Rachel Update! Her mom called me this afternoon and told me that this morning she tried to write something. It didn't really work because she's on so much medication right now, but that kind of attempt is AMAZING! They also took her neck brace off and set the breathing machine to a level that allows Rachel to breathe on her own but the machine will be able to tell if she needs help. So keep up the prayers and the messages! When Rachel is awake I know she's going to love to read all of the notes for her!
This just proves the power of prayer and how strong our Ray Ray is :) Keep fighting Rach
Keep fighting Rachel! We know you can do it. On behalf of the Ohio Twistars All Star Cheerleaders we are praying and fighting with you all the way. We love you. KC and the

Another Rachel update :-) She looks terrific!! She is breathing all by herself now (not hooked up to a machine). She has been writing little things to her parents, she asked for ice, just amazing things. Kenzie and Una if you have more to add please do!

I am very proud of you Rachel. i am very glad that yuo are getting better. just hang in there girly!!! love, Lindsey Lou
JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT EVERYONE AT
I'm glad so many of you are coming :-) Just so you all know, we will be selling T-shirts and some other things near the ticket office with 100% of the profit going to Rachel's medical fund! We'll be selling at around 6:30 until the end of the 1st quarter.
The shirts aren't exactly that exciting (TWHS football shirts like we threw out to the crowd last year), and I think some water bottles, but we are going to sell them this year and instead of putting the money in our general account, we are going to use it to help Rachel and her family out! So it's for a good cause, buy 5 of everything OK? :-)
SOUNDS GOOD TO MEEEEE, did her parents tell you she did a cheer yesterday? Not sure which one, but she used her right arm and did the entire thing, words and all :)
hey rachel how are you doing me and the twistars are thinking about you we miss you at the gym!!!!!!!!!!!! people at my school are saying they heard about you they are also thinking about you . tonite isaw your sister playing volleyball see kicked butt she was awesome well just saying hi you are in my prayers get well soon and i mean SSSSOOOOOOOOONNNN!!!!!!!!!!! i love you lauren and the

hey how is Rachel?
Rachel is doing well :) She had a little bit of a set back on Sunday that will prevent her from starting rehabilitation at Children's Hospital today, but they are hoping that she will be able to go to Children's over the weekend or next week. She is starting to move the left side of her body just a little bit so that is awesome. Her right side is moving just fine and she's been trying to put her foot on the ground to get up (yesterday she wanted her cheerleading shoes) :-) She is still at OSU hospital for now (on the 8th floor) and can take visitors until 10pm. Once she moves to Children's her visitation hours will be set up a little differently. Please continue to keep Rachel and her family in your thoughts and prayers! All of you have been wonderful, thank you!

We all want Rachel to be cheering with the team but it's really hard to say how quickly she will be recovering. Her update is that she is now in Children's Hospital and starting her physical therapy. She's doing soooo great and hopefully she will be able to at least come to one of the Football games. She is still a very big part of our team :-)
Meredith - i just issued a TRIPLE DOGG DARE CHALLENGE to our ENTIRE MAGIC posse' to have AAALLLLLL of our fam sport buttons for Rachel on Sunday at the Blast - so girlfriend.....ya may need a bigger bag!!!! Ya know we're easy to spot in a crowd so either find us or we'll find you cuz if I know our fam at all - they never back down from a challenge!!! lol SEE YA SUNDAY!
I have a lot of requests for buttons for this weekend and I will do my best to accomodate everyone! We can't have more made in time for Sunday's competition, but I think we should be OK. Rachel will be flattered to know so many people want to wear a picture of her!! :-) Any donations that can be made for the buttons would be terrific because 100% of it goes directly to Rachel's medical fund!! WORTH EVERY PENNY!!
Hey Meredith! Come find me i wanna buy one of those buttons for rach. at the compitition. Ive been so busy and havnt been able to make a donation so ill just do it for the button! - This is tiff from BCE by the way! Good luck at
