Jo will be so pleased to get home - she'll probably get better quicker (but only if she lets other people help).
Thanks for the update.

It's good the girls are going to be around to help out. As long as Jo can fight her tendency to overdo things...

I hope Marie can find some one quickly. Pleased Jack reminded Jo that Madge has help. If they had still been in Austria I expect she would have had help from the start. Glad the x-rays show the lungs are improving.

Poor Jo - but it's a measure of the fact that she's finally beginning to feel better when she's now beginning to feel "cribbed, cabined and confined" by the four walls of her room at the San. The problem, as always, is to make her understand that she is still so limited as to what she can really do, and how much of her "up" time looking after Stephen will take once she actually is home. Jack's idea of looking for someone to help in the house is a good one, and I hope Jo will come to accept it. I can also see that he himself can't help but feel somewhat excluded - that he is no longer Jo's first concern, especially while Stephen is still so young - I'm sure that many first-time fathers go through the same stage.
Thanks, Vick - I always enjoy this even if I don't post very often. And thank you too, for posting from the airport rather than waiting until you were home again - it's appreciated.

I hope Jem knows what he's doing...

Excellent way to have a twist with Jo home and nearly ready but not quite. Very likely too with the balance between the hospitals needs and Jem's desire to look after Jo. Glad Jo is listening and behaving. Why do I have a feeling that that won't last!!!

Glad things are going better and that Jo is getting to spend more time with Stephen.

Glad Jo is getting better. It's hard on her not to be able to enjoy the first weeks and months of motherhood properly. Still, at least she is getting to see and feed her baby. Many mothers with TB were not allowed to see or hold their babies and young children.
