Nov 1 2004

Jenny and I went to the hospital early this morning to have her last tube (feeding tube) removed. Unfortunately, they could not get an IV in her, so they postponed it for a later date. Jenny was really dissapointed and I hated to see her feel let down. It will come out soon, but this is another bump in her road to recovery. To do something a little more upbeat, Jenny and I went out for breakfast and Jenny shopped at a new scrapbook store. She has been to craft stores since coming home form the hospital, but she actually bought a couple small things this time. It seemed to do the trick to take away some of the hurt. I have a feeling that she will be wanting to scrapbook now that she can move her arm better. At least she can edit digital photos on the computer.

I, again, want to thank Jenny’s brother, Don, for this great web site. Recently he added some photos of Jenny and the family for those who are interested. They show early progress, but do not really capture how good Jenny has been recently. Hopefully I will be able to add more soon. You can find the link on the begining web page.

  1. Jenny and Mark and family,

    Those pictures are absolutely priceless! Jenny, I can see so much progress over the course of them. I’m sure that initially you might have been reluctant to let Mark and Don put the pictures online for all of us to see, but I’m so glad you agreed. Your spirit just shines through, your kids look terrific! I’m excited to see how great you look! (I love your purple shirt by the way!)

    Mark and Don, thanks so much for all of your efforts to keep us updated about Jenny and your family.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We are all in this together. Line upon line, precept upon precept, muscle upon muscle, strength upon strength…we all grow and become stronger the same way. In many ways, those that really count, you are WAY ahead of us, Jenny.

    Have a great November!
    Love, Cathi Chipman

  2. Jenny – I still check your website to see the awesome progress that you are making. You, Mark and the kids are an inspiration to me. May God continue to hold you in His Arms and provide the peace which passeth all understanding.

  3. Jenny,

    Though I don’t know you personally, I learned of your illness through a personal friend and co-worker, Sharon Coleman. My prayers of renewal and healing were sent up for you. God will continue to strengthen you and bless you and your family. I know there are many miles to go on your road to recovery, but each day God will enable you to make one more step to continue that journey.

    Blessings,

    Chandra C. Haskett

  4. Mark, would you please send me your (or Jenny’s if she still has one) personal email address? I’d like to send her a little message, but on the more personal side.

    Thanks

  7. Jenny,
    So impressive. Your progress is awesome. The pictures themselves say more, than the words that have been written. The kids and I voted that we love the one with you and Zachary. Now titled at our house as, “the eskimo kiss.” Scrapbooking stores?!! Jenny, you do have a bad addiction! I can’t wait to see what you have purchased.

    Love,
    Margot
