Just got more serious

Penny's body completely gave out today. She actually left us for a while, but was resuscitated. White counts low, breathing on ventilator, blood pressure low. Not pretty. Not fun.

I really am unsure about what words to use for this post, but decided I needed to keep you guys informed.

Home with the girls. Thanks for the love.

Jonathan

  45. My heart is breaking selfishly, however I want Jonathon, Katie, Mary Keely, and her Mama to know that Penny loved you all so deeply. We have spent hours talking and giggling over each of you.... You each gave her such joy and happiness, so please never forget that in the tough days and months ahead. I am forever changed by Penny and I cherish my time short time with her. Lovingly, her friend and sister, Christy

  50. Dear Penny's Family - I'm very sorry for all of you - I know it's so hard to lose one you love. I lost my mother and my dad lost his wife many years ago, and there's nothing that makes the pain at this time any easier. But she is free now of all the illness she had on earth, and she's with God now. She's watching over you - and will always be around you - never forget that. During the hardest and darkest of moments - she's there right with you. (Sorry I deleted the other post as I misspelled)
