January 4th, 2010 (Monday night), Update from Inga

Guten Abend! I hope you all are well. We're a little better today. Ken actually got to eat lunch today. Some tomato soup and of course chocolate milk for dessert.

Our dear sweet Miss Laura is here grilling those doctors. We found out today from the 2 1/2 hour MRI that the tumor HAS NOT infiltrated the trachea! This is really great news. They are talking about a really strong chemo administered once or maybe twice over the next 4-6 weeks. Radiation 5 days a week. Then hopefully surgery shortly thereafter. This next month is going to be intense.

Due to the fact that Ken's immune system is about to drop out from underneath him, please no visitors. I know it's hard not to see him, but the exposure to all who love you can sometimes give you a cold, and even a cold is serious business in the oncology ward. Drop a line in the mail, send flowers or send e-cards from St. John's website home page. (, room 870.) He loves to hear from you all. We love hearing from you, too, so continue to call the family.

Love from Inga


  1. So glad to hear that Ken is eating (if only just a little)! Sent off two cards (snail mail) on Monday. Probably should have just given them to Katelyn - she will probably arrive before they do! We are all praying for you here in the frozen tundra.

  2. Kenny,
    Great news that the tumor hasn't spread! I know that our Lord is behind this and will heal you! I'll keep praying on this end, you keep praying on your end and together with His help, you'll beat this!!!
    I love you Buddy,
