Thank you all so much! I’ve taken down the Paypal button and forwarded the gift to the Fulwiler family. Update here.
As most you have surely heard, my sweet friend Jen (of Conversion Diary) was diagnosed last week with bilateral pulmonary embolisms. You can read updates on her condition here and here, but in short this is a pretty serious situation and her hematologist just informed her that it will be at least three months until before she’s back to anything resembling normal in terms of her health and ability to function.
Her newest little one (number six and a sweet baby boy) is due in April. It probably goes without saying that she is going to need a lot of support over the next few months to keep her family functioning and her and her baby safe and sound.
Jen insists that she needs nothing more than your prayers but as her best friend I am overruling her on this. Her needs will be great over the next six months or so and I very much want her to be able to be as at peace and under the least amount of stress as possible. As Jen mentioned on Twitter, she can’t breathe if she moves at all so you can imagine how difficult even the most basic of tasks will be for this mother of six in the coming months. Because of this I’ve decided (after several very kind requests from a great many of you) to put up a Paypal button (see below) for Jen.
In addition, I know Jen very well and know how much she will want to thank everyone who donates personally. I also know that writing thank you notes and reaching out to everyone who has shown her love during this ordeal is simply more than she is going to have the time or energy for right now. Because of this, I am going to include a note with this gift that lets her know in no uncertain terms that all we want from her is for her to take care of herself right now and that she is not allowed to lift a finger to right a single thank you note.
