First Weekend at Shepherd

We have learned in these past 6 weeks that things slow down on the weekends. The same is true at the Shepherd Center. Jennie had just one therapy yesterday (speech) and Sundays are a day of rest. This helps the patients gear up for a long week of work. My mom and I have been working with Jennie over the weekend and she is still continuing to make progress. She is really working hard on lifting her arms, especially the left one to grab for objects and to hold our hand. It is very obvious that she is having to think very hard and it takes a ton of effort for her, but she is getting it. I will be travelling home today. Please keep my mom in your prayers as she is here this week with Jennie. ~Jesse

  1. SO glad that Jennie is still making progress. It's such a long road to go down. I remember those days like they were yesterday. Many prayers are with Jennie and her family.

    Hebrews 11:1
    Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

    Much love,
