100 lb. Club - Love For Jillegal
12-01-2005, 01:26 AM
We know that G's daughter has been diagnosed w/a heart condition. And we want you to know how much we love, appreciate & miss you. Fishy & Young Jilly have picked up the reins on the Journal Buddy Thread, and they're doing a fabulous job, but that doesn't mean we don't still miss our :queen: Jill.
So here it is! A thread for everyone to leave their love, kisses, well wishes, browni...oops, I mean LOVE for Ms Jillegal.

Jill, I have such a fondness for you. Like so many others here you welcomed me to the group. You always jumped in and answered any questions I had and offered lots of guidance to me when I first started out here. We're in the same corner of the world and have family that share another part of the world together. I value your advice and opinions and love reading your posts - they're so funny and personal.
I'm very sorry to hear about your daughter. I'm certainly thinking about you and your family and I wish you all the best. Be strong.:hug:

Jill, I second what Dee has said. You were incredibly welcoming to me when I joined and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. :grouphug:

Thoughts and prayers for you and your daughter and family.
Missing you ~ every time I hear that "I will survive song" it makes me think of you and every time I remember your hiking story ~ I smile. You keep us all smiling.

How thoughtful, SAPF! :yes:
What can I say, Jilly? You're funny, inspirational, smart, thoughtful, unselfish, and warm-hearted, and we miss you. :hug:
I hope that G's daughter is able to get all she needs to treat her conditions. :goodvibes: She's a brave little girl.

Your family is in my heart and prayers. I don't post much but I always look for you G's post they bring inspiration and a giggle. Miss you.
Thanks for all you've done for us....

Oh, Jill! I'm so sorry. From posts on a computer screen alone your humor, strength, caring, toughness and goodness shine through so brightly. You're a great person, I'm here in Brooklyn sending you all the best thoughts and wishes.

I did not know about George's daughter. Sorry to hear that. I have noticed your absence and miss seeing you around. You have been a great friend in this journey and have helped me immensely. I hope and pray that all is well with you and yours. Know you are missed and loved.
12-01-2005, 01:43 PM
Oh no!! I didn't know this was going on! Oh, Jill, I'm just so, so sorry you and your family have this challenge before you. My heart goes out to you. Please know that you all are in my prayers, and that I'm sending lots of positive vibes your way. :goodvibes :goodvibes
You've been through a lot together, you and George, and together, you'll see your daughter through this. I'm sure she's a very, very special girl, and I know that with your strength, wit and spirit, you will do so much to sustain her through this scary time. I'm just so sorry it's happening.
I'm looking forward to hearing good news from you whenever you're able -- I, and all of us here, are here for you no matter what. :hug:
Much, much love......

Jilly, I had no idea. :( My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to you tonight. Love always. :grouphug:
12-02-2005, 01:45 AM
Jilly--you, George, and the girls are in my thoughts and my heart.

Thank you so much for your kind words, everyone ~ G and I are both very touched! :^:
While this is all extremely scary, the cardiologist and geneticist in Baltimore (I'm starting to think we should hold our next 3FC get together at John Hopkins :dizzy: ) have created a calming effect on us because they have a plan in motion to deal with this. Mariah's aorta is extremely fragile and dilating dangerously, but both the drug therapy and surgical outlooks are pretty good. Its sort of a waiting game right now as the battery of tests are processed, but we're confident she's receiving the best possible care. :)
Mariah knows all about 3FC. In fact, she's my helper when I do the "Timmy coffee runs" and if I even attempt to order a Canadian Maple donut, will say "What do you think the chicks will have to say about that??" :D
Thanks again, you wonderful people! :hug:
Look at that spunky smile and tell me she's not a fighter! :carrot:
12-02-2005, 02:46 AM
She looks like a real sweetheart Jill. Your in our prayers.
12-02-2005, 07:54 AM
I was only just getting to know you, having only been around a few months.
All this just breaks my heart and puts tears in my eyes.
The Lord be with you all, doctors too.
Your daughter is beautiful!
12-02-2005, 09:00 AM
Jill, glad to hear that the doctors have a good action plan. What a little darling. Thanks for checking in to keep us posted.
12-02-2005, 09:44 AM
Jill, it sounds like she is getting excellant care! All the best to you and the family! :grouphug:
12-02-2005, 10:55 AM
Thanks for taking the time to update us and it sounds like the outlook is great. She is just gorgeous.

12-03-2005, 03:24 PM
OMG! Jill! You also have a big chunk of my heart here at 3FC. Just sending you my good vibes and some of those superpowers that it takes to sit in hospitals and wait. Love and kisses!
12-04-2005, 10:18 AM
Jill! I just heard. My heart goes out to you. I will pray for your family for strength during this time. :hug:
12-04-2005, 06:28 PM

12-06-2005, 09:43 AM
Jilly, I am so sorry to hear about this! I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner but things have been a little nuts here, too. Thanks so much for posting the picture! It's always nice to have a face to put with the good vibes (as Sarah would say :D ) and thoughts we'll all be sending your way.
We miss your wit, wisdom, and ribald sense of humor (okay, i particularly miss that last one :devil: ) around here. Your family will definitely be in my thoughts!

Jill, I just got back from vacation. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
