Jadon’s Story: Boston dates and getting stronger

Posted: 14 Jul 2011 08:38 PM PDT

We finally got our dates for Boston. My mommy and I will be leaving July 31. I will be admitted for a 48 hour EEG on August 1. I will have my PET scan done August 2nd. Then I will be released August 3rd and I will come home August 4th. My daddy is going to stay home with my brother this time. So it will just be me and mom but we will be fine. Boston has become our 2nd home so we know how to stay safe. Other than that I continue to make progress everyday it seems like. I’ve always been able to get into the crawling position with assistants. Well just look at my picture. I’m doing it all by myself. No rice and no one making me. Wow this is huge progress for me. God is truly awesome.

Mrs. Kathryn Kuss is in room 4010 at North Oaks.  Pray for her and for her family.

Jimmy Schwartz was admitted to North Oaks today and just moved to ICU room 3006. Pray for Jimmy, his family, and the medical staff caring for him.

Momma is still in ICU, room 3008.  Pray for us as we continue to help care for her.

My uncle, Fred Widas of Roseland, is very ill.  Please pray for his children and grandchildren.
