Kimberli Update

Hey Y'all,
Thanks so much for all the prayers offered in Kim's behalf! For those of you new to my blog, Kimberli is my adult daughter who is disabled with Type 1 Diabetes. Kimberli has two children, a husband, 3 dogs, and 2 cats (was 3 but we lost Murphy to old age last week). She is the oldest of my two children and lives about 50 minutes away in Concord, NC (home of Lowes Motor Speedway). Here is a photo of Kim and my Dad last February; he passed away in August at the age of 89.

Kim is being released from the hospital today. Last night they told us that Kim would likely have to have another blood infusion because her hemoglobin count was low. Today they say they were 'mistaken.' Anyway, she is going home to be with her family which is a good and bad thing. It's really good because she gets to see her daughter before she (Suzy) leaves on a cruise to the Bahamas with some family friends and she gets to see her little Joshua who has been missing his mommy. The bad part is that I don't feel she is stable enough to head for home just yet. What do I know?

PS: Thank you from the heart for all your sweet messages and comments on my kits.

Dearest Liv, that's not something anyone wants to hear that the doctor's made some mistake. Over here there's alternative theraphy, try google 'detox for diabetes' as many have been cured the alternative way. No harm done but to have additional information. I am glad she's going home and the children and you must have missed her a lot. Give her a hug for me please. Much love, M
