Today all three of the “kids” got most of their staples out. Jaime had over 200 removed, if you can believe that! She also had a cast removed from her arm. The doctors have still been working at getting her pain under control, but she was feeling better tonight and she will be moved to the skilled nursing facility very soon. One of Jaime’s doctors spent a good amount of time showing her the before and after x-rays from her surgeries and explaining all of the pins, rods and plates that she had put in. He told her that he can give her a letter on “official letterhead” to take with her when she has to go through security at the airport 🙂
Jessie had a big day today. Three of the Seattle Sounders (Andy Rose, Bebeyele Steres and Alex Caskey) visited her and spent quite a bit of time talking to her and hanging out in her room today. She absolutely loved her time with them and said that they were incredibly kind and sweet. They even brought her a jersey and told her that they can’t wait until she can come to a game and that they will have tickets waiting for her! This made her day!
Today was an amazing day for Steven! He is definitely feeling better, and he attributes it to getting to see Jaime the other day 🙂 Although he still has his feeding tube in, he is allowed to eat and drink some of his normal favorites and he is really enjoying that. He had is final (woohoo!) surgery today, and doctors expect that he will be able to follow Jaime to the skilled nursing facility in a few days. We are so incredibly happy with how well Steven is doing!
Thank you to all of you who have written messages on the tab above about Tim and Cheryl. Please keep them coming! We love reading these! Also, a bit of an odd request – we are wondering if any of you out there have experience with large fish tanks 🙂 Jaime and Steven need someone who knows how to break down a fish tank to take apart their 24 and 14 gallon tanks in their apartment. If you have the experience needed to help out with this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks so much!
Thanks again for all of the prayers and love you are sending our way, and thank you for sticking with us. You are so appreciated!
