Journal entry by Betsy Foreman

Thank you for everyone’s continued prayers, love, and support.  Jessica continues to grow stronger and gives full credit to God.  Her tenacity and loving spirit encourage others and inspire us all to be better people and to show Gods love on a daily basis.

Jessica’s speech is very clear, she is walking with a walker (with her therapists ONLY), exercising (sometimes for up to 90 minutes a day!), and is gaining more independence to do things like make her bed, get to the bathroom to brush her teeth, etc.  This is all very exciting news and I know we are all SO very proud of her.  

When visiting, please remember to follow the diet and movement regulations.  She is to use her wheelchair for all activities and only get out if transitioning to a chair.  Jess is trying really hard to follow the advise of her medical team and this is why she is doing so well, so please help her by doing the same. 💜💕💜

Also, don’t forget to sign Jess out if you are taking her out of Davis and to let a nurse know when you are back. 

Jessica has truly enjoyed reading everyone’s comments and wanted to post an update.  Here is what she wrote to share with everyone...

I am so thankful for all of you praying for me and helping me so much during the hard days.  I’m getting better in so many ways and I thank God for putting such wonderful people in my life. Right now I have physical, occupational and speech therapy daily. They are helping me to get better and stronger. I know it’s improving and so close to walking again one day! I use a walker every day and it feels so good. In all honesty there is so much to share but my memory is lacking.  I do feel like just writing this message is an improvement! I wish you all well and I hope to see you soon!
