Kim's journey

Kim was diagnosed last Thursday, September 16, 2010 with ovarian cancer. As Kim's Family, Friends, Neighbors and Fans - we have started this blog to help share information, updates, support, and love with each other during her next few months of surgery, treatment and healing. We will try to update it whenever we receive information. Please feel free to leave a comment expressing your support, love, and encouragement anytime - as that is how we will all grow and strengthen each other - especially Kim and her family. We love you Kim, and our faith, prayers, and total support and dedication are with you as you embark on this "Journey"!

Faith and Prayers

Today I have been asked by Kim to update her blog.  Since her chemo treatment last Tuesday, she has been struggling a bit with the side affects - they were not able to use the same drugs that were used during her first series of treatments because they began to cause an allergic reaction.  So heading into her first treatment this week - she was not sure what to expect.  Wednesday she was able to be up a bit in between resting and was even able to get a walk in around the block of her subdivision.  Then Thursday was not a good day - she was continuing to feel week, head achey with no energy.  Saturday their family was able to get together for an extended family picture - which was something that they had been planning for months.   Then by Saturday afternoon she was experiencing fever, chills, and aching all over.  In contacting Dr. Prystas, she thought that Kim had either a bacterial or viral infection and prescribed a strong antibiotic for her.  This morning Kim was feeling a little better!

As Kim's family and friends she has requested our faith and prayers in her behalf.  She is scheduled for another chemo treatment this coming Tuesday and really wants to get some strength back going into that second treatment.  We are asking that each of us combine our faith and prayers to match Kim's great faith and please keep her in your thoughts and prayers this week as we prepare to fast on Sunday.  We have definitely been blessed to see miracles in her life this past year - and we know there are more to come for her.

 For those of us who have been able to listen to Conference this weekend - we have definitely been reminded of how each of us are loved and known by our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ.  How blessed we are to have a Prophet - President Monson - that reminded us today in his beautiful talk of the Savior's words - "Fear thou not; for I am with thee; be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."
