Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
She was scheduled to begin aggressive chemotherapy yesterday, but there was a delay getting the necessary echo cardiogram. After "some words" with hospital staff, Jenny got the echo cardiogram and her chemotherapy was started today about noon, while I was talking to her on the phone. She will receive treatments daily for about 10 days. She has been told that she will stay in the hospital for about a month.
Jenny's ward fasted for her Sunday. As our dear friend and Relief Society President, she was really missed. It was amazing to see the outpouring of love and concern for Jenny from the entire ward. So many asked if they could help in so many different ways and we have seen friends and colleagues from across the country show similar great love for Jenny.
A ward friend, AM, decorated her room with a rug, fall foliage, Christmas lights, silk flowers, and more. It looks so great that hospital staff has been stopping by to check it out!
Today, Jenny feels pretty good. She's "anxious" and doesn't "want her eggs to drop like flies" which she learned today will happen. :(
She wants everyone to know that she is "so so so grateful for the love and support" that has been shown to her in so many ways! Jenny, we love you and send our hugs and pray for your added strength!
