What can I do










Update from 10/21/07 7:15pm

Jerrod is currently in room 613, but will be moving to room 259 in the rehab area tomorrow.

The picture for this post is of CCU nurses Espie & Jenni - they came by on their day off to see Jerrod.  If you would like to fill out a thank you form to the Hospital and nurses, you can get information on it here.

By the way, don't forget the Prayer Pager - when you pray, call 806-721-2965 - it is so encouraging to the family for them to know people are praying.

Below is an excerpt from Jerry's latest e-mail, click here to read the e-mail.

Well all I can say is that all of you must have been praying with fervor. Dr. Morgan came in this morning and said his CT scan was 50 percent better this morning and it must be draining naturally!! So, he cancelled the procedure for today. He said it is still possible that we may have to do it next week, but for right now he said we don't need to do the permanent shunt. Can you believe it? Of course you can. What is impossible with God? It is so amazing to me... but I have learned to not be surprised.

Dr. Moore (the ENT) also came by this morning to talk to Jerrod, he said he is doing some research to see if he can find any other case like Jerrod's with this noise in his ears following this type of surgery. Right now, they are not aware of any other case like it. We are being transferred to building number 2 in the morning to begin his rehabilitation work. He will have another CT scan on Friday to re evaluate the need for the shunt. Once we are over in the rehab. unit, Dr. Moore will do some further testing on his hearing next week. As soon as we are in a new room we will post the new room number on the website.

Jerrod continues to improve.  The plan is for Dr. Morgan to come by mid afternoon for the surgery to put in the permanent shunt.  The procedure should only take about 30 min.  As we have more details, we will update you.

Don't forget that KJAK will air the interview with Jerry again twice today: at 1:30 and 6:00pm.  To see more details, click here.
