Christmas Day

Merry Christmas from Kerri and Cody to all that are reading these updates. They send their love and appreciate all everyone has done.

Kerri continues to improve and increase her strength daily. Tonight she plans to change Ansel's diaper. Cody already completed this test, and will be onhand for coaching.

The best news is the kidneys are finally starting to dribble some. Cheers erupted from the nursing staff upon the news.

Ansel continues to do well. His feeding rate was increased again today. A blood transfusion was given to replace blood taken for testing. His respiration was somewhat high, and the treatment tonight will be for Kerri to roo him.

Kerri and Ansel continue to make good progress.

It's Heather Barlow (Andelin) again. I've been reading the updates quite often and I am so happy to hear about the progress both you and your son are making. You will continue to stay in our prayers. Merry Christmas!

Kerri, Cody, Ansel & families,
We have finally had a moment today to check this site to see how you're doing. How wonderful to read that there is continued improvement. We've been praying for all of you. This has not been the way you would have chosen to spend Christmas, but won't it be interesting in years to come to look back on the events of this year. I suspect that you will have very tender memories of this particular Christmas. We wish the very best for all of you.
With love, Gene & Barbra Van Shaar
