Prayers are needed for our sweet boy, Jacob. He is in ICU and has been diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. This is a rare and serious autoimmune disorder. Please pray for him. We believe in the power of prayer and know it will be a long road to recovery but recover he will! Lots of therapy will be needed and we’d like to help this family with the bills and unpaid time away from work.+ Read More
Thank you, Jesus! The day is here and our boy is home.❤️ Special signs, balloons, and decorations, thanks friends!!!
Jacob update: Jacob is getting use to his new leg braces. We got new triple wide size 14 shoes and I think we have finally found the comfort zone. Here is the big news: it looks like Jacob will be discharged on February 1st. This is a full week sooner than Jacob’s goal, to be home by his birthday. We are getting things ready at home and making plans for outpatient treatment. We are so excited but no one is more excited than Jacob.
God will never let go of you Jacob! ♥️
Jacob Update: Jacob wore shoes for the first time yesterday. He was worried how about it was going to feel because his toes are extremely sensitive and the bottoms of his feet hurt a lot. We started with the awesome socks from Salina Mendoza and then very carefully slipped his foot in and it was not bad. Jacob actually liked the soft socks and cushioning of the shoe. Success! Today fiberglass castings were taken of his feet and legs, up to his knees. They are making custom braces to support his legs and help him stand up and eventually walk. Jacob also had an ultrasound again to check the blood clots in his arm and make sure nothing new had developed and everything came back fine. Andy and I received a family binder and attended a conference with the team to learn about the rehab plan and Jacob received a full schedule which includes time to complete school work with the help of a tutor. Jacob also has a poster of his OT and PT goals so we can see what we are working on and check them off as we go. It feels so good to be informed and know we are moving in a forward direction. We are beyond blessed with so many of our prayers being answered. God is so good. ❤️
