I have been receiving some emails asking me to update Greg's status. Thank you for asking.
Greg continues to improve in all areas. He recently passed his driving test and now drives and has his own car. He continues speech therapy with Robin and with North Memorial Hospital a few days a week. He has been going to a group called coffee club and enjoys visiting with his friends. Through the summer he is at home taking care of Nevaeh and in the evenings when Jennie is working, taking care of both Nevaeh and Noah. Hard to believe Nevaeh is now in kindergarten and Noah turned one. Jennie is busy working for ACR homes as a nurse. Overall, Greg and family have been very blessed with good health. Greg still needs to improve his speech as the brain sometimes sends mixed words. Please pray for his speech to keep improving.
Dan and myself have come out of retirement and are now re-licensed again to do foster care. We received a call in May to take 3 boys and then an hour later told they weren't going into foster care. An hour after that we received a call to take a special needs baby that needed a lot of care. Social Services said that hated asking us this since we had spent so much time at the hospital with Greg. We said, are you kidding, God has been preparing us through Greg to be able to take care of this little baby. In May we were blessed with a 7 month old girl. Right now she is in her last stage of renal failure and is waiting for a kidney transplant. So now this brings me to you: Could you please keep her in your prayers:
Please pray for our foster daughter Sophia. She is 11 months old and is in her last stage (stage5) of kidney failure and needs to have a kidney transplant. She weighs 15 pounds and needs to be between 20 and 23 pounds. Please pray for her to stay healthy until the time of transplant, not to need dialysis, to gain weight, and for a kidney donor. Please pray for us as we take care of her and her special needs.
Please call Pam at 218-568-4209 if you would like to know more about being a kidney donor.
Here is the web site where you can go to and register to be a donor www.uofmmedicalcenterlivingdonor.org
Once the questionnaire has been completed, the potential donors will receive a call from a member of our living donor team. I am unable to give out her personal information over the internet to get on the donor site, but if you call me I can help you to fill out the information needed to start the process.
Thank you for your continued prayers.
God Is Good All The Time
