Thanks again

Just want to say thanks to everyone who was involved with the bunko night. I'm telling you that it was pretty exciting to see the amount of cash that was raised for Michelle, Ryan, and I. It was right around $1200 and I just got a bill in the mail 3 days ago for $1140! Pretty amazing how God works. I'm so grateful to all of you for your prayers and support. We are so humbled by it all. On another note, Ryan continues to do well. They have taken the possible fungal infection off the table. And the tube in her chest is draining less and less everyday. It should be out in a few days. She has been able to continue weening off of the vent and she has been taking her pacifier. The albuterol treatments are now only every 4 hours. She did however have an echocardiogram that revealed that her shunt may be partially occluded. This would mean that she may have to have her full heart repair earlier than expected. This would be doable but not ideal. We really need to get her off the vent so we can get her home. Please pray specifically that the shunt is not blocked. If the shunt is blocked, it could also mean that we would have to consider a tracheostomy. The reason this is being considered is that since she has already been intubated for so long, she is missing out on normal developmental milestones. Thanks again to you all. We are so blessed. Jared


  1. Yes Jared you are right. God answers our prayers, maybe not exactly when we ask, but eventually he comes through. Ryan is living proof. God bless you all.
