The Long Journey Home

Good news and some bummer news for our most loved Reeder today. The very, very bummer news is that Jenny will not be coming home for her last treatment and will remain in her love adorned room until her blood count is higher (it dropped again today as a result of yesterday's chemo). The good news is that Jenny only used the word "bummer" and not a stronger and more colorful word to describe how she was feeling about the news from the oncologist. Although very disappointed, Jenny seemed positive and strong as she talked about her new do and how she spent the day experimenting with scarfs and hats. She discovered that she prefers scarves as they keep her sometimes chilled noggin' warmer. Jenny is anxious for fresh air, fresh fruit and veggies and the comfort of being at home. We decided that a HUGE fruit salad (and cold-sore medicine) will be waiting for her at the end of this next week. We absolutely adore you Jenny and will be sending high blood count vibes your way!

As Jenny was telling me how she was experimenting with new looks, she sent this photo to my email. She can totally rock pink.

Jenny! Love the pink! You know you totally rock all of the styles I've seen through the course of this blog. There aren't very many people that can claim such. It is a bummer that you can't come home yet but I'm glad to hear that you are getting better! I've wanted to come visit you but working with kids I AM a vector of germs and would feel horrible passing that along to anyone..i don't know how my roommates have survived when I haven't been so lucky...but anyway I'm keeping you in my prayers and I'll include this time that you'll get fresh fruits and veggies soon!

I'm rooting for ya,
Lisa Bardo
