Who smiles after a 12 hour surgery? Why Jen, of course! You are truly amazing! God has held you in His hands, and He will not let you go...I am praying for a speedy and complete recovery. And for some much needed rest for your wonderful family. They are awesome. God bless you all. Cheryl

A big thanks to Dr.Foster and Dr.Loggie for all of their hard work yesterday and their commitment to Jen's case.

And Jen you are truly amazing!...I will continue to think about you and pray for a speedy recovery.

Thanks Chris for the update...I kept waking up in the night thinking about Jen and checking for an update...thanks for being her rock...Take care and breath alittle easier.

Robin and Lilly

Sounds like things went really well! We've been checking the blog for updates and praying for you all throughout...hope things continue to get better and better.


Elizabeth Malone (Robin's Mom)

Wonderful News! Now I can break my fast. I was up several times during the night to see if you had updated the blog, should have known a computer glitch would happen. Robin was keeping me somewhat updated but so glad to hear PLAN A was a success. Over 1000 hits many people care for you. Keep smiling.


Good morning everyone! Thank you SO much for your continuous prayers. We are definitely feeling them here in Omaha. Words can't express the elation upon seeing and talking with Jen last night. She was smiling, glad to see us, and happy to hear that Emma sat on the potty twice! What a big girl Emma!In the ICU Jen will have one-on -one nursing care which is a great relief. Chris and I are breakfasting at our very convenient hotel, which is just down the street from the hospital and then heading up to the ICU to spend the day with Jen. Please keep those prayers coming because I believe through the grace of God we were led here to Dr. Foster and Dr. Loggie. Your added prayers will complete Jen's successful healing and recovery.
Jenny, Racheal and Alexis, please give my sweet Emma and Peighton kisses from their nana. Dee, thanks for taking such good care of my wonderful class. Give them my love and tell them I'll be back in a week or so and we'll have that anticipated popcorn party! To all of our family and friends, God bless you and know I pray for you just as hard as you've been praying for us.
Much love,

Shelby Twenter
