Moving Quickly and Thank You...

Yes, the good folk at Peter Mac are moving fast. I got a phone call the day after I'd been up there to say surgery was booked for Monday (the exploratory surgery of course). So I have to be in Melbourne at 7am which is pretty early because we have at least an hour traveling time included. Anyway I guess it's a good thing they are moving so fast because it doesn't give any stray tumors a chance to grow. It's amazing how professional they are up there, I am so impressed. I have to just mention that I am so touched by all of your comments, good wishes and prayers. One of my blog readers called this my 'blog family' and as I read that, I thought that was the best description I had heard for what this is here at my blog, so you are now officially my blog 'family'. Now I know in one of my recent posts I said I would respond to each and every comment and I still stand by that, except for the one written previously to this one because I have over 50 comments so far and that is a lot to answer individually. Also because the content of your comments is similar I think I can just respond here to all of you by saying a great big THANK YOU to all of you. I am, once again, amazed and so touched that you have all showed up to wish me the best, it truly is a magical place here because of all of you and I do solemnly thank you from the bottom of my heart.

As to any news, I will, of course, keep you posted. The procedure I am having on Monday is called a sigmoidoscopy (sp?) Take good care my dear blog family and I will surely write more soon. Love to you all Jx

Edited to add: I may try to answer the comments one by one but no promises this time.


  1. I'm first!! Blessings and hugs to you, Jeni.

    Love to you, dearest.

  20. We'll be praying for you Monday and checking in on you for sure.
    Love, Muneera

  21. Dear Jen,
    This is such great news!!! Been on vacation this past week so didn't have a chance to comment on the progress you're making. I'm so psyched out for you!!! Just finished reading an excellent book The Shack. (sorta strange, but AWESOME!!!) A must read for when you are resting. It's fiction, but makes you really think--in a good way! Praying God will guide those surgeon's in their decision for your best outcome. You're a tough cookie and you will come out a victor!!! Go Jenster!!!

  22. Sending you so many good wishes and best luck for this new hope!! Rest and think every positive thought... we're all sending you the best wishes possible.

  23. still praying for you beautiful jen...

  24. Wow Jenna what good news! You've pulled a bunny out of the beanie there that's for sure :)
    Good luck with the sigmoidoscopy Monday and I'll be willing the medical team to give the all-clear for the bigger operation and keeping my real fingers and virtual toes crossed for you.
    I'm glad to hear your pain has subsided a lot too - what a relief that must be.
    Best wishes,

  25. Jen, I am so glad that things are taking a turn for the better, I really am. I'm sending you my love and prayers too.

  26. I'm praying hard for continuing good news.

  27. Oh Jen!!!!!! I am so happy for you!!!!!! I am praying!!!!!!!

  28. I am just so, so, so hopeful and happy for you, that this is happening.
