Steven was very excited about a visit he and Jaime had from his mom, brother Robin, sister Tammy and niece Sophia on Friday. They brought him a great poster with pictures of his family that is hanging in his room now. Steven and Jaime have been busy on their CPM machines since their knee procedure. Jaime has already noticed that it is easier to flex her knees since the procedure and both her and Steven are very motivated to work hard and do well…they don’t want to have the procedure done again 🙂
Jessie received a wonderful gift from the generous principals in the Northshore School District. They arranged for her to have a personal shopper from Nordstrom come and bring her some new clothes and shoes. She was blown away by this thoughtful gift, and it definiely lifted her spirits. She spent some time watching the Cougar basketball games this weekend, and is definitely missing her work and her students. Weekends are sometimes tough for Jessie in the rehab unit. She has very little therapy(sometimes none at all), and Jess really loves working hard to meet her goals, so it can be frustrating to not be able to make a lot of progress on Saturdays and Sundays. She is a fighter and she wants to fight as much as she can! She did enjoy visit from one of her biggest (little) supporters on Saturday, as well as her weekly visit with Toby 🙂
Thank you for keeping up with the progress of these four amazing “kids”. I am so honored to be able to share the joys and the triumphs, as well as the challenges and the trials, on their journey to healing. We are nearly two months in to this new way of life, and we have made it this far thanks to the support and love that each of you has poured out on us. Thank you so much!
