Jack is having ice cream for breakfast!

Saturday, 9:00am

Jack is making a solid recovery from his surgeries and is well enough to have asked for ice cream this morning!

The medical team was able to successfully complete all of the essential testing yesterday and Jack did a great job throughout all of it.  The team was really impressed with Jack’s cooperation!  I was so proud of him!  The doctors now have all of the information they need to make a decision about the next surgery.

So, today is a big day.  At some point, Dave and I will be having a case conference with Jack’s team to discuss the potential for a third surgery Monday morning.  At this meeting, the team will present a plan for surgery and the associated risks.

Thank you again to everyone who has been so supportive and continues to keep us in their prayers!   It truly means so much to us and is really sustaining us through this time.

    What flavour? You passed, with flying colours, well done! Don’t eat all the ice-cream, save some for me!

    Mum and Dad, we’ll keep on praying for you and the whole team as you make decisions today – may you continue to know God’s presence in all you do.

    Yours in Christ,

    Rev. Mike

    Great to hear that Jack is doing well after a pretty rough week. Having gone through a similar week with Lindsay a number of years ago, we can really appreciate how stressful its been for all of you.

    Best of luck with your session today – another big step in the long journey. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for good news.

    Way to go, Jack! Think it is safe to say that whatever flavour you want, you may have. Looking forward to lots more ice-cream when the weather warms up.
    Thinking of you.
    Hang in there Yeildings. June

    Dear Jack
    I hope you get better soon. I am going to pray tonight for you. I want you to come out of the hospital soon so we can play. I want to see your new Super Mario game. Can I play it when I come over.
    Love John John

  7. Jessica says:

    This is such great news! I’m so glad Jack is feeling better and that the testing is complete.
    Jodi, good luck today asking questions and getting all of the info you need. I am always thinking about you and Jack.

    Hi Jack,

    You are getting stronger and stronger every day and we are SO PROUD of you. We miss your smiling face on Sandstone Drive and are anxiously awaiting your return home. We will continue to keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

    When you come back home, we will have lots of ice-cream waiting for you! Perhaps you can teach us how to play some games on DS…we hear you’re quite an expert!

    Lots of love,
    Sarah & Eric

    Dear Jack,

    I hope you’re feeling better. You have to be really brave to go through all that you’re going through. Sick Kids is a really cool hospital. That hospital ROCKS!

    My mom told us about you. She met your mom at the AFP Conference in December. Our family supports Sick Kids. For the last 2 years on our birthday’s in March, we have been telling people to not bring presents, but to support Sick Kids Hospital (Martina visits often for all of her adventure injuries…two broken arms). After reading about you, we would like to invite you to our birthday party in March if you’re feeling better(details still being worked out), and we would like this year, to have our guests donate to Jack’s Lemonade Stand.

    I hope this makes your day a little brighter!

    Big hug to you and your family,

    Evan and Martina
