Update on Jenny's Health

This is a picture of a cell.
This is not a drawing of a cancer cell. It is only the drawing of a cell.

Jenny has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

This article will tell you about the disease.

She is in stage 1. It was found very early because she fell and broke her rib. The doctors are very hopeful about the outcome.
Other than some bone marrow involvement and some bone involvement, all of her other test results were in the NORMAL range.

We are meeting with the doctors this week to discuss treatment options.

This is all I can say for now. I will update the information later. I also hope to start a Caring Bridge site soon. When I do, I will post the link here. Please keep us in your prayers.

God works in mysterious ways. That fall led to tests that discovered this in the early stages. A blessing in disguise. Continued prayers to all as you make decisions in the days ahead.

I am so glad it was caught so early. Still sending healing thoughts to you and your daughter.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Annie Modesitt's ("The Knitting Heretic) husband Gerry was diagnosed with multiple myeloma two years ago now I believe. She blogged about the entire experience and still gives updates on his health.

I am glad they caught it early. Stay strong.
