Jenna Benna's Fight
Our little Jenna Benna is in the ICU recovering from brain surgery caused by a aneurysm and blood clot.
Now we are asking for PRAYERS that the swelling stays down and a full recovery.
As we all know, with life's devastations, prayers, and recovery the after math is always BILLS from the ambulance, helicopter transfer, surgery, at least a month long stay in the hospital, and therapy.
If you can find it in your heart to donate any amount you wish to help the Naylor Family focus on Jenna's condition and recovery. Ease their worries on their financial situation.
We appreciate all your help and support.
We are now going on day 27 and even though Jenna still has a feeding tube and a main line IV, she is progressing remarkably well with her physical therapy, to the point of even sitting in a wheelchair for a few minutes each day. Even though she has to be assisted in getting out of bed and into the chair because of the deficit on her left side, she insists on standing for a few moments before sitting down. Can you say DETERMINED??? She still has a crooked little smile but the twinkle in her eye is getting brighter every day.
The following is some of a posting that Tammy wrote earlier today that gives you a little more insight into how Jenna is doing: "Every day we do a little more than we did yesterday. This has become a motto every morning. Today we drank out of a straw ( I forgot that this is a learned trait), we sat in a wheel chair longer, we focused a little bit better, and we whispered a little bit more. Jenna now has permission to YELL at me (she got a kick out of that) to get my attention. Her vocal chords are too weak to speak, and she can't eat yet because she is too weak to swallow, applesauce and oatmeal will have to wait."
On top of everything that the Naylor's have going on, they were involved in a car accident on the way home the other evening. I'm not sure how Tammy can keep her sense of humor but here is what she posted after it happened: "Soooo in true Naylor fashion... The kids and I were involved in a car accident after leaving Jenna tonight. We were rear ended on the 60. Carmyn and McKenna were transported with back pain. We are fine and will be discharged soon. I'm honestly waiting for the punch line...or a picture of me next to Murphy's Law... "
In closing this late night update, I again want to share part of a post that Tammy made the other day as she says it so eloquently"¦ "We have amazing people that will help us and root for us, and cheer Jenna every step of the way. Most importantly we have GOD and the prayers of so many. To know that you are not alone in agony or even defeat is priceless. To watch the power of prayer work before your eyes is nothing short of breathtaking"¦ God is Good!!! Keep those prayers coming!!!"
22 days and counting in ICU, is a pretty penny, but our Jenna Benna is priceless. I would love love love to reach our goal for them, but there has been less and less activity on the site. If you wish to make a donation please do soon I may cash I out soon and deposit into an account we set up for Jenna at Chase by the end of the month:)
Thank you thank you for all your continued prayers, thoughts and healing energy for our family.
I love you Jenna!! You got this girlie:)

You are right girlie "This sucks" , but you are a strong young lady. You are on to therapy even if it is just sitting up on the side of the bed, and in true Jenna form, "No you can stand up yet Jenna" one step at a time :).
Now let exercise those vocal cords so we can hear your beautiful voice we have all been waiting for.
I LOVE YOU Jenna Benna
