Quick update tonight…
Jaime received another text from Mike Smith this morning. He has been incredibly gracious and continues to check in and let Jaime know that he’s thinking about her and he cares. Jaime is very appreciative of him! Unfortunately, she has had a bit of a setback in her healing process. Her right quad has had some recurring pain that seems to be getting worse rather than better, and there is a chance that her femur is not healing correctly. She will see her leg doctor on Valentine’s Day to have it reassessed. Speaking of Valentine’s Day, Jaime and Steven will be interviewed on Wednesday by King 5 for a story about their love that will be running on Valentine’s Day! Hopefully I’ll have more to share with you after their interview on Wednesday afternoon.
Jessie had her first outing with her recreational therapist today. She was able to leave the hospital for the first time to go to the Seattle Aquarium. Jessie had mixed feelings about this experience. On one hand she said that she was excited to get out of the hospital and breathe some fresh air, but on the other hand it was challenging for her to be in public for the first time in her wheelchair. She struggled to accept the thought that her life may be in a wheelchair and she is looking forward to putting in the hard work to walk again. She was very grateful to have Aunt Terry and Kathy with her on this first outing.
Thank you for your love, prayers, and endless support!
Jessie at the aquarium!
