Tonight has been a good evening. Jerrod has been watching some funny TV shows with his cousins, and Carly. He is now visiting with Luke Richardson and Brittany Adkins. They are having some special time together. Aaron Parish and his mom Toni were here earlier too. Aaron played Jerrod him a song on his piano horn from Cracker Barrel. It has been a treasure to see him smile with friends and laugh a little. We are all tired and are going to try to be in bed a little earlier tonight. We are sitting and visiting with Russ Horn, Donna and George Richardson, Lisa Sellers and now Brittany and Luke are out here. The nurse is getting Jerrod ready for the night. He is nervous about tomorrow, but friends have kept his mind off of it. We have taken turns going in and just reading your precious emails to him. He is so encouraged by your notes and your love. We love you all - good night and we will be updating more in the morning. With love, jerry, Carla and Carly

A prayer pager has been provided for the Shelton's.  Lisa Mack is brining it town and it should be at the hospital tonight.  The number is 806-721-2965.  Callers will get a message with instructions.  The pager simply vibrates when the number is dialed, letting the family know they are being prayed for at that moment.

We continue to receive e-mails (over 750) through www.medicalcenterofplano.com by selecting 'Patient' and 'e-mail a patient' from the pull down, as well as people e-mailing the family directly.  It is so encouraging. 

The surgery is scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday).  They will go in at 11:30am, but will not start the procedure till around 1:30pm.  The procedure will take either 4 or 12 hrs. depending on what they find.

In support of Jerrod, tomorrow (Thursday) all the women are asked to wear velour jogging suits - so every time you see one, remember to pray.  If you have any questions, please call Kara at 806-544-2756.

You can send e-mails with pictures throughout the day to rhorn@conetrix.com and we will post a few on the page under "Notes & Stuff".

Jerrod had a good night last night.  He also enjoyed breakfast this morning - he said "the bacon was good and thick, like United's".  There are no tests today, so he is getting to rest.  We received another 250 e-mail responses through the hospital (totaling around 600 total responses) . . . the people in the hospital that receive the responses had to come up a few days ago to meet Jerrod - they have NEVER seen this kind of response (please keep it up, it is so encouraging).  Jerry has been reading the e-mails to Jerrod this morning.
