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.

Kim,

I have been following your blog and I continue to pray for you daily. My own journey with Stage 4 Colon Cancer began at Banner Estrella on July 2nd of this year after a visit to the ER with Stomach pains. It was a shocking diagnosis for everyone as I am only 34 years old. I just wanted to let you know that I pray for you and we will beat cancer.
