Fevers, Flowers and Food

Jodi's fever is gone...another blessing for sure! Jodi's latest gift of flowers (they've all been beautiful and have been very much appreciated) was in the form of a paper bouquet with messages written on the backs from members of Jodi and Tolan's ward (see the picture below). To top off the day, two angels came by a few minutes ago with "real" food...wonderful meals from Olive Garden. The best for certain during this entire episode.

It's been a good day! We're feeling quite certain now that tomorrow will be a change in venue...from the hospital surrounded by people who have been dedicated to helping find the answers to a home surrounded by people who have been praying the answers would come!

There is still a challenging journey ahead, but the one behind has been literally filled with amazing experiences, incredible people, and blessings from Heaven untold!

Thanks to each of you who have been those "blessings from Heaven"! Please stay tuned!

Wow Jodi, I just read your story. I am Anita Olszowka, one of the RN's at the BYUH Health Center. You have had an amazing journey and you have truly been blessed. Thanks for sharing your story with us, it brought tears to my eyes as I eagerly read from day to day what you have been through. I had asked Wilda yesterday how you were doing and she offered the blog site to me, but when she told me where your tumor was, I went "oh no, that is not good". You see, I have been a nurse for over 32 years and I have rarely seen or heard of any good outcomes with brain stem tumors. I know you have a long ways to go, but you truly have had the hands of angels at your side. Keep up the hard work, our thoughts and prayers are with you. You are a miracle.
