Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.
Jody has had an extraordinary year in terms of her health in 2016. Aside from some minor issues, she has not been admitted to the hospital until this past weekend. Jody woke early Saturday morning with a temperature and seizures. She was brought to the emergency room soon after, then admitted. It became clear that day that she contracted pneumonia, and by Monday it had made its way into both lungs. She is receiving oxygen and today she will be put on a respirator.
The speed at which her pneumonia has taken hold and its strength over her has taken us with some surprise. Mom and Dad will meet with doctors today to go over Jody's health care directive.
We ask that you please include Jody in your thoughts and prayers and send her light, love and healing thoughts. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
