Look who got to go HOME today!!!


We are celebrating and rejoicing that tonight, after 3.5 months in the hospital, Jaime will spend the night in her own bed!  She is at home!  After much hard work and determination, she has been discharged from Kindred and will now be able to return to more of her normal routines at home with her beloved kitty, Beth.  We are so proud of her and she couldn’t be more excited! 

Today Steven was moved to a private room at Kindred where it’s looking like he’ll stay for another week or two before he transfers back to Harborview for inpatient rehab.  Jaime will visit both him and Jess everyday.  We have so much to be thankful for tonight!  Thank you, dear friends, for walking this path with us.  Your thoughts, prayers, words of encouragement and affirmation, and the joy and pain that you have all felt along with us has given each of these “kids” the strength they need to rise up and fight every single day.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  5. Jaime — I recently read a quote by Alex Haley : “Find the good and praise it”. Thought it might be hard to see the opposite, it’s obvious that you and your siblings have followed his advice. I am so in awe of your extraordinary progress and courage and keep you in my thoughts daily. God Bless!

  6. Meant to say, thought it might be EASY to see the opposite. My aging brain makes a few mistakes now and then. Hope my comment makes more sense now.
