Jenny is looking so very good. She feels very discouraged and is fighting the idea of therapies at home, but she is really getting better much faster, even though she has not done much physical therapy. Her body is not experincing spasms and she was able to hold her head for several minutes without support today. Her body thermostat is becoming more normal all the time. Jenny reports that her double vision is pretty much gone and her eating/swallowing/mouth movements are better than ever. Jenny would not agree to there being improvments, but she has numerous. We are working out the bugs with nursing and routines, but I think things are going well.

I carried Jenny upstairs for a chance to see our new painted walls and our bedroom. She napped with me on our bed and the kids all joined in to hug on their mom. It felt good to have this type of experince as a family again. I feel good about the future of Jenny’s rehabilitation.


  1. We are SO HAPPY that things are going so well and the adjustments you are making are falling into place. Keep up the therapy, Jenny, even if you don’t want to. This is such a crucial time. Mark, the physical touching you are doing for Jenny has a much greater influence on her health than you’ll ever know. More about that later. We are so grateful that everyone’s prayers continue to be answered. Carry on!!!!

  2. Jenny, Mark & Kids,

    Congrats on getting home Jenny!! We are so proud of you. We pray for you always & we all come to the site to read about your progress. Thanks Mark for keeping us in touch.

    We love you & know that you will continue to improve everyday. Keep doing the physical therapy & keep being a strong Yacktman/Lynn. We know you can overcome this challenge.

    We love you all.

  3. Mark and Jenny,

    I am so happy to hear how well everything is going at home. It has to be such a relief for Jenny to be home and around your children. Hopefully there won’t be too long a time before all the bugs are worked out and life is going smoothly. Good luck! Our prayers are always with you.

  5. Mark and Jenny,

    Hooray! We are so thrilled to hear that you’re home and improving every day! I can only imagine that being “in your element” at home will help you so much!

    Mark, thanks for continuing to write. I know that a majority of the ward checks Jenny’s site on a regular basis, and I’m here at least once a day, just to see the latest updates! These writeups will be a fabulous journal for the years to come!

    Thanks for continuing to share your lives with us! We love you all and pray for you daily!
