I have said many times how very blessed I am with the best baby sister ever! She is always there for me! She has been my rock and my pillow through the loss of Jennifer and for all my past and present health battles....always encouraging me, supporting me, inspiring me and cheering me on! She is the best chemo buddy ever...being with me during chemo and cheering me on! She is truly amazing! I really don't even mind being mistaken for her Mom EVERY TIME we are at the hospital or a doctor's would be an honor to be her Mom (although, I may have to rethink the decision not to color my hair after it grows out LOL!)

Ever since we were children growing up, I wanted to protect Kimberly and keep her out of harm's way...even away from the "other sister"! She was so tiny and so very sweet! As her big sister, I always did and still do want the very best for her! If I could take any of life's unpleasant events for her, I would in a heartbeat! She means the world to me. She is the most caring, giving and compassionate person I know...always thinking of others and what she can do for them!

Tuesday she had an arterial gram...thankfully, it showed that her arteries were squeaky clean and her heart is strong...YAY! God is soooo good! However, it showed that the pressure in her lungs is elevated, which may be pulmomary hypertension. She will have a lung scan next Tuesday and then follow up with a pulmonologist the following week. I know that we don't have any answers yet...but to me, her having a strong heart is a good sign! We need to stop googling and wait for answers from the lung scan and the doctor's visit. I am calling on all my wonderful prayer warriors once again...this time for Kimberly...please keep her close in your prayers...Thank you so much!

Ditto what Lisa said. I hope everything goes well with Kimberly's pulmonology appointment.

God knew what he was doing when he gave you and Kimberly to one another as sisters! Surrounding you both with prayers.
