We arrived last night around 6pm and went to the apt to meet the landlord. The apt is perfect. Close to the hospitals and within walking distance from a Starbucks, sushi, Papa Johns, and the grocery store. We got in last night with plenty of time to unload and get ourselves somewhat unpacked and then Jeremy walked down the street to pick up some dinner. This morning we walked over to grab some coffee and take in the sites in the park. We are 2 blocks from the St Johns river and it is an absolutely beautiful area.

Tomorrow we have to be at the hospital at 9 am to meet the Dr's and nurse practicioner and then Avery has another MRI in the afternoon. It will probably be a long day, but more planning needs to be completed prior to her radiation starting. This week will be busy with evaluation exams and meet & greets and will keep us running. Luckily Jeremy is here with us. New cities give me anxiety so I feel better having someone here with me to help me figure it all out. Of course I was a pro in Memphis when we left, so now we are back to being the newbies in Jacksonville. We'll get the hang of it though!

Avery is doing really well. It's amazing how much quicker it feels like she is picking up on things now that the chemo isn't weighing her down and making her feel ishy. We are amazed everyday by her new discoveries. There is a nice rug on the floor here and it is helping tremendously with her crawling. Before long she'll be cruising right along!

This is our new place...



  1. Starbucks and Papa Johns...within walking distance?!? SOLD! Now I'm totally coming to visit. :)

  2. I know, right? There is even a sushi I hear 2nd date with Harper????

  3. The apartment looks wonderful Jen! I'm so glad things like this are falling into place for you guys considering everything else you're dealing with right now. We're thrilled to hear that Avery is doing so well! Keep up the great work! You're amazing!
