Monday +75 (8:00 PM) Third Update

We just received a call this evening from the transplant center and Jackie's CMV test today was once again negative. This is very good news and increases the odds she will head home soon.

Bruce, I think we all understand why you blogged the precautions. I know you are trying to protect her and appreicate that. If she can go thru what she has we can do our part by being very careful. So you go Bruce! Looking forward to both you getting to come home. You have done a great job. Thanks again for the updates. Chloe can stay at Nan`s house until all is well.Nan

I agree the blog was not harsh. It is necessary. I am sorry that you guys won't be coming home for a while. I am proud that you are taking such good care of Jackie. Tell her we are still praying. We love you both.

Jackie: I'm so sorry the trip home has been put off for awhile but it will happen, hopefully soon, but it will.
Bruce: If you think your rules are strict, they are NOT. This is just plain reality and that's how it has to be. Even if a person is feeling fine, think about how many people you come into contact with each day. You have no idea what kind of germs can be passed from one to another with no knowledge of it. Strict rules, I think not.
I love you both and can't wait until you come home.

Thanks for filling us in on what to be careful of when Jackie comes home. Looks like that might be soon. These are things we need to know, and if you don't tell us, who will?

Nobody minds the restrictions; everyone will just be happy to have her home. What you didn't mention, but probably should, is that she will need some time to rest, recuperate, and just enjoy being home again.

So Jackie, when you get home, please harden yourself to JUST SAY NO when you don't feel like having company around - even if we are really fun people who are not sneezing, coughing or a health risk. We will understand. On the other hand, please DO tell us if you feel the need for some company, or some help. We'll be there.

Keeping our fingers crossed on the tests!
