We Saw Jessie!

We just saw Jessie come out of recovery on her way to PICU. She is breathing on her own and is moving her right side already. It will be a while before we see anything on the left side. She only lost 2 units of blood - your prayers have been working! Dr. Carson said she did great and "expects great things." By the way, Dr. Carson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom today . . . .

We get to go see Jessie in about 30 minutes. We can't wait!

Love you all,

Yeah God! Get a mental picture of what just played out at my house. I ran outside to my daughter to let her know Jessie is out of surgery. Kaity(my daughter -5th grader at Stuard) was jumping on the trampoline at our neighbors house with her friend Addy. I yelled " Jessie is out of surgery- she is doing great!" The 2 little girls dropped down from the trampoline and hugged each other "yeah Jessie!" they screamed...Addy ran in to tell her mom. We may be geographically in Aledo but our hearts have been in Baltimore ALL DAY with you.

My thoughts have been with you for weeks and especially all day today. I used to live in Ft W and my daughter came down with seizures when she was about 4. She was also treated at Cooks Medical in Ft W. She is 22 now. We moved to New Hampshire years ago and she developed intractable epilepsy. But seven weeks ago she had a left frontal resection up here in New Hampshire(DHMC). Drs did not give us great odds 50/50. But with God's help she is doing GREAT...just like Jessie will. I have seen first hand how God works with the DRs...God bless all of you!! I really know that Jessie will be fine.

I just found Jessie's story today, read the entire blog and have accomplished absolutely nothing at work!

Isn’t God GREAT! I’ve been following the surgery all day today on the Internet and have just seen where Jessie is out and you’ve finally gotten the chance to see her. I can NOT even imagine what this day has been for you – let alone the last ten months!! I know that it’s only by God’s grace and prayers nationwide that you’ve had the strength to persevere. Jessie is absolutely amazing, a testimony to her upbringing and God’s faithfulness. Am continuing to pray a “double portion” for Jessie’s healing and rehab! Give that precious little girl a hug from me!

Love to you all,

Dear Father in Heaven, Thank you for listening to our prayers and for being so gracious in answering them. You gave us the miracle we were wanting - hardly any blood loss and a surgery that was 1/2 the time it was expected to be. We thank you. Thank you also for guiding Dr. Ben Carson and his team, and for helping Jessie's body react so positively. Thank you for sending Cris, Kristi and Jessie's grandparents much peace, love and comfort. May we also ask that tonight you please help Jessie's body begin to heal and for her parents and grandparents to get the rest they need. Please also send many guardian angels to watch over Jessie as she sleeps and heals and until she is ready to be moved to a regular hospital bed. We thank you for loving Jessie and her family and for watching over them like only You can. In the name of Jesus Christ - Amen.

Dear Jessie,
I love you so much. You bring me such happiness - and laughter, of course. I wanted to share something with you. I have never prayed harder in all my life for anything or anyone - ever. It was a great experience for me and I am thankful for the privilege to do that for you. I never knew I could pray so hard- thank you Jessie. I also didn't know I could be so worried over someone else, like I have been for you. I wish I was there right now and I would be putting up pink ribbons on all of the trees on the JHH property. I would do that so people would see pink and know it was for you, and to remind you that so many people loved you and have been praying for you. Jessie, you have carved out a huge place in my heart which is just for you. I love you so, so much and I am very happy that you no longer have R.E. You are my special pinkalicious friend and I am giving you the biggest hug ever right this minute! Your Friend - Caren

These next few days will be a trial of your faith;I remember when both my kids had brain surgery.It was so hard the first couple days,I learned from my kids that some things bothered them.From my son the mylar balloons little sway,the bright lights and the group of doctors,interns & residents in and out of the room;my son asked for a note on the door,Keep out.My daughter after two days was doing better.I learned from my kids not to hover over them;to let them be normal;that is all my daughter wanted was to be treated normal.It was hard not to treat her special or kept asking how do you feel? I was scared taking them home from the hospital.The hospital was a secure environment;when I got them home,I was on my own.They both could not wait to get to school.What if someone bumped them or they hurt? I was told from my kids;"Mom,when I hurt or feel something is wrong,I will let you know;do not keep me in a bubble,I want to be a normal kid" I bit my tongue so much!Having a couple dogs around the house helped alot too!The dogs grew to know when the kids were going to be sick,they also deferred some of the pain.When I felt the kids needed a rest,I asked if they would give each of the dogs some lovin'time(it is a good quiet time)While you are there in the hospital;look around at all the miracles happening and the little bodies with such tremendous trust in their parents and doctors!That is the trust you must have in God.Christi, no more tears,this is all Gods plan;what are you going to do with it? You could maybe since you have the publicity;really go with this and promote Jessies condition and help children across the United States and bring awareness to so many more people.Just a passing thought.My thoughts pass so quickly.You as parents will learn so much this week;not only from Jessie girl,but from all the children you meet.I wish you well and pray for your strength to get through this new path,travel it well !!!!

Many of us from work have been watching the progress on the blog as well as the Channel 13 link today. Emails have been flying around with a lot of excitement. Everyone is so happy that the surgery went as well as it did. I pray for a speedy recovery and that the next couple of days be as positive as today was. In the videos you both looked very much at peace, all-be-it understandably nervous, in such a difficult time. May God continue to bless Jessie, her medical staff, and your family. Brandon, my 9 year old, asked today out of the blue how it went. We hope for all of the best. Hang in there!!!

Did anyone read Jessies little friends comments?? Caren her friend from her hometown wrote something like.."I didnot think I could love someone this much,miss you...I wish I could tie pink ribbons outside of Hopkins in the trees and gates." could someone please do that? Take a photo and then send to WJZ tv or to Jessies hometown tv station? I am disabled and live 50 miles from Hopkins.Otherwise I would do it myself.
What joy and peace to give Caren to know that everyone in Baltimore cares so much.Please someone just tie the ribbons take the photo and then take the ribbons down if Hopkins complains ( although I do not think they will)
Thank you for your generousity to anyone that can do it !!!!!
