Home from Jordan

This is Jennifer posting. Rebecca came home from Jordan Hospital yesterday afternoon. Chemotherapy and radiation have been stopped. There has been a spread of cancer to her brain. She is now staying downstairs with our parents, her hospital bed and comfy chair have been moved down to keep her comfortable. She said company would be good, although she tires pretty easily. Right now we are just trying to keep her in as little pain as possible.

  1. Jennifer and Rebecca- I’m so sorry to read this. I’v ebeen thinking about her tons. Sending hugs from Ottawa. Wish I were reading something different and hope that the pain is managed very, very well.

    As someone also with breast cancer, Rebe’s blog has been of endless inspiration to me. Her dry sense of humor and lack of self pity–not to mention her wonderful descriptions of food!–have taught me a lot.
    Please convey to her my affection and admiration and when the time comes, she passes knowing that she has been of great help to at least one person with cancer. Bless you Rebe. See you on the other side.

    I too wish I were reading something different. Fingers crossed for you all that the pain can be managed. Rebecca and her story means a lot to me. I hope PBJ and the rest of you are doing okay.

    Hi Jennifer, thanks for posting. I was able to get to Jordan yesterday a.m. and she was desperate to go home. Hopefully the trip wasn’t too painful. I know you will keep her as comfortable as possible and I am thinking of all of you during this time.

    I have been reading thig blog for about three years after I stumbled upon it looking for gyms and was taken by the witty postings of Rebe. I got hooked by the restaraunt food reviews and then intrigued by the funny musings on every day life. I check in every once in a while and was saddened today. I have this anonymous connection with someone who is so real, and that I look forward to hearing from, and is so alive and interested in the simple things that make us all common as human beings. I hope Rebe can post again.
