  1. I’m glued to my internet..so thanks for the updates. It sound like Ana is getting the best care possible. We are all thinking of her and all of you

  2. oh! what an incredible day for you, for all of you. i am so pleased that the surgery was a success. the human body amazes me. you had mentioned the size of the tumor and yet, ana’s body continued to function. it is good you got some much needed rest. please tell jim i am thinking of him also and the grandmothers, i couldn’t help but think how my mother would have suffered right through this along with me, if it were one of her grandchildren. i am just sorry my arms can’t open wide enough to hug all of you.

  3. When it all gets to be too much , just remember that you have to be here at the summit to see the other side and be able to safely descend this mountain. You are doing brilliantly and so is Ana.

    Sending you a new dose of everything good!
    Love, Janna, Adam, Max, Miles and Sheppy

    LOVE LOVE LOVE to Ana, and I pray and wish for the best MDs and Nurses and PAs and whoever is keeping the care plan moving forward for you all.

    In this chaos of beeping machines and air that is too cool or too warm and people shuffling past imagine You and Ana and Emily swimming in the river at Marbletown beach, warm sun making you thankful for the refreshing water.

  8. Thinking of Ana and hoping the next couple days pass quickly so you can all relax and Ana can get back to her job of being a kid as soon as possible.

  9. We are sending much love to you guys. Sleep in a hospital is never easy but we are glad you got some to fill up a bit. Here are some words from one of my favorite authors, John O’Donohue.

    May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
    may the clarity of light be yours,
    may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
    may the protection of the ancestors be yours.
    And so may a slow
    wind work these words
    of love around you,
    an invisible cloak
    to mind your life.”


    • Thanks, Carrie, John O’ Donohue is one of my favorites. I have all his work. Thanks for the reminder of his inspiration at a time like this. Janne

  10. So glad to hear you got some sleep. We are with you with every mile we travel out here- just woke up in Colorado. All our love and strength to you and Ana!!!

  11. I have been thinking of all of you nonstop! I just want you to know that you are not alone in your worry or in your hopes. I am holding your virtual hand and praying for Ana and sending as much love and prayers your way as possible.

  12. You all have been on my mind in and in my heart for sometime now but really more then ever.
    I am embracing you and will keep you close in my heart!

  13. Hey, Jackie!

    Good morning!
    Here’s a low dose of something for you! xoxoxo

    Yes! No!

    How necessary it is to have opinions! I think the spotted trout
    lilies are satisfied, standing a few inches above the earth. I
    think serenity is not something you just find in the world,
    like a plum tree, holding up its white petals.

    The violets, along the river, are opening their blue faces, like
    small dark lanterns.

    The green mosses, being so many, are as good as brawny.

    How important it is to walk along, not in haste but slowly,
    looking at everything and calling out

    Yes! No! The

    swan, for all his pomp, his robes of grass and petals, wants
    only to be allowed to live on the nameless pond. The catbrier
    is without fault. The water thrushes, down among the sloppy
    rocks, are going crazy with happiness. Imagination is better
    than a sharp instrument. To pay attention, this is our endless
    and proper work.
