So sorry to hear about your health issues. You've been in my prayers since one of your blogging friends posted about them.

I had pancreatitis myself a few years ago, also originally unexplained (try convincing your doctor that it's not alcohol as a college student!). Mine turned out to be a very rare side effect of Depakote. Pancreatitis is miserable, let alone without adding in any severe side effects. My gastroenterologist at the University of Chicago hospitals was working on a study of the genetic infuences of pancreatitis as they had a strong hunch it was in some part hereditary, at least in some cases.

Praying for a swift and peaceful recovery as God watches over you and your family.


Kim, I will continue to keep you and your family in prayer. I will remember you in front of the Blessed Sacrament today -- asking for your complete recovery.


I have been and will continue to pray for you.

Kristen @ St Monica's Bridge

My prayers are with you! Your prayers helped me through a very difficult time last year I hope mine can be as helpful to you!


So, so wonderful to read that you are home. I continue to think of you often and pray every time that I do.


You are in my daily prayers, dear Kim.


Praying for healing and a swift recovery.

Wendy in VA

I'm so, so glad you're home! Deo gratias! I know the relief of having the option of "long-term"... I wish we could be there to help. We will keep praying for you, your dh, and your children.

I'm so glad you are home. Praying for a full recovery. God bless!


Dear Kim, I have been praying for you and your whole family ever since I heard (at a gypsy caravan). I will continue to pray, that God heals you according to His will; that, by God's grace, your strength and courage will not fail; that your husband, your children, and you will for ever take comfort, knowing that you walk in His light, always.

I am so heartened to hear that you are home again. Rest, bask in the glow of your precious family. Be well, Kim.



So wonderful to hear you are home again! Deo Gratias! Deo Gratias! Deo Gratias! I will continue to pray for your health and recovery. We just never know when life will change course in an instnat, do we. So very glad you are doing better! Now rest, rest, rest and don't over-do, just bask in being home with that dear family.

Kim, God bless your husband and all husbands who are protectors and defenders of their spouse as yours was, mine has been and I hope all will be. I pray for your health and for your family. "Be not afraid" As the feast of Padre Pio is on the horizon; "Pray, Hope, Don't worry" Blessings!

Margaret in Minnesota

Sweet Kim, I am THRILLED you are home. Slow and steady, okay? Promise? We are praying praying praying here in Minnesota--in fact, I have your picture on my computer desktop (such a beautiful picture) and pray for you every time I see it.

Which is a LOT.


Much love...



Sounds like in the midst of great trial you are blessed immensely with loving friends and family and bloggers who really care for you. Prayers and blessings go your way.


Praying for you daily, Kim. I put some candles around the house so that when I see them I'll remember to pray for you. Truth be told, I add a few prayers for myself as well. By his stripes, we are healed.

Wesley Anne

Kim, I do hope you are feeling better! I am so glad that you have your wonderful family to help you and one another. Best wishes for a full and complete recovery! Love, Ann


I've been a long time reader on RSS, but have never commented.
My 20 year old daughter has had life long bouts with chronic pancreatitis. It was confirmed 2 years ago that it is genetic. So very rare to have hereditary pancreatitis. It took many, many years to get a diagnosis. Her team of doctors is absolutely wonderful.
I have never experienced the pain first hand, but have been through the anguish that the family goes through many, many times.

Praying for you and your family.
