Below you’ll see a couple of pictures of Jessie’s room, which is looking quite bright and cheery these days. It’s filling up with pictures of people who love her, and cards with warm words of encouragement and hope inside. Jaime is in a bit more of a temporary room on the surgical floor and Steven is still in the ICU, so we haven’t been able to decorate their rooms quite as much as Jessie’s…yet 🙂
Today was a good day for Jess. She had a full day of therapy, which includes Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Recreational Therapy. She also got to have a good, long visit with Jaime today and they were both very thankful for that. Jaime had a low-key day, resting and allowing her body to heal from yesterday’s surgery before she heads into her final (yay!) surgery tomorrow. Tomorrow’s surgery will repair her knee and the hope is that after that she’ll be able to move around a little more (and get into a wheelchair) since the injuries to her legs will all be repaired and stabilized. Steven was much more alert today, and is very much hoping to be able to get his feeding tube out tomorrow. He remains in the ICU, but doctors (and his family) are pleased with his progress over the past couple of days.
Thank you again for the support you are lending to Jessie, Jaime, Jeremy and Steven right now. They know you are cheering for them, and are so thankful for all of the ways you are loving them and caring for them in the midst of this challenging time. I also want to express my personal thanks for how so many of you have shared your appreciation for this blog. This family is so loved! I am fully confident that God is going to use these four to do something greater than any of us can imagine in this world, and I am honored that I get to be a witness to their story of healing and hope.
