I am absolutely overwhelmed, to the point of tears, at the outpouring of responses for Jennifer. You all have been such a blessing at this time. I am so far away from her and appreciate that you read my blogs when I vent about her ordeal. Hopefully things will get better each day now that the surgery was finally able to be done. I am hoping to be able to talk to her on the phone today. My sister is going to try to work that out. What a nightmare, but with prayers and faith in God it seems like a major improvement. With an 8 inch rod implanted in her back I'm sure there is still a very long road ahead.
