View Full Version : Hey, remember that thing with my daughter?
12-16-2005, 12:11 AM
Jessica turned nine years old on Tuesday.
No more steroids, physical therapy, or, really, any limitations she didn't have up to March of this year. Just wanted to let everyone know, and thank all of you guys for your support.
Some may remember that this summer, my daughter was in the hospital from April to August, mostly in the Pediatric ICU on a ventilator with pneumonia-damaged lungs. At a couple of points this Spring, we had reason to doubt she would make it to her ninth b-day. Afterwards, she went through a lengthy recovery from muscle atrophy from the paralytics they put you on while on the vent.
Yeah, hellishly unreasonable. But Jessica is a rock, just like her mom, and she pulled it out like a champ. When she wants something, she never quits. And every day she celebrates being better by showing off how she can skip and jump. /images/graemlins/grin.gif /images/graemlins/grin.gif /images/graemlins/grin.gif /images/graemlins/grin.gif
And yes, that's a marshmallow shooter she's got. /images/graemlins/laugh.gif
Oh man, thats good to hear! I spent quite a bit of time in the hospital as a youngster for the same reasons. It's good to know she's doing well /images/graemlins/smile.gif

I've been in the hospital twice in my life for food poisoning... either time was only for a few days.. I can't imagine being stuck in there for that long. Congratulations to you and your family!
Hope she (and all of you) have a great christmas, and be sure to let her stay up for new years if she wants to, she's earned it! /images/graemlins/smile.gif

Good to hear. It's amazing what a child will go through, that most adults would give up on.
My kids have marshmallow shooters also (their's is a little different looking). They love them.
