Update From Aunt Kathy
Kim was having some trouble breathing yesterday and the chest xray showed a large amount of fluid in Kim's lungs, so they did a procedure that drained the fluid from her lungs. It was not a comfortable procedure for Kim, but she should now be able to breathe easier. Her lower extremity and abdomen swelling is better. She has received TPN (Total Parenteral Nutrition) the past few days and there is more discussion about placing a feeding tube. They are trying to get her stable enough to do chemo this week.
