My mom and I are planning on doing the study.  She’s away this week, however.  I’m planning on coming, but may be a little late since I’m going to try to get the baby to go to bed beforehand, so I don’t have to bring him.

Comment from Kellie Frost:

Hi all,

I was unable to post this on the city, which was why I posted it in here, but unfortunately, Kim passed away on Saturday morning. She had liver, lung, bone, and kidney cancer and all her organs shut down very quickly.  From the time she was diagnosed to the time she passed was less then a week.  Please keep her husband and son in your prayers….this is certainly very difficult for them to process!

I wanted to share this post her son posted on his Facebook page…

Wall of text coming. But I need to say this.

At just before 9 o’clock this morning, my mother Kim Kier Bakely passed away at Inspira Health Network (f.k.a. Underwood-Memorial Hospital) in Woodbury. She was only 53. My mom was a great and selfless woman who always put others before herself — if you look at her FB profile picture, you’ll see she chose to memorialize her own father, who died many years ago.

She had been admitted to the hospital only a week ago, at the advice of my dad, grandmother, and uncle, after a handful of otherwise relatively innocuous medical conditions she had suffered from for a brief period prior refused to subsist. A couple of days later, we received the diagnosis, that all of her maladies were related to cancer. It was very unexpected. One of her symptoms was a persistent and worsening cough, previously diagnosed as asthma. As a result, she was placed in the ICU with a ventilator. Because the ventilator’s tubes go directly down one’s throat, the patient is sedated so they are not uncomfortable. So while my mom couldn’t move very well or speak at all, she still maintained some degree of consciousness and could very likely still hear us.

Cut to yesterday evening. We found out from the doctor that her oxygen levels and blood pressure were decreasing. The origin of her cancer had been found, and it was the kind that can’t be treated for someone in her state. My family (myself included) and the pastor of our church gathered at the hospital around 9PM, and we remained there for the rest of the night. She died at around 8:55 this morning, June 20. We were all together, at her bedside. 

I am confident that she was comfortable, and she felt no pain. The medicine did its job, and that’s all I can ask. But of course, I still miss her. All of this happened very quickly, and I don’t know what the future holds. But what I do know is that I value deeply the time I spent with my mom while she was still with us.

So hug your parents. Tell them how much they mean to you. I never felt like I did it enough, and now with one of them gone, I regret it.

I love you, Mom. Rest in peace.
