Good news today! When I walked into Jaime’s room this morning she was sitting up, eating a bowl of soup! You have no idea how truly AMAZING this is. She is talkative and glad to have her loved ones around, and seeing her doing so well is such a relief to all of us. We have so much hope! She was looking forward to getting to go on a “field trip” to visit Steven for the first time, as well as Jessie in her new room on the rehab floor. She is going to be moved out of ICU and we are thrilled with that.
Steven is still in the ICU and unfortunately his condition is pretty much the same. Please pray for Steven!
Jessie started rehab today! She is able to receive balloons, flowers and gifts now that she is out of the ICU- but she’ll be there for a while, so if you are thinking about sending her something you don’t necessarily need to do it right away. Neither Jessie, Jaime or Steven are receiving visitors. We’ll be sure to let you know if/when this changes.
One of the things Jessie has asked for us to get her to put on her wall is a poster of Kenny Chesney 🙂 We have sent Kenny a message through Facebook, sharing Jess’s story with him, and we are hoping that he’ll sign one for her and send it to her. If you have a minute, it would be AWESOME if you could also send Kenny a message (go to his Facebook page and send him a private message) telling him how amazing Jessie is and how much you’d appreciate it if he’d send her something personal. Wouldn’t it be cool if he actually did it? We’ll let you know!
Thank you so, so, sooooo much to all of you wonderful friends who have made us meals. Our refrigerators are filling up and we are so grateful! Please continue to spread the word about this family, and especially about the relief fund. We are so appreciative of the prayers, well-wishes, cards, photos, meals, donations and LOVE that you are pouring out on this family. God Bless each of you!
