Just testing.

Hi everyone,

David here. Just testing the username and password Jenni sent me a couple of weeks ago. Seems it works so people wont have to check the comments section for updates if I can remember where I put these!

Was talking to Lee on the phone and she said that Jenni is getting very weak, she is struggling to use the walker to go about 15 metres down the passage at hospice to get a coffee. I felt she was losing strength last week when Jack and I were there. The steps at home (three of them) are way beyond her ability without help and she is leaning more and more on me as I help her up and down them. Jack and I have been away at Seaspray (a coastal village) for a few days and are heading back to stay at Jenni's place tomorrow for a couple of nights before school/work starts again on monday. We will be either visiting Jenni in hospice each day or taking her home for a few hours each day. She has had a pick line put in for pain medication which apparently means she can't self medicate when she has breakthrough pain. The nurses have to do it at hospice so she also has to sleep there every night too. I gather from Lee that she is sleeping a lot and is often very tired.

Sorry but this is just second hand news as I haven't been down at Frankston since saturday morning. Will post again when I know more. Please keep the prayers and thoughts positive for her comfort, both physically and emotionally as I know from being with her last week Jenni is really struggling emotionally.

Regards,

David.

  20. Oh, David...give her a big hug and a smootch from her bloggers. You're a gem for filling us in. Be assured, God hasn't left the building! Y'all are in the palm of His tender and mighty hand and He will never leave you or foresake you even in the most dire of times. I'm praying your family will put their faith and trust in Him, the One and Only True God of this Universe in whom you will see each other again even after life and death separates you. Hope you're staying strong for the boys and Jen too. They all look to you for strength, but to God you will seek your strength and receive His peace and power. Love to you and Jen girl.

  26. Hi Jen - the power of combined positive energy, prayers and love is all around you from people you know and those you don't know.

    Calmness will enfold you as you open your spiritual self to feel this goodness that is outpouring from so many and relax in the knowledge that you are being taken care of and that everything is unfolding just as it is meant to.

    Peace, comfort and warm hugs. Peggy x

  35. David, I am very proud of and grateful for you and Jenni. Why should I - might you exclaim - as I do not know or have not made either of you!;o).Well very proud and grateful to be part of the human race if amongst us walk people like you,in other words,very proud of the fact that despite whatever happened between you guys, you, David, are around to support and reassure her and teach your son, your step son and all of us out there that kindness and love, when we need them the most, survive and go way beyond shared genes and blood, marriage and divorces and whatever life throws at us. As for Jenni, she knows well why we are all very proud and grateful for her presence in our lives, need I say more when this whole blog says it all?! Pink blessings, immense gratitude and loads and loads of love to you all, may you all find peace and joy in the midst of this very hard and sad time, where hope still shines in the love that surrounds youxxxSophie in London - United Kingdom
