Hey everyone, it's Deron. Kim wanted to write something tonight but never seemed to get to it. Kim wanted to let you all know she has been doing great the last several days. She has been outside everday for fresh air and tossing pennies in the fountain. Today she had a surprise visit from the kids and she was very excited to see them. As you read they were busy with a birthday party this weekend and weren't around much. The kids were equally excited to see their mother, looking as good as ever.
So moving on to some of the other news she wanted passed on. Kim has been trying to eat as much as possible, which unfortunately is just not very much. She has been offered a feeding tube to be inserted down her nose to help her get the nutrition she needs. Now, knowing this tube will have to be crammed down her nose and into the gut does not sound like her idea of a good time right now. However, she realizes that she is weakened by the malnurishment and is seriously contimplating this procedure. I told her I'd go first, but I can't swallow chewable tylenol. I hope she forgets I told her that !
She had her 9th radiation treatment today and will be finished with this series tomorrow. She had an infection last week and has been on antibiotics, but we still don't know what this infection is. We have a consult with an infectious disease doctor, but have not met him/her yet. This means no chemo this week if there is a chance she still has an infection.
So I'm not a blogger! I think that's all she really wanted me to pass on for now. I'd ask her, but she's passed out.
I would like to say thank you to all of Kim's friends for all of their help. Thanks to all of my friends and family for your continued support. To the hundreds and hundreds of blog followers from Italy, Korea, all over Europe to here at home in the states. Thank you.
Kim will be back soon.
