Posted on November 4, 2012We have scheduled a benefit at Buffalo Wild Wings in Tyler, where Stephanie worked for three and a half years for November 26th. We will have a car wash, silent auction, and a wing eating contest. We need pledges for the wing eating contest, and item donations for the silent auction if anyone is interested! We need 3 firefighters and 3 police officers to sign up fot the wing eating contest so get the word out and let us know and we will shoot you all the details! The rehabilitation facility will be coming tomorrow to evaluate Stephanie and we are hoping that they will accept her into the program. As of now, each day is a struggle and we are still fighting for her recovery. We are hoping that with rehabilitation, she will be more manageable and will have a better chance at a normal life. Her two children miss her more every day and we need her in a state of mind where they are able to visit her more frequently.
Also, we will be hosting another benefit sale, hopefully next weekend. The money is running low as her medication is costly. We need more items and if you are willing to volunteer some of your time to help organize the sale or even help during the sale.
Thanks again everyone for your time, donations, and mostly, your prayers.

Posted on October 14, 2012Sorry for the delay in the update, everyone is juggling kids, flu season, and taking care of Steph. Stephanie will be coming home to Jennifer's on Wednesday. As she is not yet following commands 100%, she is unable to attend a rehabilitation program. We will be training to be able to meet all of her needs, as there is no longer any medical need to keep her at the hospital. She has started to follow some commands, even kissing Jennifer on the cheek. :) She is progresssing daily and we still need everyones thought's and prayers. The garage sale is still scheduled for next weekend (19th-20th) We still need donations and we need them all in by wednesday so that we can label everything!
Call Jennifer to pick up your donations at 903-372-8014

Posted on October 8, 2012As of today, the hospital has informed us that they will be discharging Stephanie into our care, possibly by the end of the week. She is still not following commands so they cannot send her on to rehabilitation. We do not want her going into a nursing home, that is just not an option, so she will be going to Jennifer's where we can hopefully get her to start following commands and get her into rehab so that she can relearn motor skills and speech. We had to hire a professional aid to sit with her at the hospital during the day when we are unable to be there because she is still aggressively fighting for her freedom!
The aid will continue caring for her once we get her home, and we will have to pay for her extended care through this fund so PLEASE continue to donate!
Also, we are taking donations of items to have a sale in effort to raise more money. We are hoping to have enough to have the sale Oct 19-20, so please let us know if you have nay items you would like to donate. We will pick them up or you can drop them off!
