Joanne Update...


Gord is back in Winnipeg today, helping Craig move out of his apartment and return back to Regina for the summer. In his place, Joanne asked me to post a message on her blog. For those of you that don’t know me, I am Joanne’s brother, Darryl.

Joanne is still in the hospital but I am glad to report that she is stable and improving. She has had a tough few days but her blood counts are improving, her pain is being managed and her fever is under control. Assuming that she remains stable, she will likely be able to return home in the next few days.

Her spirit and determination are as remarkable as ever!
She says the food is fine and she is kept well stocked with dark chocolate, not to mention her daily venti, extra hot, no foam, 2% latte.
On behalf of her family, thanks to all of you for your ongoing support.

Thanks Hacker Daryl - Joanne you look very comfy! Good to hear the symptoms are less and your blood count is up. Let's hope the looming strike never happens and your nurses will continue to provide the best care. You do look good Joanne. It must be the lattes !!

Oh how wonderful to look in her and see that great smile.

I'm so pleased she is feeling more comfortable and chocolate seem like just the ticket to me.

Please give her my love. I hope she gets home soon and I'm sure having the kids around will be good for her too.
