

No Tricks, just treats!

Today they decided that Mark may now eat real food. YAY!! So we filled out the menus for today and tomorrow. We circled everything;-) lol not really but we did check many items. Mark continues to improve. His spirit, good nature and winning personality are 100% intact. Thanks so much for all of your prayers, words of encouragement and support. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful extended family and we value each and every one of you. When I told Mark about the all the wonderful things you are all doing, we had a kleenex moment together. Awaiting word about Phase II from the doctors and in a holding pattern. Take each moment and savor it and know that we love you all <3333

YAY We have Voice!! The Creature Talks:-)

Mark is talking and 100% himself!! He said "Hi Sweetie!" and all my fears went away. We can master anything that follows. He thanks each and every one of you for all your prayers, kindness and good thoughts. No headaches but his rear end hurts from being prone for so long lol;-) He is getting hiccups but heck he always got those and it's hard to get rid of them when your diaphram is cramped. He looks good with his hair short but it's wrapped in bandages still so the full effect is not visible yet. He said he's bored which is a good thing. The Tres Amigas are doing happy dances and shedding tears of joy. Now the healing process begins. We will know more what Phase II is and will keep you all posted. Say what you will about the Internet but without it, we would not be able to spread good news and share our sorrows and joys so swiftly. I will post more as it becomes known. Prayers work and Blessings to ALL <3333

Breathing Easy & soon we will TALK !!

The doctor says that sometime today Mark will have the breathing tube removed and then after his throat stops hurting we may be able to hear him talk!! YAY!! Right now he is using hand signals to communicate with us and since his hands are tied, it's tough... we are so looking forward to have him be able to talk. As I write this in the ICU waiting room, there is a prayer circle for a family whose "Mom" is in CCU [Cardiac Care] and is not doing well at all. We wish them peace and healing. Support in tough times is so important and we feel blessed that so many care for Mark. Thanks to all of you<3333

All Is Well We Have Shunt and tomorrow maybe voice

Just spoke with the doctor, the shunt is in place and Mark is resting in SICU recovery. Everything went according to plan, and tomorrow we may get to have the breathing tube removed. So Phase I is over and now on to healing. We are pooped here in non-sedated land but very relieved. Thanks everyione for all the prayers and caring. I'll write more tomorrow. Love you all <33333

Awake, Aware, Amused too;-

Tomorrow Mark will have a shunt placed to relieve brain pressure. This is common and needed for conditions like this. The condition we are dealing with is a Benign tumor of the Pineal gland area. It was the size of a baseball last week and now has been reduced by a great deal. We will not know what the final figure is until the swelling goes down and they get a great clear scan. No wonder my sweetie had headaches. Ouch!! So, if any of you are having headaches, balance issues and concentration issues, please go it it checked out!! Today they changed his meds that are keeping him in the Twilight-Maui-Brain-Vacation to something less "heavy" and when I went to see him his eyes opened, he held my hand and smiled. I told him of all the blessings and greetings and prayers being said all over the Metaverse from Facebook to Myspace to Second Life and he waved back many kudos. I then told him the World's Cutest Kitten [Darwin] wanted to come but it was against Scripps Rules and he was laughing [without noise as he is still "tubed"] Major YAYs!!! I want to thank each and everyone of you for caring about Mark. You all ROCK and many hearts!

Holding pattern still

Mark continues to respond well to treatment even though we can tell he just wants to get out of Dodge;-) They are keeping him in a twilight state so that the swelling can continue to go down without any jarring actions he might attempt. I will be speaking with the doctor after he gets out of another operation he's doing today. He wants to put in a permanent shunt from brain to belly area so it can drain away as needed. I will know more later. Thanks for your prayers and wishes.

Situation normal and holding steady

The doctor is keeping Mark in a sedated state as they reduce the swelling and drain fluids from the operation area. FIL is on plane to Oregon to get things in order to come back down to the Del Mar house for the winter. Today when the nurse repositioned him, Mark gave her a thumbs up!!! Major cheering and the staff here is just wonderful. So we are the Three Amigas here and are taking turns being at the hospital. They did a CAT scan yesterday and the results are looking good and as expected. It's a waiting game and the song "I Want To Be Sedated" now has a very timely meaning. I will update as situations change. Thank you all for caring and prayers and comments. I will try to answer emails in a timely fashion ;-) I have Mark's cell and it is always on. Love you all <3333

Still Sedated but doing fine

The doctor has decided to keep Farr/Mark in a sedated condition through the weekend. His signs are good, the swelling is going down and has functionality of all parts but his left leg and side are not as storng as his right. That is from the surgery and area of brain worked on. Since he's always been able to use both sides as a drummer this long term issue can be overcome with re-hab. So, we are waiting in various areas of the Scripps area and update when we can. Keep those prayers coming and thanks to all for all the kind words and offers of help. Please point other friends and relatives to this page.. since there is no Facebook and MySpace and Forum access here, this is the only way I can communicate to you all.<33333

Still in Holding pattern

Farr is still sedated and in ICU they have here for surgery patients. They will bring him back slowly as his brain "got angry" and threw the surgeons out. They removed a large part of the tumor but we will not know how much until the swelling goes down. Thanks to all who have emailed and passed along prayers. I can't get to Facebook or Myspace but will update here. Am coping along with my FIL, Farr's sis Stormy and his mom. Pass this link on to our friends and keep thinking good thoughts<3333

Argus & Farr @ Scripps

In San Diego waiting for doctor. Mark is in SICU still being brought back slowly. There is swelling and so they are keeping him sedated. This is the only website I can reach from the hospital computer. Long story of why we are here can be found out by either calling my sis or reading this blog and I can get mail on my argus.collingwood@gmail.com account. Prayers are always good and know that we love you all. <33333
