Portacath Installed

Kendall had her portacath installed today at Carilion Hospital. The procedure took around 1 1/2 hours and she was allowed to come home early this afternoon. Thanks to Dr Wattsman for taking care of her today with this procedure. Kendall is doing good, just a bit sore as you can imagine. She received a few surprise messages today. One was from Head Football Coach Mike London of UVA who has been corresponding with Kendall since last August. The others came from Lance Armstrong and Doug Ullman of Livestrong with encouraging messages as well. Thanks for keeping her motivated to fight through this illness. Also, wanted to give thanks to the Cave Spring Wrestling team that jogged to our house yesterday to deliver team shirts(see below). Thanks guys and good luck this season. We are so thankful for all of our Team Kendall supporters. You really are making a difference in Kendall’s fight. Kendall we are so proud of you! Thanks again and God Bless.

Forever grateful, ┬áThe Bayne’s

  11. Carol Groves says:

    Yes Bayne family, you all remain in my prayers of course! I know Scott had a GREAT TIME dirt bike riding on Sunday! Hm-m, maybe a bit too much fun! At least it was successful and everyone I know of came home safely! Kendall, as you know you remain on the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church prayer list – there are two. One is published every Sunday and one is for our Prayer Chain – of which I am a part. I’ve asked for a kind of “renewal of faith,” for everyone who is a member of the chain and for our minister to lead it. I know I can certainly use it as I especially pray for you and a lovely friend of mine. I’m not a “known, prominent,” person, but I’m a Christian and I’m Scott’s mom. That’s good enough for me!! Heal, my dear, and know you are in good hands – our Lord and Savior!

  12. Barbara Newman says:

    Kendall, I had no idea that you were going for this procedure early. It is certainly good news that things went well. I am glad that you continue to be an inspiration to your Team Kendall and show your determination to reach your goal. The prayers of your supporters will be with you until, and beyond, we can celebrate that day of your victory. Prayers and blessings, Al
