Jessie Gets to GO HOME ! It's Time for a PARTY !

I have two really exciting pieces of news today!! The first is that the doctors told us yesterday, that Jessie will be discharged on Thursday, August 7th!! Horray! and Praise God! After two months, our whole family will finally be back together again!!!

In honor of Jessie's return, Caren Jennings and many other "angels" are plannning a special evening. All of Parker County is going to have a party for Jessie when she comes home to Aledo. (As close as she is, she has yet to set foot in Aledo.)

On Saturday, August 16th, from 6-9pm at Bearcat Park in Aledo, everyone is invited (and I do mean everyone!) to come and meet our family and Jessie! We really can't wait to meet so many of you in person and thank you for all you have meant to our family these past few months.

There is a wonderful playground for the kids to play on and we'll have a band playing. Weatherford Regional Medical Center is selling peach "Juleps for Jessie" and will donate the proceeds to The Hemispherectomy Foundation -wow! Ridgmar Mall is helping us out with many things and even donating a gift certificate for a drawing that night! We've got some clowns coming and there will be food! It's all starting to come together! We're really excited to be celebrating Jessie coming home to our home. We miss her there.

I know it's going to be a hot August night, but we'll have lots of tents and tables and chairs for everyone. As things come together more, we'll pass that information on to you. If a business would like the opportunity to get involved, please call Caren Jennings at 817-308-8654 or email her at caren@hemifoundation.org and speak with her. She is organizing this event for Jessie.

God Bless you and Thank You again for all your prayers and support. I look forward to seeing you at the homecoming party!!

That is great news!! I am so glad you are able to go home! I am also doing the happy dance right now for you. I wish I lived closer to you so that I could attend what sounds like a very special party. Have a great time. I cannot wait to see the pictures from the celebration. Love always from Baltimore.

Hi Hall Family!!! What wonderful news! Absolutely wonderful! I know she is so excited about coming home. I sure understand that feeling having spent six months in JHH/KKI at the age of 18 months - I really do remember the "excitement" of coming home after all those months, even at age 2. Not all of it, but certain things! Please keep us in touch with Jessie's progress as we all adore her! God bless!

Great news. I think it's about time to change the "About Me" box to "Jessie was diagnosed with RE".

And the music is coming together nicely, Cris! It's been a real joy to be able to provide a little entertainment for Jessie's special homecoming.
