Not a ton to share tonight. The big event of the day is that Jaime was moved to the “skilled nursing facility” today. It sounds like Steven will likely be moved there within the next day or two. Jessie continues with roughly four hours of intensive therapy six days a week. Sunday is her “day off.” Yesterday she was able to sit up in her wheelchair for 2 hours which is a new record for her!
We have had several people contact us asking if there is a way they can send money or gift cards for those who are staying and helping at the hospital (rather than making a meal). Now that Jessie, Jaime and Steven are all able to eat whatever they would like, we are making many trips to and from the local restaurants so that these three don’t have to rely on the lovely hospital food for every meal. If you would like to help out with providing non-hospital food for these three, they would absolutely love some gift cards to their favorite restaurants and stores. Safeway, QFC, Red Robin, Jamba Juice, California Pizza Kitchen and Visa gift cards would all be very helpful. If you would like to help in this way, you can mail these to the following address:

You have all been soooooooo incredibly generous to all of us already, but we just thought we’d throw this out there because we have received so many questions specifically regarding restaurant gift cards. Every single thing that you do, whether it’s making homemade meals for the caregivers, sending sweet cards, messages and comments to us, donating to the relief fund or helping connect us with people who can put a smile on the kids’ faces – all of these acts of kindness take some of the weight off of our shoulders and help us to love and care for Jessie, Jaime, Steven and Jeremy better. We cannot express our gratitude enough. Thank you.
