About Me

Overland Park, Kansas
My name is Kate, I'm 19 years old, and on March 4th 2010 I was diagnosed with kidney cancer. I was told I had to get my left kidney removed- praise the Lord I have two! A month later they took out my kidney and told me the tumor was benign! I worship a God of miracles! I am a desperately dependent follower of Christ, who feeds on God's Word like manna! I know the healing hand of God and I believe He has plans to prosper me and not to harm me! I started this blog to communicate continued prayer requests, keep people up to date on my health and daily life, and most importantly share how Christ's love is transforming my heart everyday! Thank you for all your support! God Bless! PS I love to know who is reading the blog so comments are much encouraged and loved :)

Follow up

I had my follow up doctors appointment yesterday. I wish you all could see my scar! It's beautiful! There's about a 3'' by 3'' area under my scar that is numb and the doctor said that those nerves heal 1 millameter every 6 weeks. Haha patience will be key! He told me I could go back to regular exercise and activities 6 weeks after surgery so I've got 2 weeks to go. YAY! Confession: I definitely tried a sit up last week and the dr. just told me that I could get a hernia trying that this early :/ whoopsie... well now I know! I've already set the date for when I can ride horses again at Danielle's house! I continue to move forward everyday towards a normal life! My open house, graduation, and summer are all rolling in so quickly! Pretty soon I'll be starting school at Arkansas! Look out life... here I come!!!
