Meet Jim & Jeanine
"We were reminded of how much we need to take care of ourselves and our marriage and have uninterrupted time to talk, sit across from each other and connect again as a couple"
Meet Jim and Jeanine, caregivers for 20 years for their middle daughter who has had a difficult medical history since age 1 and have been required to be her primary caregivers 24/7.
At an early age she had a bone marrow transplant and treatments. At age ten, Epilepsy began which still continues today. At the age of 17, she had brain surgery to help with the epilepsy. Then, liver and kidney disease set in and has had ongoing surgeries. Recently discovered were tumors on her liver and is preparing for a liver transplant.
Needing to be close-by in case the transplant call came, we sent them on a local getaway for the weekend that provided them with some much needed together time, entertainment to enjoy, and rest in order to prepare for the upcoming needs after their daughters' transplant.
