The Call No Parent Wants To Answer! On January 19th we received a call no parent ever wants to receive. Valley Health, Winchester Medical Center was treating our son, Benjamin, and when they attempted to intubate him the ballon burst causing respiratory arrest. They made a second attempt to intubate him; resulting in cardiac arrest.  After 20 minutes of CPR they called us asking if they should continue or let him go. "We are ministers of life so do whatever it takes for life!" We told them. After 5 minutes they found a pulse! We told them we were on our way. They said "take your time, we don't expect him to be here (alive) when you arrive." Our reply, We declare 'Life!'"  Packing 4 children, contacting my employer, making arrangements for our dog, and getting ready to travel to Winchester, VA became our top priority! When we started our drive, I turned on our radio and "Speak Life" was the 1st song playing! Isn't our God awesome! As we were traveling they needed to perform an emergency tracheotomy; this surgery took 2 hours. When we arrived he was with seizures every 20-30 seconds...fever...tubes everywhere...  What did we do? We began to pray, praise, and declare "Life!" With Benjamin in Ohio for the past year it has been challenging setting balance with our life and his care. Prayers are always appreciated. For His Glory,, Larry and Ana Walters.

Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support as we pursue every possible avenue for Ben's healing.
Prayer Warriors, you continue to be our front line of offense against the enemy. It is time to take those prayers to the next level. We have not lost any ground with Ben's health. But we are not seeing and changes in his health.
Secondly, a cutting edge medical device will be available for Ben's care in the near future. We will need favor with the manufacturer, doctor, and staff.

Along with this device, we are still seeking a hyperbaric Chamber where we can barter use of Ben's device for time in the chamber.

Finally, due to the fly epidemic last summer, we are seeking to move Ben closer and where he will receive the level of care any parent would desire for their child.

Again, thank you each and everyone for your prayers, love, and support during this part of our journey.

~Selah.

Jeremiah 8: 22  Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

Yes there is and healing is the children's bread.

Praise Yah Benjamin is in Ohio! He did what we were unable to do. Thank you for your financial support, prayers, and notes of encouragement.

This is not a sprint... We have been running this marathon for nearly 3 years now. As you can imagine the emotional stamina needed for such a race has been taxing.

Still we praise the Almighty for each and every miracle along the way!!

Benjamin has lost 2/3's of his original body weight...this is good. However, his feet have dropped, his legs are showing signs of atrophy, and his communication skills have diminished due to lack of real therapy and aggressive treatment options.

A bariatric chamber, a TeslaMaxx stimulation machine, and using stem cells from his own body are the three top items we have researched. In order to provide these would require a substantial financial investment.

Also, as we have discovered, care from a nursing facility at best is just "maintenance" for Ben. Even when he is showing signs of marked improvement with aggressive physical therapy, once the insurance dollars expire so does the quality of his care.

The only true way to manage his care at the optimal level will require us to purchase an ranch style home... Set up a main (easy access) room with the necessary medical equipment on site (including the 2 pieces of equipment mentioned above). A hospital bed, respirator, hoist, and chair. We would then need private nursing care for a minimum of 18-20 hours per day.

Nothing is impossible with Yah. He is our Provider and source of strength. So we will not doubt but are moving forward in faith that these things will be provided.

This is why the group name has changed from Help us Moved Ben2Ohio to "Ben's Care At Home."

Realistically, we will need $250K for the home and set up. Then it will cost nearly $150K per year for his care. The stem cell therapy would be in addition to these needs. And they do not include the needs already in our family of 6.

Now that you have been updated please pray that Abba will move heaven and earth on behalf of our family.

Until next time,
Shalom.
Momma giving Benjamin a kiss!

In a few weeks Benjamin will reach the 2 year mark. 2 years he has been in transition between life and death. 2 years of medical complications. 2 years wondering, waiting, praying, hoping, and believing....
Abba he is in Your hands...
We believe You are not finished with Benjamin. And we believe in the promises you have given concerning his healing.
Until then we watch and pray...
A recent visit with Benjamin...

Praying and believing for your son, Benjamin, to be restored back to great health. Declaring Nothing missing, nothing broken, and wholeness in His body, in the name of Jesus. May the peace and comfort of the Holy Spirit rule your hearts and minds and encourage you! Though so very tragic in this moment, I pray this experience will bring God glory and that Benjamin will be able to speak of his testimony of God's healing and restoring love! I admire your strength as parents to Benjamin and as children of our great Father, God! ♥
