February 2, post from "the Mom"

Kim asked me to update her blog today. As you read on the last blog, Kim wasn't feeling too well. She had an infection at the incision site that caused her some grief (and anxiety on my part) for quite a few days. In fact, she usually has about 12 'good' days between her chemo treatments. Not so this last time! She only had about 4 of the 'good' days...so this time, she's not bouncing back as fast. Of course, as the treatments continue, she seems to get a little more tired and it's taking a bit longer for her to get back to her perky self. We're hoping the "little abscess pocket" will correct itself but she knows now what to do if it recurs. Anyway, the numbers came back today...107 from 150. She was hoping it would be in the double digits but we'll take 107. They are continuing to drop! She is going to have more than the 6 treatments originally scheduled...possibly 7, 8 or 9...however many her body can tolerate the toxicity and the numbers are decreasing. We are so grateful for all of your prayers...we know that our Father in Heaven is hearing every one of them, that He knows Kim and each one of us personally. We are grateful for the good medical care that is available for her. The advancements just in the past 2-5 years are amazing.

Kim is the most amazing gal I know....she teaches me every day that I'm with her by her Christlike example! What an honor to be her Mom As her Mom (and Dad and siblings) we thank everyone of you that have been and continue to be Angels...for all of the meals, help with the kids, help with the house and everything else that you do....especially the prayers.
We dearly love every one of you! Fern
