Valentine’s Day Update!

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.

  3. Jaime and Steven – you two excelled, over and above, on Channel 5 news. You are too cute and fun with each other. We’re so proud of you both.

    Jessie – Funny of you by the pink Toe Truck! That was created by Ed Lincoln, a colleague in my writing class. He wrote the book “Life through the rear view mirror”. He’s a real practical joker. Glad you liked the museum – we’ll have to go there. Keep up the terrific work, kid!!

    Hugs to everyone,
    The Beyers

  4. Aw, this was a really nice post. In idea I would
    like to put in writing

    like this moreover – taking time and precise effort to make a very good
    article…

    however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and in no way appear to
    get something done.

  5. I got this web site from my buddy who told me concerning this web
    site and at the moment this time I am browsing this web page and reading very informative articles here.

  6. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so
    much about this, like you wrote the book in it or
    something. I feel that you just could do with a few p.c.
    to power the message house a little bit, but other
    than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read.
    I will certainly be back.
