Garrett’s Story

Hi!I am Garrett and this is my sister Peighton.  Thank you for visiting our site!  Please read our story!I was born with Spina Bifida, have a VP shunt and reflux.  I am paralyzed from the waist down. My legs don't work too well, so I use a wheelchair to get around! Garrett has Spina Bifida, a VP shunt and Arnold Chiari Malformation. His medical history is very complex to say the least! He has had 69 surgeries and procedures that have required anesthesia. His zest for life, humor and smile draw people to him! Garrett loves swimming, sled hockey, downhill skiing, playing Xbox, listening to music, watching Family Guy and any type of Ghost Adventure shows!  He also like hanging with his friends.Peighton loves listening to music, watching Amazing Race, Survivor , MN Twins, MN Vikings, and pretty much ALL the shows on ABC Family!  She also likes hanging out with her friends. They have a black Mini Schnauzer named Sophie and a white Mini Schnauzer named Daffy that they both adore!  Both are very smart, loving, compassionate, funny and beautiful kids! God is good!PLEASE remember to sign their guestbook!

Day 2 of the antibiotics to kill the bacteria in small intestine. So far, not working. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. Still barely tolerating 20 ml of formula per hour thru J tube (4 teaspoons). Not going to increase tonight since the pain and cramping are bad. Who knows when we will get out of here.

A huge thank you to the Boser family for cooking our family a Thanksgiving meal and dropping it off before heading out to Valley City. It was so delicious and much appreciated.
