Lund returns to desk on road to recovery

(CNS Business): Well-known local real estate agent Kim Lund recently returned to Grand Cayman and is back in the thick of buying and selling local property. The owner and broker at ReMax fell from the roof of his house in August and sustained a serious spine injury but has now begun the road to recovery. He will be wearing a brace for the next three months and is currently confined to a wheelchair with no feeling in his legs as his spine heals, but he said he is determined to walk again.

Lund, who has lived here for 33 years, returned to Cayman just over a week ago and his continuing his therapy here. “There is no better feeling that coming back to Cayman and my home and family,” he said. “I cannot express enough gratitude for the outpouring of support that I have received from the community. I am so grateful to call Cayman my home.”

Expected back in office in a few days, he said that work was therapy too as he still loves the real estate business.

After Lund fell, he was found very quickly and taken to George Town hospital, where he was operated on by Dr James Akinwunmi. Shortly after surgery, he was air ambulanced to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, where he spent another week in hospital recovering from fractured ribs, punctured lung, and his spinal injury.

He was then moved from the hospital to the Jackson rehab center and spent the next four weeks in physical and occupational therapy. His wife, Ashleigh, was with him for every day that he was in Jackson Hospital and rehab before the couple were able to come home.
