Happy Thanksgiving ; Jessie the Flower Girl

http://www.hemifoundation.org

Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone! We have so much to be thankful about this year. Jessie has been seizure free now for almost 6 months, and she gets stronger and stronger each day. We are blessed in this economy to still have our jobs. Everyone in our family is healthy for the most part, and we are almost back to a normal life again. I just realized it has been 2 weeks since my last post, and that is a good sign.

The Hemispherectomy Foundation is doing GREAT! Check out the new website at http://www.hemifoundation.org . Also, we have Christmas cards for sale this year on the website, that feature the ART of some of our children...including Jessie.

Yesterday, we went to Dallas and met a nice family from Rowlett whose son recently had a hemispherectomy. His name is Kenny, and he is doing very well. Be sure to say a prayer for his speedy recovery.

For those of you in the Baltimore area, today, Thanksgiving day, they ran a 30 minute special on Jessie's journey, from the beginning to the end. I didn't get to see it, but I heard that it was very good. It may be on the WJZ website, but I haven't found it.

Last weekend, Jessie got to be in a family wedding. This is Doug and April, and they asked Jessie to be in the ceremony as a flower girl. She did great! Here are some pictures.







Thanks to everyone who has kept us afloat in 2008. We will be forever grateful for you support and encouragement. We couldn't have done it without you all.

God Bless,

Cris and Kristi

Did you see Dr. Carson on the COVER of US News & World Report this week. There's also an article on him under Leaders in the US. Wow girl, you know some important people!

You looked very pretty in your wedding finery.

Dear Jessie and Family,
I have kept up to date with your progress Jessie, you are amazing! I actually watched the 30 minute special WJZ (in Baltimore) had on you yesterday...it was great! You have come so far, I know you are working hard. I hope you and your family had a great Thanksgiving Day.
God Bless ALL of you,
