Ready to come home

Kendall spent 9 days at NIH and was treated with an experimental drug. We would like to thank our nurse Lisa for her outstanding care. Kendall had experienced some joint/bone pain but was able to receive all of her scheduled doses. She returned home on Saturday evening and the following day she began having some serious side effects from this drug. She was admitted to Lewis Gale for thrombotic microangiopathy. This was unforeseen and would need transfusions, fluids, and pain meds. She is doing better and we hope she will be home by tomorrow. Thanks to Dr Fintel, Blue Ridge Cancer Dr’s & nurses and the Lewis Gale 6th West Oncology staff. Special thanks to Katie K. & Lori for being great nurses and helping our Kenny!

    Kendall is such an inspiration to me. Last summer, following a routine mammogram, I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer. However, it was also aggressive so I ended up doing 4 rounds of chemo. I am now having 33 rounds of radiation and will finish up on Good Friday. I pray for Kendall every day and am praying for a complete healing so she can get on with her life and become the lovely woman I know she will be.

    The Lord has Risen; the Lord has Risen, indeed. Kendall, I said a special prayer for you in church, sweet girl. I hope and pray you were feeling well enough to see the beauty of this glorious Easter Sunday! God bless, and be with you +
