Calling all good folk and true - PLEASE can you focus your highest thoughts, energies and deepest love and support towards Mike & Been Howlett & family and their son Kit, who had a severe reaction to some MDMA on Friday 18th. He is holding on in there with us in coma in a London hospital, on dialyses awaiting an emergency liver transplant.
Tue 29 update:- Kit remains stable, and each night that that occurs is considered an 'improvement', although he remains the most unwell person in unit. Focus should now be on protection from infection as his body needs every possible last ounce of energy to heal itself.
May a large sphere of light continue to surround Kit and may the vibrant and healthy young man you can see in your mind's eye be soon with us once more.
Mon 28 update:- I do have better news today. Time was running out for a transplant but last evening the doctors told us that Kit's liver has just started slowly to regenerate itself. He is by no means out of the woods and is still unconscious on a respirator and is looking at several months in intensive care with all the horrors that that can bring. However, he has made his body start a healing process on the liver and we hope that he can find the strength within himself to protect the rest of himself from infection.
It's the most crazy roller coaster of a nightmare and always one step forward, two steps back. Our fingers are so crossed and we just hope. Thank you all for your kind thoughts. Now we just hope that his body can rally round to fight off the onslaught of infections the world will now throw at him!
Sun 27 update:- Dear Friends - The current state of Kit is that he is in a critical condition but stable. He needs a liver to survive, and his condition is just about good enough to endure the operation. There is a window of a few days before his condition will deteriorate beyond being capable of receiving a transplant. He is on the highest priority list in the UK for a liver which has to be O or B type blood group, and the right size - not too small. All we can do is hope.
Today is my birthday and I have just one thing I wish for - a liver for Kit - so forgive me for asking, but I would be grateful if you could spare a moment and imagine that happy outcome.
On the healing lists, in the thoughts, in the heart, in the mind - Love the one you're with.
Sat 26 update:- There is still no change basic change in Kit's condition and he still awaits a suitable organ, but after several difficult nights he had a much more stable time the night after the above was posted - so keep up the good work.
