Jessica was having a little too much fun with her Aunt Lydia (Chandra's sister) last night. They had a picture session with all of Jessica's stuffed animals. Lydia spent the night with her and did a great job at keeping her entertained! As you know, Jessica has been unable to drink or eat real food in the PICU and she loves to talk about the food she will eat when she can. Jessica told Lydia a few more things she just loves..."Lydia, did you know I love orange juice, sprite and rootbeer?" After this conversation we were all thrilled when they started introducing liquids into her diet today. It won't be long before she can drink all the oj, sprite and rootbeer she can handle!
Jessica remains stable in the PICU. Her little body is still working too hard when she breaths, so she continues getting help so her body can relax and start working normal again. In the next few days the doctors hope to slowly take her off most of the breathing help she is getting. We hope and pray this happens sooner than later.
The kids in St.George are doing great and are happy to be back at school. They especially love having their Grandma Schmitt with them. They say they want her to live with them forever!
