Kristen Update 17 Sept.

So sorry for the delay in getting the Diary updated. On Sept. 11th Kristen had issues with anemia and was entered into hospital for blood transfusion. Her hemoglobin blood levels have been stabilized but unfortunately she has also experienced problems with Bronchitis. After consultation with her Dr’s, Nurses, family and Palliative Care Kristen has decided to discontinue Chemo treatments. Kristen is being entered into Hospice and will be staying at her sister Laurie’s house in Sioux Falls. Dad and Nancy will be arriving at Laurie’s this weekend.

Thanks again for your wonderful prayers and support.

    Ugh! These past months have been such a struggle for Kristen, and for all of you. Sending my love and I’m praying that this will be a time of peace, comfort, and special moments. I’m so glad that you will all be together during this precious time. Please let me know if I can do anything-I’m here if you need me.
