Thanks for checking in on this blog! We are hoping to use this to give day to day updates on how KK is doing and start to network together; both for support for her and support for each other.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE at this point DO NOT come to the hospital! KK and the family appreciate immensely how much love and support you want to shower on KK. The absolute BEST thing for her right now is time to rest, heal and figure out how to deal with the pain.
PLEASE, PLEASE DO...send cards, romantic comedy or happy DVD's, or your favorite book on CD, and if you wish money to:
Kelley Kalafatich c/o
You can send cards and letters to the hospital at:

CURRENT UPDATE AS OF 9 AM on November 2, 2007
KK is still trying to get the pain drugs under control. She is resting and her team of pain doctors is trying to find the right combination of meds to keep her awake and alert and out of pain! Progress towards this goal is good and it takes time to get the drugs in her system and see how she reacts.
They are doing another spinal tap later today. They are still trying to identify the specific antigen that is causing the lesion/inflammation on her spinal cord. At this point, the lesion is in the lower lumbar spine and she is still paralyzed from the waist down. The prognosis is still unknow. She may get better; she may not and she won't be out of the woods for it getting worse for another week.
We can not express how much Kelley, her core caregivers and her family appreciate the love and support of all of you!!!!!!
