You have all warmed my heart so much...

but...

I have to take a break from blogging right now.

My health continues to grow worse...

And although my pain is not the boss of me...

my head is cluttered with trying to manage it 24/7...

my hands are growing more painful and everything has become much more difficult to manage.

New medications have been unable to help.

But...

The next foray into pain management holds some risk.

So while I am deciding how to proceed and while I am laying in bed and looking at the spectacular mountains and view from my window

I'm going to say bye for now.

I will pop on now and again to update you and tell you hi.

Over the many years I've been blogging I have made some incredible friends, some incredible memories...

and you have all blessed me more than you can ever imagine.

Truly remember friends that pain doesn't always show physically.

Look at peoples eyes and how they walk or struggle to put something into a grocery cart.

It never hurts to offer a smile or a helping hand.



Hugs, hope and happiness to you all.

Dear Sweet Jenny.
I already miss you. I'm so sorry I haven't been able to come over as much as I used to. I am praying for you. I'm sorry your health is becoming unbearable. We will all miss you. I've enjoyed visiting you and being a part of your fun parties. I hope when your feeling well you can come over and visit with us. Wishing you sweet Blessings.

So sorry to hear this, Jenny. I know we all tell you to hang in there, but I know how hard that is to do. I know the never ending pain is one thing to endure but dealing with the constant prescene of it is another. I hope you find answers to this weird thing attacking you and that we see your byline again soon.

lissa said...

sad to hear it but I think it's a good idea to take a break. we all need one now and then.

hope you'll get lots of rest and get well really, really soon.

My sweet friend Jenny, I will miss you because you are so kind and so helpful and just an all round wonderful person. I will continue to pray for you and am praying your doctors will be able to help you find the treatment you need. Chronic pain is a horrible thing, I have seen it so many times when I worked in the medical field. My heart breaks because it is you suffering and I hope you will get some relief very soon. My love to you my dear sweet friend. Mr. Jenny too! May good things come to you healthwise. xo Anne

Jenny, I am so sorry to hear this. I continue send healing thoughts and hope you find relief. Do update us when you can. Blessed be.

I'm so sad to hear that you are such terrible pain, Jenny! I hope the doctors can help to find the right combination of meds to give you relief. Please take good care of yourself! I will keep you 8n my prayers. Hugs

Wandering Wren said...

Dearest Jenny - Here's hoping that this is a temporary goodbye from Blogging land. We have loved all you have brought with your weekly catch ups. I hope you manage to get on top of your pain soon. I can picture you with a view of the mountains and I hope that whatever you decide is the right future direction for the pain & it brings you relief.
Take Care

Hi Jenny ~~ You are a trooper, like Mrs. Jim. I call her a pioneer woman. You fit that also, so brave, so caring. I have enjoyed working with you for a long time. I've been fickle at times, missing for personal reasons. Yet you've never missed a beat, even with all your pain. Saturday Centus was a blast but your mainstay was the Alphabe... Series. 29, 16, 25, 2, 3, 24, and 4 were my counts on the labels, my first didn't switch over for a few. 103 alphabet posts for me. Enjoyed every one and everyone.
Thank you, Jenny. I have you on my prayers, Hubby too. I wish and pray for your relief and healing.
When you return I sure do want to know. Anytime you want to post just leave me a note and I will return to yours. I think a 'short' weekly blog for you to write a post might be enjoyable for you. I intend to see what my blogging friends participate in on Wednsday and Tuesday's, then try one. Six Word Saturday has short posts and is a nice group to write with. I've been with them for (almost) ages and some day want to return when I slow done with other things.
I've done 178 SWS posts, the last was Nivember 7, 2015:

I can only the same as all others did. I will miss the theme and your kind comments, your joy of telling us stories about your grandkids, but being in pain all the time is a horrible burden. I wish you all the best and still hope to get some news from you from time to time if it is possible !

BECKY said...

Dearest Jenny - Just like all the others, I am so sorry to learn about your health. I've not been a good blogger and haven't been getting around to my friends' blogs for a long time. You are, and will continue to always be, in my thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs..

Theresa said...

I will continue to pray for you Sweet Friend. Love, hugs and prayers for better health! Love you

Dear Jenny,
You hold a special place in my heart. I think of you often and how generous you have been to me over the years. I pray for pain relief for you. Please check in once in awhile and let us know how you are doing.
Big Hugs,
Linda

Rita said...

Betty said...

Dear Jenny,
Life is so unfair! I really don't understand it and sometimes I get so angry. Why does something like this happen to such a good person?

