Just another quick note. Thank you for all your support and prayers. Jen had a tough day today, as did all her family and friends. Her sister Caz stayed with her all day and after several crises during the day Jen finally managed to get to sleep with some help this evening. I didn't manage to get Jack there today, it would have been too full on for him with Jen in too much pain. Jack and I are going first thing in the morning and we will wait to see if we have a window of opportunity for Jack (and me) to say goodbye. If not, Jen will be sedated either sometime tonight or tomorrow probably and we are told it will look like she is peacefully sleeping so hopefully Jack will feel, in the long run, that he was able to be there with her. Jamie managed to get there this evening and Jen's family have been fantastic support for her through this last trying time.
I can't thank you enough for all your support on here. I have just read your comments and had a damn good cry. I will try to get the chance to read them to Jenni over the next few days while she is "sleeping".
I'm sorry I have not been able to respond to you all but I will get to you over the coming days or weeks. I will keep Jenni's blog going for a while and then decide whether to continue here or transfer to my own which I set up a few months ago for this eventuality. But for the short term I will keep this going at least.
Some of you have left contact details and I will get back to you but please be patient. My email account is
But I'm not sure how often I will be checking in the coming days.
Thanks again and I will update when I can.
