Kim is Home and Doing Well

Kim had her surgery on Wednesday!  It was originally scheduled for noon - but it was finally around 1:30 p.m. when she went in for the operation.  It was a three hour surgery and by 5:00 p.m. she was back up to her room getting settled for the night.  According to Kim's Mom Fern, the doctor said that there were "no surprises", that they were able to perform the surgery without any complications, and are now waiting on lab results to determine just exactly what the next plan or step will be for Kim.  She was released from the hospital yesterday and arrived home about 6:00 p.m. last night.  She has come home with three drains which allow the fluid to be released from the incisions, but Fern indicated that the liquid is already beginning to be clear and so hopefully she will not have to have them be apart of her for long.  In usual Kim style she is positive, grateful and appreciative of each of you and your kind thoughts and prayers in her and her families behalf.  We will all wait anxiously for Kim to add the next post!  We love you Kim and continue to learn from you through each step of this journey!  You Are Amazing!!


  1. Hey Kim,
    You are in my thoughts today. I was reading a book the other day wherein the quote was given, "Every adversity carries with it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit."

    The author was in the midst of a great adversity and wondered what "potential benefits" could come of it. One night, he started to make a list. The list started out a little sarcastic in nature, but soon his list grew to contain "over 60 potential benefits" - "every one of which ultimately came true."

    I've been thinking about that and the fact that "there is opposition in all things" and "for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction". We know these statements are true.

    At any rate, if you believe all of this (above) - you must have some mighty things in store for you!!
    Lots of love,

  2. Kim,

    We are sending you our love and lots of prayers and hugs. we hope that you can recover quickly from this surgery and be up and going again. You are such an inspiration to us all.

    Love you tons!!
