Last night was Jaime and Steven’s turn in the spotlight. They did a wonderful job in their interview with King 5! If you didn’t have a chance to watch last night, you can check out the interview and story on King5.com using this link: http://www.king5.com/news/local/Couple-leans-on-love-as-they-recover-from-tree-accident-191145961.html
It has been a busy week for Jessie, Jaime and Steven. Yesterday (Wednesday) morning, bright and early, Jaime and Steven were taken back to Harborview to undergo their knee manipulation procedures. The ultimate goal of the procedure was for the doctors to break up the scar tissue that has built up in their knees so that they can make a better recovery. The procedure went well for each of them, and Jaime and Steven were happy that the doctors were able to complete the procedure without having to actually make any incisions. The doctors were able to assess the area of Jaime’s quad that she has been having some pain in, and they determined that her body has actually generated a new piece of bone that is “floating” in the middle of her right quad. They moved it slightly so that it will hopefully not cause her as much pain in the future. Jaime and Steven both spent the night at Harborview, and returned to the skilled nursing facility this afternoon. They enjoyed visiting with Jessie last night and this morning before they left Harborview.
Jessie went on an outing to the Museum of History and Industry today. She absolutely loved it and wished she had more time to check out the exhibits. She passed out valentines to everyone on her rehab floor and enjoyed a surprise Valentine’s Day dinner from a few of her friends. Today she did some new things in therapy, with mixed success. Below you will see a picture of her doing one of these new therapies, the tilt table. The tilt table is a therapy that helps her put weight on her legs and reintroduces her to being in the vertical position.

This is what Jaime and Steven’s CPM machines look like in action.

One of the Harborview nurses who cared for Jaime and Steven after their procedures yesterday made these for them today! Soooo kind!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all of our family, friends, and the wonderful people who are supporting the Owen-Mayer family right now. You have no idea how much we love and appreciate you!
