Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support, prayers and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Due to the high volume of texts (from all of our loving family and friends) that we have been getting inquiring as to his status, we are asking that you please come to this site, and we will do our best to get updates posted here as often as possible.
Our story begins with a very bright, active, well-loved (and loving!) 3 year old boy. Waylon started running a fever a week ago (July 7th, 2017). Within a day or two, he started having stomach pains and diarrhea. By Monday, it was decided that he needed to be flown here to Children's Hospital in Omaha for treatment. He was diagnosed with an E-Coli infection. It has wreaked havoc on his little body. His kidneys are not functioning normally so he is on dialysis in the Intensive Care Unit.
Waylon has not been able to sit up, eat, drink or communicate very much. His Mommy and Daddy are there at his side. We all thank you for the love, support, good wishes and most of all, many, many prayers you are offering for Waylon. As you can imagine, we feel so frustrated as we wait for further news and struggle to respond to all of the inquiries. Although we would love to be able to talk to each of you, we hope that this site will help to keep you all in the loop.
