The March Of Dimes recommends a $22 donation for walking. (Don't let that number stop you though, give whatever you can.) After you are registered then come find us in the Family Team's Tent on Grand between 13th and 14th. If you ordered a t-shirt from Rachael she'll have it there for you and you can pay her for it then.

Jimmie can't wait to see you all!! He'll be there with his big blues eyes and his big smile! (-:

Unfortunately Jimmie has dropped about 7 ozs this past week. He's been sick and not eating well. He is just so skinny. At this point he's so lacking in body fat that he's chilling really easily. Long term concerns over battling low weight for a long period of time center around the development of his organs. He's not needing to be hospitalized or anything, but he does need to do better. He just loses weight so fast and so easily. He is back under 15 pounds again. So they are adding back another tube feed and trying to find a fortifier that doesn't cause Jimmie to puke. Pray that this little tiny guy can put on some fat. Fat prayers are what we need! If you've followed Jimmie from the beginning you'll remember those! (-:

Thank you for praying!



  1. We're praying for him to gain!

    Love you all,
    Adrian and Janelle

  2. I am not sure if you have read this blog but she did a whole post on what she feeds her son and how well it has been for him. Just a thought for you :)
