Tue, April 8, 2014 10:30pm EDT by 10 Comments

On the April 8 episode of ‘The Little Couple,’ Jen finally gets the news that she has waited months to hear — she is officially cancer free! After undergoing rigorous chemotherapy treatment, the mother of two is able to celebrate her final visit when Bill and the kids surprise her in the hospital.

Dr. Jennifer Arnold  finally got the news that she waited four months to hear — she is cancer free! After four long months of chemotherapy,  Jen received a clean bill of health. Husband Bill Klein and their two kids, Zoey and Will, were of course on hand to celebrate the good news on the April 8 episode of The Little Couple.

Jen Receives A Clean Bill Of Health

Jen’s life was turned upside down when she was suddenly diagnosed with cancer, but now the reality star and mom of two can return to her normal life, thanks to her clean bill of health. Jen was overjoyed to hear that she was cancer free, but of course all of her worry was not taken away.

“I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to work and walking into the hospital as a physician instead of a patient, but I don’t think it’s just going to be the flip of a switch,” Jen explains during the episode. “I think it’s going to be a transition time. Hopefully this is just knocking down one of the big stress’ in our lives, and hopefully moving on to some more fun times.”

Jen and Bill entered the hospital one last time to undergo the final round of chemotherapy. Of course, upon completion, the entire family came to congratulate and celebrate with Jen — complete with flowers, balloons and  Will’s favorite treat, cake!

Once the kids left to go back home with their nanny, Jen and Bill were able to talk privately and Jen was able to thank her wonderful, supportive husband for the strength he has shown and given her over the last few months.

“The only reason I could have any strength and courage is because of you. You’ve been my rock through this whole time,” Jen tells Bill in an emotional private moment. “When I’m crying miserable in bed at night, you rub my back and make me feel better. You support me, you tell me everything is going to be okay. It’s been harder as it’s gone on, and you’ve just been getting stronger despite it all. You take care of it all, you take care of me and the kids.”

Wow. These two are really so in love, and definitely in it for the long run. What a lucky couple they are!

Jen Gets To ‘Ring The Bell’

Hands down the best moment of the episode is when Jen gets to ring the bell.

“When you ring the bell, it essentially signifies that you are done. You are cancer free, you’re in remission,” Jen explains, letting us know why ringing the bell is so important. “You don’t need any more chemotherapy. It is a day to celebrate, and we had a couple of folks there that have been really instrumental in my care as a patient.”

Finally, the cancer is gone! Jen, forever being the optimistic, bounces right back. In fact, she quickly agrees to be a keynote speaker in San Francisco — just ten days after her final round of chemo was completed. Nothing can hold this inspiring woman back!

This chapter is finally over, and now the entire family can move on and put this cancer behind them!

Jen Is Thrilled About The ‘Bright Future’ Ahead Of Her

Even though she is cancer free, Jen admits that her cancer scare really taught her something important about life.

“I want to enjoy life a little bit more, and I want to stress a little less,” Jen confessed. “I don’t want to be any less productive, but having gone through this I’ve realized that life is short and I think I just want to better embrace life and not feel like it’s passing me by.”

That is a great lesson to take from such a scary experience, don’t you think?

We could not be happier for Jen and the entire Klein family! She has been through so much these last few months, and we are so excited that she will be able to focus on returning to her normal life as a mom of two. Bill has been so wonderful throughout Jen’s sickness, he truly was her rock. Hopefully Jen can now take some time to relax and hang out with her newly expanded family.
