Hi all:

Just got word that Jigsaw is not well. They took her to ER Tuesday and she has sepsis caused from an infection around her port. She was in ICU until today and will have to stay a bit longer but she is so weak and really not doing very well at all. She's taken a major hit to her kidneys and liver from this.

If anyone would like to leave a message for her I'll be certain she gets it.

Please by praying for her.

Thanks so much,
mamaC

Dear Jigs, Although I actually don't know you , but sorta feel like I do. I have lost alot of my compassion in the past years . But if prayers can be accepted that is easy for me. I hope you are feeling better soon. Love to You, horsefly

OMW: The port is the device they put into your skin that allows them to put the meds and chemo into your body w/ or something like that. I couldn't find it to get you a good description.
Sorry

Hi Jigs,

You are in my thoughts during this difficult time. You are such a strong and wonderful person who has given so much to the world already and has even more to give in the future.

The butterflies are everywhere here in Mexico. Everytime I see a caterpillar I think of you.

I am raising more ox beetle grubs. I think you would really like them. I've named them Bernie and Bruce. Bernie is huge, biggest I've ever seen. He is over 5 inches from head to tail. They both should pupate before Christmas and hopefully emerge as adults in time for all our spring field trips.

Here is a link to info about them. http://www.beetle-experience.c.....loeusl.htm

MamaC, I am so sorry to hear that.

I wasn't aware that Jigs was still going thru treatment, I thought she was in remission.

Give Jigsy my love, super big hugs, and I sure hope she pulls thru just like she always has.

Our little trooper just HAS to get better.

Thank ya'll for your sweet messages of hope. I am forwarding them all to Jigs this morning. Anyone is still welcome to post to her and I'll be certain she gets them. As of yet, I have no new updates. I know her foster folks are spending as much time by her side as they possibly can. They do love her so much. She finally got the family she so deserved from the beginning of her life.

SD: She is in remission yes, but she must take chemo one week every 3 months as preventative. It will further out to 4 months, 5, 6, and so forth the longer she stays in remission. This way the cancer cells cannot start growing again. She is such a trooper about them tho. Just before is mama I don't like them, and after is whew we got thru another set. Bless her little heart, no child should have to live thru what this one has, and so many others do as well.

I do thank each of you. Means the world to her and to me. Thanks and do keep posting if you'd like. I'll give an update soon as I have one.

Thanks for the info MamaC, I had no idea she still had to go thru any of that. She's awfully brave and strong. But we already knew that!

Thank ya'll for your well wishes and posts. Jigs will have them tomorrow when she wakes up.

UPDATE ON JIGSAW:

"Thank you so much for all the letters and pictures for Jigsaw. We will read them to her and be sure to show her too. She had a set back last night as her liver was not functioning properly and she was rushed back to ICU. The night was spent getting her stable again and she was closely watched all day.

She is back in a regular room again tonight. She has mostly been sleeping and crying/whining but she was awake and sitting for about 10 minutes tonight after she got moved and had some ice chips.

She said Simon (her dog) and pigs (her guinea pigs). We told her they couldn't come visit but when she gets home we will put them all in bed with her again. Then she said tired and went back to sleep. Lets hope NO MORE setbacks and pray for her body to heal quickly."

Please do keep praying for her and again thanks for the prayers and posts.

Hi Jigs,

Just checking in on you to let you know that you are in my thoughts.

I am so grateful that you have your foster family there with you too. I know they are great folks, just like my foster family. I'm in my 30s and I just talked to my foster mom last week.

Here is a story about a boy and his butterfly. I thought of you when I read it, so I thought I would share it.

The Butterfly in the Bottle By Sanyukta Chaudhuri

Poltu was wide awake in his bed. He had had a marvellous dream in which he had won the football match in the inter-school competition. He was getting ready to receive the trophy when the alarm rang. So loudly that it jarred him awake.

But Poltu wasn't too unhappy at the intrusion. He ran straight to his study table. There, in an empty jam bottle, was the treasure. A colourful little butterfly. How difficult it had been to catch it. It had kept flying away from his grasp. But catch it he did. Without a net, too. And now it was going to be part of his biology project in school.

The biology project required Poltu to submit the study of a living creature every month. Most of his classmates drew diagrams from their books as part of this exercise. But Poltu was going to do something different. He was going to present a live creature - this butterfly.

Poltu loved the different colours on the wings of the butterfly. Red, green and blue. How beautiful it looked when it fluttered the wings. Poltu had made a few holes on the cap of the bottle to let air pass through, and added tender leaves for the butterfly to nibble on. He might have trapped the creature, but he cared for it.

Excited about displaying his exhibit to the biology teacher, Poltu dressed hurriedly, and left for school. His school was walking distance from his house. He took a short cut through the backyard of Sinha aunty's house, a stretch he loved walking through. The breeze was very pleasant as it had rained slightly the previous night. The garden smelt of sweet-smelling flowers, jasmine and 'mogra'. Poltu glanced at his bottle every now and then and smiled at the butterfly fluttering its wings.

When he reached school, gate wasn't wholly open yet. For once Poltu was early to school. A few boys were playing football in the field. Any other day would have seen Poltu joining them without a second thought. But today, he walked straight into his class. He opened the bench window and placed the bottle on the windowsill.

The golden rays of the sun streamed through the glass, on the delicate wings of the butterfly, and added a sheen to them. Poltu's butterfly looked simply gorgeous. In a few minutes, the area was full of boys, even from the other sections, gaping at it.

That day's biology class was the most interesting in a long time. Poltu's teacher was very happy with his initiative and asked everyone in class to thank him as he had made it possible for them to study a butterfly so closely. Poltu felt like a star for being treated like royalty.

While going back home, he again took his favourite route through Sinha aunty's garden. In the bottle, the butterfly still fluttered its wings energetically. On the way, whatever small creature Poltu came across, he felt like putting into the bottle. But he checked himself as he wanted to give breathing space to his butterfly.

Poltu woke up around midnight suddenly. He went to the study table and lightly patted the lid of the bottle. The butterfly did not move. Poltu thought it must be sleeping. He shook the jar some more, but still no response. Poltu was scared all of a sudden. He poured a little water from the drinking-glass in his table into the jar.

The water seemed to help as the butterfly shivered a little. Poltu heaved a sigh of relief. Sitting on his bed, he stared at the jar for a long time. The butterfly was still again.

After a while Poltu got up, and, holding the bottle tightly in his hand, ran outside. The air was so fresh and cool. He went to the backyard of his house, quickly opened the lid of the bottle and started shaking it gently. The butterfly started to move, but slowly, as if waking from a deep slumber. It perched itself on the edge of the bottle and flapped its colourful wings. It waited there for a long time. Poltu also waited.

All of a sudden it began to flutter its wings. To Poltu, the tiny noise of the fluttering wings was musical. Suddenly there was a loud thud behind him, and he turned around. A coconut had fallen from the tree. When Poltu looked at the jar again, he found the butterfly gone. He sat staring at the empty bottle for a while, feeling a little empty himself. But he was happy that he had sent the butterfly back to where it belonged - nature.
