Welcome to Jessica's Hope. This blog is designed to keep friends and family up to date on Jessica's journey with cancer. In all of this we have to always remember, just as Jessica is doing, that Christ is our ultimate hope. He is the sole reason that we live. To Him belong all glory and honor.

Little Jessi

As mentioned on Facebook, Jessi had a tracheostomy and a feeding tube ("g-tube") put in through the wall of her stomach this past Friday morning. She is doing well but is obviously in some pain from the surgeries. She is quickly heading to 6 lbs. She has been receiving some breastmilk for a few weeks now. The doctors have observed that she is tolerating it so well that she can start receiving almost 100% breatmilk with some "fortification." Thanks is due to God who has blessed us in so many ways. Thank you also to those who are continually going to Him on our behalf. There is no timeframe as of yet on when Jessi may be coming home.
