    Oh man, that first time standing up.

    Thanks for the update Amy. Sounds like Jenee' is pretty much on track!

    Saw Jenee yesterday

    I'm in Bend also and stopped by to visit Jenee yesterday and am happy to report she's resting comfortably and came through everything so well. She said the rolling is still pretty tough and standing makes her feel a little dizzy and faint, but it was really inspiring to see how well she is doing!

    You Can't Keep a Good Woman Down

    Another update on Facebook from Jenne's husband, Andrew:

    Jenee' update: She had a great day yeasterday after a rocky start...she went "truckin" around the hall and back to bed. Bad night last night...pain and muscle spasms got out of control and she paid the price. Lesson learned..I hope

    Jenee',
    Isn't it nice to be on the other side? I am doing fine although I'm sure watching the clock to see if it's almost time for pain meds. Give me a call when you're home and rested. Keep up the good work.
