Latest Journal Update

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas everyone and hope you are having a wonderful day. We have much to be thankful for. Some may have seen Jessie walking with her theratrek in the driveway. It's a posterior walker and has a bicycle seat that she can use for support. We help her move it some, but once she gets in her legs start moving. A few years ago she wouldn't budge in that thing. Her doctor saw a video I took of her using it, and he was so impressed. He couldn't get over it. We started in the spring once it got warmer and she started out with jus a lap. She has built up to three laps and the past week she has done four. We're very proud of her. If you see her out beep and wave. 
Everyone else is doing good, too. Katie is working at Children's as a RN, Sara is at Thomas More studying Spanish and international studies and getting ready for lacrosse, and Dom is at Cov Cath and loving it very much. Thank you all for your continued prayers. We are very appreciative and it means the world to us. 

Have a Blessed New Year.

Sincerely, 
The Russo Family
