Karyn’s Story

Site created on September 15, 2019

Hi everyone! 

It is our Warrior's oh-so-loving daughter, Samantha! I am here to update you on what is going on throughout this battle with Cruella. Expect treatment updates, positive quotes, recognition to friends and family members who contribute their love and support, as well as a countdown to the last day of treatment. I welcome all of you to visit and reach out through this website we have created. As my Trooper will be busy giving this fight her all, we thought it would be better to communicate here so that she doesn't have to feel obligated to respond to every one of you. The less stress the better! She loves you all and is thankful beyond words for the love and support you have shown her. 

The fight has just begun, WE GOT THIS.

Journal entry by Joyce Densmore-Thomas

Karyn continues to bring us good news!  Every day she gets a tube removed, she gets "out" for a walk around the hospital, AND...wait for it...She's able to eat soft food!!!!  Her next steps are to get all tubes removed (including the NG feeding tube) and continue to pass her swallow tests so that she can go home!  She's on schedule to be home by...wait for it...the end of THIS week!  

So despite a nasty infection that derailed her progress for a few days, Karyn is ahead of her recovery schedule and will be in the comfort of her home SOON!!!!  Keep those happy thoughts coming!  They're working!  Much love to you all for your continued support.
