Jeremy was alert again today. He continues to do well breathing on his own, but is still getting oxygen through the vent. His jaws will be wired for 2 more weeks, then the wires will be replaced with rubber bands for a few weeks. At that point, he will be able to talk with the help of a speaking valve.
Jeremy's kidneys seem to be functioning much better today and he was actually off the dialysis, although it is possible that he could back on it at some point.
Unfortunately, he still has an infection, and in fact, his fever was a little higher today. They are hoping to culture something specific since he’s off the antibiotic for now. But overall he was better today.
Let's pray this infection gets knocked out soon!
Hey guy! I hope you are doing better, Ihave been to sick to come and see you, major bought with Bronchitis and all. I didn't want to get you sick by bringing all my germs in there with me. I just want you to know that I think of you all the time, and man do I have things to tell you! I can't wait to talk to you, cuz I have a lot to say. It's a bummer not to be able to pick up the phone and call, but I'm just gonna talk your ear off when I get the chance. I also wanted to tell you real quick how much you mean to me. Jeremy, you are a wonderful friend, and I couldn't ask for a better one. You have always believed in me and you will never know how much that means to me. Get better soon, and Wake Up!!! I have to talk to you!!! Love ya oooodles and oooooodles!!!
Just want you to know we continue pulling for you every day.The boys ask about you and have not stopped praying for you. It is just awesome to see a small child pray.
You can picture it in your mind. It fills us up.

You are so strong and such a fighter. You are being held firmly by God's love and we are absolutely here for you in any way when you awaken.
Love to you...Tom.MB,Spencer,Will and Nathan.
