We have had many requests to see how Jen is doing so here is an update from our family:
Although Jen’s fatigue and shortness of breath keep increasing and kept her in bed most of the time, Jen decided that she wanted to surprise Corbin and do something fun when he came for a visit this past Saturday, so she decided to celebrate his 7th birthday a little early. At first he was a little confused, saying “But it’s not my birthday yet”. But when he heard he would get one present, he was all for it and said “Well, it’s pretty close–November 2nd.”
Jen made a scavenger hunt for him with 7 clues for his 7 years. He had great fun running from place to place inside/outside and upstairs/downstairs to get the next clue. Fred followed video-taping the fun. The last clue was “Time to play with your FAVORITE!” Corbin came running downstairs to where Jen was sitting and when he saw the Razor motorized scooter sitting beside Jen, he just stopped in his tracks with his eyes sparkling and his mouth in a big “O”! Here is a picture of Jen and her un-birthday boy! Jen went outside in her wheelchair with oxygen to see Corbin ride his new scooter up and down the sidewalk.
Since that time, Jen has steadily become more short of breath and fatigued. She is sleeping most of the time. Hospice has been adjusting meds to keep her as comfortable as possible. We thank you all for your continued prayers for Jen and our family.
