    Jenna surgery at last

    Hello to all you nice people that have been waiting with fingers crossed for Jenna to have surgery. Jenna is now on HDU after having surgery, she is doing well and the surgeons are happy with the result, exact correction has yet to be confirmed but what I will say is she may need a new wardrobe of cloths lol a small price to pay for such a brave little lady.As a mum I cannont thank you all enough for helping all my family find are way out of this very dark place we have found are self in, as Jenna has said the surgeons have been amazing angels/ magicians as she put it angels for making her wish come true and magicians for doing it with boxing gloves on. Lets pray that the people that can change this remove the boxing gloves soon and let these angels get on with what they do best.

    I'm so happy to hear that Jenna has finally had her surgery! I was a little worried when she said she could get bumped out of line last minute if an emergency came in. Whew! I hope her pain is under control and she has a smooth recovery. I would wish her an easy recovery, but I know that with a surgery of this magnitude, "easy" isn't even in the vocabulary. She's a brave woman and has been through a lot. I hope this is the end of ever having surgery again, so she can get on with the business of living. She's been a very encouraging addition to the forum! Thanks so much for the update! =)
    Be happy!
    We don't know what tomorrow brings,
    but we are alive today!
