February 25th

I had a quick visit with Jan yesterday. He is home and feeling good. Betty and Jan were preparing the house for upcoming guests. Jan is looking forward to the weekend of March 9th. It is Will McClean Festival and several out of town guests will be visiting.

Once again Jan would like to thank everyone for their thoughtful messages and cards.

I just spoke with Jan. He is currently in the hospital due to a fall he took yesterday.  He said  he is doing ok and that it looks worse than it is. He is resting and awaiting the Doctors approval for release. He said thank you for everyone’s concern. His phone does not have reception in the hospital and to please understand that he needs to rest and can not respond to all of the calls and messages.

I will post another update as soon as I have more information to share.  - Crystal

Happy Birthday Jan!

Happy Birthday to the man who has been a true friend. You have offered me advice (good and bad), helped me stand back up again and kept my secrets. You have taught me the value of being early(ha),  that it is OK to take risks and that if you screw up you can always try again. You have laughed with me, you have laughed at me and you have always been honest with me.

I am so lucky to count you as one of my closest friends. I hope this Birthday is everything you want it to be, everything you deserve.

Love you! – Crystal

Molly, John and I had a great visit with Jan yesterday afternoon. Jan showed us the collection of cards and notes that you have all sent to him. He asked me to thank all of you for taking the time to write to him and for all of the food that has been brought to the house. It is so great to know that so many care.

Jan is feeling great at this time and continuing with his treatments. Check back often for updates – Crystal

Jan is still going through chemo at this point. He said he was feeling pretty bad, and the he remembered he is going through chemo and has a reason to feel bad. He said after that revelation he is feeling better about things.

He must be feeling good, he got a haircut today and he proclaims “that he is looking good”. LOL. This I have to see for myself! I plan to drop in and check out Jan’s haircut tomorrow and help him write a new post! At be I can sneak in a pic of this snazzy new hair cut while I am at it!

Thank You to everyone for their kind words and well wishes. Jan is reading them all but doesn’t have the ability to respond. – Crystal
