Hospital and Surgery Update – 28 August

Hospital Update – 28 August


Update: 7:05 PM MST

Just spoke with Kristen…. really tired but in good spirits… and NO Monica – you cannot call her tonight…

Update: 6:45 PM MST

Kristen is out of surgery, a real trooper, awake the whole time. The Dr’s were pleased with how it went but just one step in the struggle. This is ongoing; tomorrow another ultrasound to analyze results and a possible repeat of the process. Kristen is now in ICU with Sister Laurie beside in a “not so comfy” sleeper chair.

We will update as soon as we know more.

———————————————- original post ———————————-

The location of Kristen’s recent clotting is very serious and she has just gone into surgery in an attempt to remove the clot. A clot-busting specialist has arrived from Mayo Rochester so we believe she is in the best hands possible. This is a catheter based clot busting procedure and is very high risk given Kristen’s complex medical condition. Sister Laurie is in the surgery waiting room and we are all just waiting and praying.

Thank you for your support and prayers.

We will update Kristen’s Diary as soon as we get news.