I'm going to miss you so much. You are a real trooper and have hung in here for so long. Blogland will not be the same until you return!

I will check in from time to time to see if there's an update.

You have been so kind and understanding to me. Your support during Reid's illness has meant so much.

I wish I could snap my fingers and make all the pain go away. I will be supporting you (and your family)with prayer. Love, Betty

Julie Kwiatkowski Schuler said...

You will stay in my thoughts, and I wish you all the best.

Stef said...

Pondside said...

I am so sorry to read that you are in such pain, Jenny. You have supported so many people through their trials, and been such a source of positivity (is that a word? I'll use it anyway) I hope that the trials you're about to endure will prove helpful in the end and that we will hear from you now and again. Hugs to you.......

Hi Jenny,

Although I too stepped away from the blogging world for the last couple years, my thoughts of you and your amazing help in opening up a creative window in my life have never left. I am sorry that your health issues have taken such a toll over the years, so much so that you need to leave the blog world for now. I know how much you enjoy it. I hope your next pain management endeavor proves successful. Best wishes for you always.

I'm sorry that you aren't feeling better Jenny. I hope to see you back here sooner, rather but later. Later is okay though. We've been following each other's blogs for a long time, and you are one of my favorite people out there. So you do what you have to do and please take care of yourself.
Until that time Jenny...

Maria Gagliano said...

Jenny, I pray you are feeling well right now. SO sorry to hear that you are not well. I came for the Alpha-Thursday (I guess I haven't been around for a while). Praying for you.

Dear Miss Jenny... Thinking that I hadn't linked in awhile, I just came across this post. I am so sorry to hear about your health issues. You will be greatly missed in the blogging world. You brought many rays of sunshine into our lives. Thank you so much for giving of yourself to bring joy to all of us! Hugs and prayers sent your way from Arkansas!

Betty said...

Came by just to see if you might have posted something. I'm hoping and praying my friend.

noexcuses said...

Hello Dear Jenny,

I join with all of the others and pray for comfort, as well as, recovery. You have always been a source of inspiration to me and a lot of my writing came easy with your encouragement. I, too, wish I could snap my fingers and have it all disappear. I pray for you, your family and your doctors. From the bottom of my heart, I wish only peace and happiness for you. You have touched so many with your story and your courage. God Bless you!

Anita said...

Oh Jenny, my heart goes out to you. Though my blogging is so sporadic, you have always been one that I'd stop by to visit. You were around when I first started some 7 1/2 years ago. You have been one to understand the depth of a few emotional posts I've written and have let me know.

I don't know what you're going through, but pray that medicine and miracles will work together to restore your mind and body.

I will continue to stop here when my blogging spurts happen, to see if you've updated.

May god bless you and your family.

ps. Love your infectious smile! And thanks for suggesting an awareness of others who might be experiencing pain.

Maria Gagliano said...

Take care of yourself Jenny! I completely understand needing to take a break. You come first. The internet will always be here waiting if you care to check in.

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Dear Jenny! I hope and pray that you have found relief and rest! I have been away from blogging with our move to Kentucky, and then going from our one little grandddaughter, who is now 4yrs old, to her twin 20 month old sister and brother, our other daughter with their first little 18 month old boy and our son with their first little 14 month old girl.

I just thought about you and your wonderful Alphabe-Thursdays and your wonderful sense of humor and wanted to stop in to say hello and then read this post.

Hugs, hugs, hugs to you my dear blog friend!
Blessings and Aloha!
Maria

Betty said...

I think about you often Jenny. I hope and pray things are improving for you. Miss you! Betty

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are looking forward to a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

noexcuses said...

Hello Jenny!

Just stopping by to say hello and wish you a Happy New Year. I haven't seen updates since May. I do wish you comfort and peace as you rest. I haven't been very busy blogging, but do think of the wonderful people I've met here...you especially...because of your kind words and encouragement to everyone! Be happy and enjoy your "grandlittles" as much as possible! Love, Liz.

jenn said...

jenny, i was rereading a comment you'd left on a picky post, then clicked over to your blog. you've not given an update since may. i understand the challenges you face must be horrendous. i pray that you've had some good days here and there.

Hi Jenny! Just stopping by to say hello...

Jim said...

Hi Jenny ~~ I'm peeking in again, hoping for an update. It can't be super great or I know you'd be running another meme. You have some of the best of blogging friends here. I was checking on one of my Xenter Tales and just popped here from there. The Xenters and the Alphabe- Thursday's were super enjoyable for me. And for sooo many others, thank you for hosting for such a long, long time.
