Newest Update as of 12-23-16 early morning: Kim is in pre-op. They should be taking her to surgery in about 30 minutes. After she's done they will take her to ICU. We appreciate all the good thoughts and prayers.
UPDATE as of 12-20-16: Kim found out today she can receive emails through the hospital website stormontvail.org. Go to patient services, email, and type her name in the 'name box, Kimberly Brooks, type her room number, 782 in the 'room number' box, and then type your message. Patient services will print the emails and deliver them to Kim.
She does need the aortic valve replaced and should know more tomorrow. The heart cath showed the arteries are good, no blockages. They got her up today to do a little walking and she's had phone calls from our pastor and a friend, so her spirits are up a little. She just wants things to get done so she can get home with Shasta and get on with life.
She and I thank you for all the prayers, kind and encouraging words, and potp.
We received a message from Kim that she is in Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka, Ks. She's going to have a heart catherization tomorrow and depending on the results will have surgery to replace a heart valve. She's not able to check email at this time.
Leave any messages on her Facebook page and her sister will show or read them to her.
Also, Agnes with Doxies with Moxie knows what's going on.
She thanks everyone in advance for prayers.
