    and her fan club since we left Houston in May The only thing that didn t change The weather in Houston Still sucks So the three of us woke up at the crack of dawn and drove to Houston yesterday to see all of our old friends Ostensibly we we re there to see Dr Smith Jamie s plastic surgeon who performed the skin graft surgeries for Jamie We were really there to say hi and show off Oh and Uncle Dean came to film some interviews with Jamie s team of medical folks We didn t get everyone on film that we wanted but we re planning on coming back to Houston to get the rest of the interviews Anyway there were a lot of tears shed by Jamie mom and all the ladies we saw at St Joe s not being sexist here it s just that I Dr Lin Dr Thai Dr Smith Michael Anthony Cody Luke and the other guys are really tough and cry on the inside Everyone was blown away by Jamie s luxurious locks of hair and how well her skin has healed The biggest treat was seeing Jamie stand remember no one in Houston had seen her stand before In fact no one had seen her stand from November 13 2008 to May something Jamie took pride in walking up and down the halls of the hospital and when she wasn t walking we pushed her around on her walker which has wheels Jamie probably gave 40 hugs while she was there everyone was so happy to see her It was like old times Dr Lin was the cutest Apparently he had spent the week before our arrival spoiling our surprise visit though I think mom forgot to tell him it was a sur prise Anyway there are a bunch of pictures at the bottom of the post so check them out Thank you to all of our friends in Houston for taking such good care of our Jamie while she was in your care Also thanks for letting us barge in and own St Joe s for another day It felt good to be back On another note Jamie s spoke at the Blanco United Methodist Church last weekend and rocked it She wrote about this already and no I wasn t in attendance but I wanted to give some impressions that I ve soaked in from everyone else Jamie did amazing I don t think Jamie wrote that but she did Uncle Dean produced a video that played to the congregation prior to her walking speaking on stage This was the first time anyone had seen this video and it was very good very intense as most videos of Jamie tend to be Something I ve said several times in the past couple of days is I can t believe how normal we thought this was this was pretty intense we looked over some old pictures of Jamie s legs

  • The J.A.M.I.E. Group » Thanks Blanco
    wasn t nervous I don t know why I wasn t nervous after all it was my first speech I guess I just knew that everything was going to go smoothly So the halfway marker came up and Ken introduced me with a video that my uncle Dean made and then I got up in front of everyone to tell my story Let me add that it was my fourth day or so to be walking on my own without a walker So I stood up and walked by myself up to the front I definitely feel as if I did touch those that were listening and I felt a whole great deal of satisfaction after I gave my speech as if this is my new calling Standing in front of a microphone was pretty easy and I did love it People even did come up to me and told me that I had good public speaking skills and that I spoke very well in front of everybody It was definitely another good day in my life and I do know that there will be more speeches in my future 1 Comment Anonymous October 24 2009 Hello Jamie The craziest coincidence happened to me today October 23rd I am a student at the University of Texas at Austin and today Friday I had a presentation in my Professional Speaking class The topic I had picked was bacterial meningitis Throughout my research I found various articles about your inspiring fight against meningitis as well as the recent bill that passed and included some if the information in my presentation Later on in the day about 8 40 PM I was shopping at Hobby Lobby up on West Anderson and I believe I saw you shopping there If you saw a girl

  • The J.A.M.I.E. Group » 10/6 – Jamie's Birthday and ACL, wrap-up
    meaning it was an awesome frenetic non stop electronic rock light show but unbeknownst to the crowd the University of Texas Marching Band was sitting backstage right next to Jamie and her crew When Ghostland started one of my favorite songs And The Band Marches On the UT band assembled on the stage and started to rock along with Thomas beats and Aaron s vocals It was pretty great and the crowd was really into it Afterwards Jamie got some quality time with Aaron and Thomas and then said so long We ll see them again in Dallas on Halloween All in all Jamie had a fantastic birthday weekend We are so happy we got to share it with so many of Jamie s friends frankly we re just happy that Jamie is still with us enjoying life You may have wondered how in the world Jamie could be getting around at ACL Ordinarily Austin City Limits is very difficult to traverse There are thousands upon thousands of people trying to get from stage to stage to see their favorite performers I think there were a total of eight stages and everyone traverses the same routes more or less across Zilker Park Well ordinarily it would be tough for Jamie to see her favorite performers and it was made even worse by the much complained about rainstorm that hit ACL this weekend So it was muddy Very muddy So presented with all of these challenges how did Jamie fare Pretty well Jamie drove around the park on a motorized scooter provided to her by a friend of Jamie s and Cris family Tommie This scooter was awesome Jamie got through the crowds and the mud with ease And if that doesn t sound awesome enough Jamie was able to take

    AAD So I missed all of the early appointments with Dr Sharma so I can t tell you too much about what went on there but at one of those meetings he recommended that we look at AAD then he set up a meeting with one of AAD s reps who was driving down from Dallas Well we were BLOWN AWAY by the things we were shown by Bernie the rep for AAD Bernie as you can tell in the videos is an amputee he became an amputee after being a victim of a random drive by shooting His hand was messed up badly he showed us pictures of it Here s some video from that meeting ideoUrl http 3A 2F 2Fv16 nonxt8 googlevideo com 2Fvideoplayback 3Fid 3D3929f05c03ba5eeb 26itag 3D5 26begin 3D0 26len 3D86400000 26app 3Dblogger 26et 3Dplay 26el 3DEMBEDDED 26ip 3D0 0 0 0 26ipbits 3D0 26expire 3D1271608980 26sparams 3Did 252Citag 252Cip 252Cipbits 252Cexpire 26signature 3D41FF6E755F86AD4BD2A72691A22AA03E8459F87C D63F99BDBDF9BF90D09C706C222A617EFE13AE0 26key 3Dck1 thumbnailUrl http 3A 2F 2Fvideo google com 2FThumbnailServer2 3Fapp 3Dblogger 26contentid 3D3929f05c03ba5eeb 26offsetms 3D5000 26itag 3Dw320 26sigh 3DuLs9cxlVApiW8o2AXKWVDKz2 fo messagesUrl video google com 2FFlashUiStrings xlb 3Fframe 3Dflashstrings 26hl 3Den nogvlm 1 type application x shockwave flash As you ll see on the video the technology that AAD is developing is amazing AAD is the only company in the country world that works exclusively on upper extremity prosthetics and they have the results to prove it The demo model that he showed to me mom Jamie and two other amputees that were in the same meeting is representative of the kind of prosthetic Jamie will be outfitted with The prosthetic will consist of a glove or a socket that Jamie s hand will fit into On the inside of the glove will be electronic sensors These sensors will sense when Jamie s arm hand muscles move and will move individual fingers according to those motions There are two sensors per finger one contracts the finger the other releases it It is pretty damn amazing Because Jamie s hands aren t uniformly shaped there may be some fingers that this doesn t apply to Note last Monday at the AAD mothership in Irving they told Jamie exactly that So on some of her fingers she will have the sensors individual fingers and then on the fingers were there is less available bone there is an extremely new technology that is in place that would require some pins to be inserted where the finger would be and then a prosthetic is put on that finger and then you rely on electronic sensors to move the finger as you can see I barely know what is going on with this yet but I will Sometime soon Btw that picture is from Jamie s PTOT session following our meeting with Bernie he came to St David s and talked with Bob and Kerry about what they could offer for Jamie Getting advice from our trainers has proven invaluable because they know the right questions to
