 This is Jenna Marie and I'm 18 months already... I'm having fun and my big sisters love me, sometimes their squeezes even hurt! So go ahead and read what mommy writes....


Hi, my name is Jenna Marie... When this site was started I was just a few weeks old and in Rockyview NICU. I was born with a poor heart, there is a long name for it, but it's easier to say there was 2 holes in my heart. So I had trouble gaining weight and eating, I got so tired. I was with these nice nurses, like Maria, Betty and the list is so long, for 7 weeks and then they took me to the ACH hospital. And I was there for another looong time, at least my mommy & daddy tho't so. Anyway, this story is getting long... I had my surgery in Edmonton where a nice doctor put a patch over those holes and you should see me now. I screech so loud sometimes, cuz I'm happy, that my mommy has to tell me to shh! And my sisters, Amber, 7 & Laci, 4, just love me to bits and they do all kinds of funny things to make me be noisy. Thanks for reading this, that has really helped my mommy & daddy, and especially when you say hi.
