Mission Completed – By Hubby

Sorry for the late post. The wireless at the hospital was giving fits after the last post. Jen’s surgery finished up about 11:00 am (about 2 hours ahead of schedule). The doctor said that she was still waking up but we should be able to see her in about an hour. “What A Relief.” Dr. Kalinowsky said that the surgery went well and that she didn’t encounter anything that would make her think that she was cutting “THROUGH” a cancerous area. Everything was as it should be. Went in to see Jen at about noon. She was still groggy, but what a blessing to see her talking/whispering to me. It’s hard to hold back the tears right now. It took until about 3 to get her a room (E226 at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo) and we were so grateful once we got in there. We both napped at about 3:30 and Jen woke me about 5:00. Wow, she was doing amazing. She spoke with me and a nurse we know from church that stopped by and had to get up to use the potty (kid’s term, I know, but it is all I’ve got). She figured out how to get up from the bed without using her hands or arms and was very steady on her feet. I think her recovery will be swift and blessed. Take care all do everything you can to let Jen know she is loved. —Jeremy

    Praise God from whom all blessings flow! That’s the only thing I could think of to say, but it is sooo true.

    Jeremy thank you for sharing with us these last two posts. For giving us an insight into your struggles with this and your love for your bride. We often think of you as a silent warrior in this IBC battle. What a special crown you have awaiting you!

    Hug the kids extra tight to night and lots of hugs and kisses to Jen!
    PS. Did she wear red lipstick to her mastectomy? 😉
