Just a quick note. Jenni has improved quite a bit since the infection was controlled, however there is still just gradual deterioration. She came home Friday evening for dinner and then again on Saturday for the afternoon and evening but went back to hospice in a bit of pain unfortunately. Jenni's sister, Caz, looked after Jack and read to him while I took Jenni back to hospice, which was a help as Jamie was away at his Dad's. It took a little while for them to sort it out before she could sleep and she probably shouldn't have come home again on Sunday as she was exhausted but she likes to be there. Anyway, it was only for a few hours before Jack and I had to come home to Warragul. She seems in slightly better spirits at the moment, which is good.
Some good news! Jack is loving school and life generally. He's growing, making friends, loving swimming lessons and generally growing up. Jamie got his car licence on Friday and after some initial nerves about driving alone, you couldn't have dragged him out of his car on Sunday!
Jenni was going to try to post herself on the weekend while she was home but time and energy just ran out. She says "Hi" to everyone and thanks for the thoughts, wishes and prayers.
Enough for now, better get back to work.
