Yikes I slept too long! I wanted to be back at the hospital early! So now I have to rush. But it does warm my heart that I saw a comment from Kevin down here around 3 am.
Wow. Kevin gave me the wrong password so I didn't think I'd be able to post anything but I finally figured it out. Here I am after an incredibly long day. Lots of tears and here at the end a lot, an immeasurable amount of joy!!! He made it through the surgery and is feeling good. He remembers all of us, he was moving his fingers into guitar chord shapes, reciting jazz chord triads and extensions. We even sang a Led Zeppeling tune together in ICU. He's happy, he knows all of his loved ones, he remembers his music and he's so happy to be here! And I'm so happy I can't stop crying. Tomorrow after some sleep I will try to give you all more details. For the time being all is, well as good as can be under the circumstances. And we are both so grateful for everyones support. Much love, and talk to you tomorrow.

Sorry about the wrong password! It's 2:30am and kinda boring in the icu. Oh well. Thanks everyone for the thoughts and prayers. It seems to have worked!!!

Jai, I haven't met you, but I've heard a lot about you for quite some time. I'm Kevin's aunt, Rodney's sister, and I'm so glad you are posting information about Kevin. His father keeps me updated, but it is really good to hear from your perspective, too. Thank you.

Jai thank you so much for the update. Please give Kevin a hug from me and ask him to give you a hug from me. Congratulations, Kevin, for a successful surgery. Now Jai go take a nap. =)

It's me, Kevin, but with a brain tumor. Disclaimer: I have a very dry and twisted sense of humor. This is a scary situation. The jokes ("tumor humor") could be a little dark from time to time. I intend to keep this rather interesting for you, but if I get a "how could you SAY that?!?" response from you, know it's just, well, I hesitate to use "gallows" humor, but I don't have better phrase for it. Enjoy, and thanks for your support through this time.
