Thanks for all the messages for Jenni. I haven't been able to get them to her yet. We are an hour away and her printer isn't working. We haven't been to see her and won't be going tomorrow either, she's not feeling great according to her Mum and has tubes everywhere, etc. Jack is doing well at home and while the weather is fine and he's been invited to a friend who lives opposite the beach, I think that's a whole lot more fun and a better option for a 7 yo boy. Besides, it's looking possible that she could well be back in hospice only 5-10 minutes away in 2-3 days so I think we will wait for that and keep his routine "normal" for the next few days.
Shaun, I hope you understand but I don't think it's my place to hand out Jenni's email address without her permission. As soon as I see her/speak with her I will check she's ok with it and pass it on. Hope you understand my position.
I just spoke to Jenni's Mum who went to see her today and she said she had been sitting up in a comfy, recliner chair for a large part of the day and she was exhausted. She's not much interested in food but eating a little. According to her Mum she now seems to understand that they didn't operate but she isn't talking about it.
Ok, more info, just spoke to her best friend who went to see her yesterday. She is still very heavily drugged and so far there is no talk about when she's coming back to hospice. Sorry this post is all over the place. I spoke to her Mum and best friend, Lee, after I started typing so, the story changed slightly as I went.
Thanks again for all the thoughts and prayers and I will get all the messages to her as soon as I can. Take care everyone.
