Keep Fighting Kennette
Organized by: Gina's Wish
Kennette is accepting visitors for anyone that would like to go see her! I had the pleasure of spending an hour with K on Monday morning. She has an amazing and resilient attitude and spirit, and we all continue to pray that her body and brain will follow suit. Please reach out to Kennette directly if you'd like to pay her a visit.
Kennette is back home and recovering with her family. She has a long road back to full recovery, but we know how strong and determined this woman is! Praise God! People have asked about providing meals for her family. Her "take them a meal" schedule is full for weeks to come, but please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out if any additional meals are needed in the future.
We are hearing that Kennette has been awake and even walking in the last 24 hours! Kennette has been moved out of the ICU and into a private room. The family requests that visitors hold off until after Wednesday to visit her.
Kennette was early into a ride on the IM Chattanooga course on Saturday, August 30th. She hit a pothole and went over her handlebars. She hit on her forehead below her helmet line and was knocked unconscious and taken by ambulance to Erlanger Hospital.
She had surgery for a fractured skull and blood clot. Based on all of the information that the doctors and surgeons have, the surgery went as well as could be hoped and all of the scans are indicating positive news.
Kennette has touched countless lives and saved countless others through her instruction of Infant Swim Rescue, which she began after losing her son in a tragic drowning accident. She is a pillar of the triathlon community and always has a smile or words of encouragement for those around her. She is a mother, grandmother, friend, daughter, triathlete, instructor, cheerleader, and a symbol of strength, resiliency, and love.
Please help give back to her and her family through any financial support you are able to provide. Once Kennette is out of immediate medical danger, she will need any help we can give her through support from lost income, medical expenses, and returning to her beautiful, giving life.
