14th December

14 Dec

Hi Everyone…..

It’s Kim here. Phil has been doing such a good job of keeping everyone well updated, he got back on the boat yesterday after spending 2 weeks with Kerry in Harefield and I know that she will have loved having him there for so long! 

I have spoken to Mum and there have been a few updates today which Kerry wanted on her blog. She is now in E Ward which is brilliant (a lot sooner than we originally thought) which speaks volumes of her progress in itself. She has had a busy day today- her catheter, cvp artery line and nasal feeding tube have all been removed! Her trachi tube has also been swapped for a much smaller one and they hope to take this out completely in the next few days. She just now has one IV line in her arm and all of her monitors are now off. She has gone down to 1 litre of oxygen a day and therefore is pretty much completely breathing on her own (again the plan is to get this to none very soon). 

Mum informed me that she is doing very well however has a very uncomfortable/bloated stomach so this is causing her discomfort. The doctors have advised that the physio is crucial at this time and she must push herself to really work with the physios as much as she can. She is incredible and we’re all so proud of her. Tom went to visit her at the beginning of this week Edgar & I are going this weekend and we cannot wait to see her!! 

A lot of people have been asking me if they can send things/cards to Kerry- I have been informed that she is now on ‘E Ward’ at Harefield so cards can be sent there (sorry to not be more specific). Again, Kerry and the family are so grateful for all of your well wishes and thoughts and I know she’ll be back to blogging in no time!


Love  Kim xxxxx

    The news is more and more encouraging; – what a brave person Kerry is – and has had to be. It looks as though things are improving at speed – and we continue to send love and prayers. – Also of course to Phil and the family.

    Dear Kerry, Phil and Kim and the whole family,

    Thrilling news – absolutely wonderful. Couldn’t have had a better Christmas present. We send all our love and wishes that Kerry continues to thrive.

    Good news this end….Daniel has been chosen from 8,000 candidates to carry the Olympic Torch through our neck of the woods next summer. Our MP nominated him. It is such an honour and we are all extremely proud of him.

    Hugs and seasonal wishes,

    Carolyn and David

    We rejoice once again with the good news. Kerry’s progress has been tremendous and we thank God for his love and care for her and for providing such a brilliant team to minister to her in Harefield. We continue to pray for the on-going healing and that all of you will be overwhelmed by the love and peace of Jesus.
    Our love
    Brian & Hazel

    Hi Kerry
    You don’t know me but I feel I know you! My hubby Rob works for your Dad at the garage and we have been avidly following your progress via your Dad and your blog.
    I just wanted to say that I think you are such an incredibly brave, strong and amazing girl. You have fought with such courage and its great to hear that you are coming along in leaps and bounds! You have such an amazing team behind you, both the Harefield staff and your fantastic family.
    I really hope you continue doing so well with your recovery and are soon back in Jersey with your family.
    As always my love, thoughts and prayers are with you all.
