Second Round

Kendall had her portacath removed and replaced by Dr. Dinsmore Monday morning at Carilion Hospital. Unfortunately, the first one that she received was not easily accessible and was causing a few problems. She was a little uncomfortable yesterday and we hope this one will do its job. She also began her 5 days of chemo on top of this procedure receiving an 8 hour infusion last night. Like last time, she is tired and nauseous from the chemo and sleeping a lot from the anti-nausea medicines. Hopefully we can keep her hydrated and comfortable during these challenging few days. It’s very frustrating to watch her endure these hardships. Kendall’s determination and grit are amazing. She’s one tough girl! All of her nurses are so accommodating and taking great care of her. Thanks again for everyone on Team Kendall ¬†supporting and sending her well wishes. It helps us all stay focused and motivated for Kendall to be cancer free.

Also wanted to say thanks to the Brookville High Cheerleaders for donating and supporting Kendall last week during your cheer competition. We are so blessed to have everyone helping our Kendall beat this disease.

God Bless, The Baynes
