Update on Jenny

Hi, guys. On Saturday Jenny was admitted to the ICU for tetanus poisoning. She is hanging in there and getting a little better each day but could use your good thoughts and prayers right now. She thinks she'll be back and at it in no time, but we appreciate your patience and support while the realities of the situation play out. I'm sure she'll want to post an update as soon as she can in the next couple of days. I assume it will include a PSA on keeping your tetanus boosters up to date!

Thank you all so much for all the love and continued support you've shown Jenny throughout the years. You all mean a lot to our family.

Michael

(At least her room has a great view...)

Omg, Michael. Hope you and the girls are doing ok and that Jenny is hanging in there! Sending you guys all of my love.

I hope this makes for a (maybe?) funny footnote in Jenny's future "home remodel" book.

How scary! I was just recently thinking that we all run out and get a tetanus booster if we injure ourselves with rusty metal, but I have never actually known of someone getting tetanus. Jenny is definitely in our prayers, along with you and the girls. I don't take the time to read too many blogs anymore, but Jenny, yours is one of my favorites. Wishing for a speedy recovery!

Sara said...

I also wondered if something had gone wrong! Ahh, the odd closeness of a blogger and the readers that love them. Sending prayers her way. Thank you for updating us Michael, it is so appreciated.

Paige said...

Thank you for updating us, Michael. LGN is my first read each morning and when Jenny is absent for a few days, it definitely sends up a red flag (though usually it means she's deep in an upholstery project). I'm sure the stay in the ICU was incredibly scary for the family (is she out of the ICU at this point?). Sending good thoughts your way.

I was just beginning to worry this morning. I'm glad it's nothing worse and I hope it gets resolved as soon as possible. It's probably been a good thing for her to get some rest somehow. I always wonder how she keeps that crazy wonderful pace of hers. She has our permission to slow down and take care of the most important things for as long as she needs to get well!

Christine said...

Just read MIchael's post- what the?? Hope you are on the mend, my friend. Reminds me of the time you had pneumonia and if I remember correctly you taught Joy School that week and I finally heard you were sick at all when you were super super sick. Next its going to be something like, "Hey Christine, I had malaria but I'm fine now, no biggie. Got that couch recovered while I recovered (har har har)"

Its the pits to be so horribly sick when you're mom, and wife, and decorator extraordinaire. I really will keep you in my prayers this week (and the next few) while you climb back up on top of everything. But give yourself a break and don't climb too fast. :)

You're amazing. I love you! Feel better!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Jenny. I'm like the other folks who wondered if everything was allright after a few days of not posting. I am curious how this happened. Last fall I was reupholstering a Victorian chair and poked myself a few times with some of the rusty tacks. I worriedly asked my husband if I should get a tetanus shot and he said I was crazy. Maybe I wasn't being paranoid. Perhaps this will result in a little education for all of us.

Courtney said...

I have been following the blog for awhile and admire Jenny's style! I hope she gets well very soon!
