Our friend Krysten of DarwinianFail.com is having surgery on February 1 to “fix her heart.” I’m not going to go into great detail about her surgery because I would do a horrible job of explaining it. If you are so inclined, you can read about the “surgery 411” here, but essentially they need to go in and make some tweeks to her robot heart. She is no stranger to surgery, but I wanted to send some positive energy and love her way
…and I brought some friends with me.
I put out a simple request:
friends, please send me a photo showing your LOVE for Krysten and some kind words… and THIS was the inspiring results.
I’ll work on making a heart with my hands before Toronto. I know this isn’t how you wanted to start the year, but 100% is where you want to be and Penelope just needs a little tune up to match your energy and spirit. Cheers.
Dearest Krysten, You’re the bravest, and most caring person I know
— my thoughts are with you during this (temporarily) hard time!
Krysten, you know you’re my hero. Rest up and you’ll be back in no time.
Get well soon, so you can run, but mostly so I can kill you at Cranium ;)
Krysten, I love you so much and am here for you whenever you need me. To make you laugh,
to beat M and R at cranium or simply as your davids tea bitch LOL I love you!! Xoxo
Kristen, sending lots of love and thoughts your way! Looking forward to doing Power Movement with you in March. xo
Wishing you a speedy recovery Krysten! Sending lots of love and healing energies your way! (and a #FUFACE) :)

While getting surgery is definitely no fun, just think about all the people who will be at your beckon call for the next few weeks — there is always a silver lining! :)
You continue to inspire and amaze me. You are the true definition of beauty through and through.
