Jess Moves her Left Toes!

Thank God and thank you for your prayers!

Jess just moved the toes on her left side so God has allowed the surgery to enable her to regain some nerve functionality. When she first woke up from surgery she was not able to move anything below her waist. Her doctor said they will know soon whether she will regain feeling on her right side. It will take some time for her to regain the feeling in her legs. If Jess successfully regains feeling to a certain level then she will undergo surgery again to install metal support in her spine. The two verterbrea that had collapsed were removed during the surgery last night.

The doctor confirmed that it will be at least 10 days before Jess will be able to travel home. He also said that Jess's hip issue will not be treated in San Diego. That problem has been assigned a lower priority and is planned to be treated back in Texas through either surgery/radiation or just radiation.

Please pray for movement on Jess's right side.

In Christ,
Jim Kaylor
