From Julie,

I don’t even know where to start.

A little over a month ago, my world stopped. I have gone from adrenaline to crushing sadness to survival mode. Throughout it all, I have felt the prayers and the Peace of God. Currently, I am so encouraged and filled with hope.

After 23 days of being on VV ECMO, Danny’s lungs have finally recovered enough from ARDS to function with just the ventilator. He has made HUGE strides in the last week after starting to wake up on Monday. His determination will help him greatly in the rehab process.

There is still a lot to figure out, especially in the cardiac realm. BUT one thing has been constant and very apparent....God’s hand on his life. Our story is not done yet!!!

The overwhelming support we have received has BLOWN ME AWAY. I will never be able to adequately thank so many people. This is a long road and the stresses that have been removed and alleviated from this situation have been incredible due to the generosity of multiple communities. ❤️ Most importantly, I have our families to thank. Our parents and siblings have been my greatest encouragement, staying by our sides. The sacrifices they have made in this time are astounding.

Please continue to pray for healing, and for Danny as this nightmare is just now becoming his reality.

Most of all, thank YOU.
