November 9. 2009

The social worker from the hospital called me today. She said Jared has another UTI and has been taking antibiotics for the last 4 or 5 days. Jared's surgery may be delayed. They are going to run some more blood tests, if the infection is cleared up the surgery will be on November 13th if the test shows he still has the infection then they will reschedule.
The nurse also told me that Jared's tube feedings were discontinued today. Jared eats enough to sustain his own life now! They will still use the PEG tube to give him water and medicine until he can drink thin liquids.
It's hard to imagine that only a few months ago doctors were telling me he might not survive and if he did that he probably wouldn't wake up from his coma.
It's so amazing to watch God's work...


  1. Amazing progress! Keep your chin up, I hope you are able to see him soon.

  2. Just read your entire amazing story. Praying now for your family.
