Hooray!....Chest Tube is Out

The surgeon was able to remove the chest tube late yesterday afternoon and it sounds like the chest xray is looking pretty good. Thankfully, Kim's pain is much less now and she is able to take walks in the hall. There is discussion about Kim going home today and then getting the chemo in Dr. Zafar's office early next week.

Kim, Deron and the family wanted to send out a special thank you to Beth and Jimmy who have been taking care of Dylan and Kiki pretty much non stop the past week and also on a regular basis the past few months. Beth and Jimmy, your kindness is very much appreciated and the family can relax more knowing the kids are being well cared for and having so much fun too! It is people like you that have restored my faith in mankind and again we appreciate your generosity more than words can adequately express.

Regards,
Aunt Kathy

I know she will feel better now and can concentrate on preparing for chemo and healing from surgery. We will say a little prayer and hope that she will go home with Deron today.
As always we are thinking of you all!
Love ,
Gayla and Connor
