Pray For Rosie


Update – 5/29

Today Rosie's mom, my mom, and I are all training in the specific care for Rosie. This training includes feedings, diet, medications, and daily hygiene. Spending everyday with Rosie has seemingly prepared us for such care. Last Thursday Rosie had the tendons in her legs lengthened so that her feet will be able to freely move as normal. This was the final surgery Rosie needed before coming home and she will have casts for the next 4 to 5 weeks on her feet. Tuesday I will meet with vendors and therapists to select a proper wheel chair and hospital bed for Rosie's continued need and comfort. We are making all the final preparations at home for Rosie's arrival on Friday June 4th. Yesterday Rosie stood up for the first time in 4 and a half months, with complete assistance and only for a minute. Rosie is scheduled to have her trach for the next 6 weeks. Her baclofen pump is adjusted daily to find the right dose of medicine for maximum potential and comfort. After thorough examination Rosie's eye doctors have determined that due to the extent of brain damage incurred she is unable to see even though her eyes appear healthy. There is hope that as her brain heals with time, her vision may be restored.

Emily is continually loved and gorgeous. We will all be grateful when we have our family under one roof for the first time. Thank all of you for your continued prayer.

  1. Tony,

    We love you all, and are praying for you guys. Your names come up in our household on nearly a daily basis. We’re always thinking of you guys… even when you’re not aware. As I’ve mentioned so many times in the past, please let us know if there’s something we can do for you guys.

    Thank you so much for sharing… we’re grateful when you keep us up to date. I’ll pass this info along to my Facebook friends and family.


  2. Tony, Thank you so much for the update on your sweet Rosa, I check several times during the day and every day. It will be such a blessing when your little family will be finally together at home. We keep Rosa, Emily, and yourself in our prayers always. Give Rosa and Emily a sweet kiss and warm hug from me.

  4. How is Rosie doing? I have her website on my computer at work, and my family prays for her too. Please give her our love and keep your strength for your little sweetheart. You are such wonderful examples of God’s love for the rest of us….
