Dear Family and Friends:
Our thoughts and prayers are with Margarita, Dennis, and their entire family. Sadly Ommy, their 22 year old U.S. Navy son was declared brain dead following tests at Baptist Hospital. The investigation is still on going, but Ommy will have a full military honor’s funeral in California. We ask for continued prayers for this family. Omni has two older siblings. We were honored to have them here at the Vineyard Family House.
Nathan passed his “swallow test” and as of yesterday was able to eat his first meal in 3 1/2 months! His mother, Shell made him his favorite, potato soup. His tracheotomy is now “capped”. He speech is so much better. He is walking with little assistance now. His lungs have re-generated lung tissue and his oxygen levels are maintaining at 90-93 % on room air! Nathan is a miracle! Your prayers have been awesome!
Colinda continue to take chemotherapy in the morning and somedays, radiation in the afternoon twice. She is “hanging in there” she tells me. She gets super-tired between the treatments. Her cousin, Amanda is right there by her side every day. She believes she has 3 more weeks of treatment. She asks you please keep up those prayers.
This week we will learn if we have made the “final list” for the Impact 100 grant. This grant will finish the renovations, add a generator to power both the main and carriage house and add a “stair chair” to give access for house guests to the second floor. Keeping families together near their sick loved ones is the ministry of the Vineyard Family House.
Our volunteers have been working hard to open up Carriage House #2. We had two requests for this one room just this week. The need for this unit has out-weighed want. Thanks to all our volunteers that come here every week and assist us!
Blessings to all of you, Love Always in His Name!
