Hey all, just thought I would pop in a quick update on Phil.

He is still in hospital, but on the third floor now (its a crazy maze up there!!) cause there are no free beds on the kids ward.

His nausea has been brought under control and he has just been resting....from the nausea and not drinking he doesn't have heaps of voice. We thought he was asleep today and then someone told a funny story and he smirked and then was grinning from ear to ear. So while he is sleepy/resting his eyes most of the time, it is nice to see him comfortable and not much pain.

He has been given a second syringe driver which is giving him a continuous dose of an anti-nausea drug that I have forgotten the name of.....

That's all I can think of for now.

Melinda got her grad applications in and had her last exam today. Jenny, Melinda and Dad are staying in the city tonight have just gone and seen Wicked for Jenny's birthday.

Thankyou for your prayers. I know for me personally and I'm sure it's the same for my other siblings to that it is rather hard to focus on the looming LARGE assessment tasks at the moment. Please don't pray for people to be generous with extensions, please pray for us to be able to focus to get them done and out of the way :)

Well I had better go sleep so I can actually study!

Love, Kris (took me three goes to type my name correctly!)
