October 26, 2010 - The Battle Continues, But the Armor is Strong

Garrett continues to do as well as can be expected right now, and we are extremely grateful for that blessing. His checkup yesterday showed a little hickup in one of the anti-rejection medication levels, but not enough for concern at this time. We still have not recieved a read on the echo, but initial thought was that it looked "normal" (for him that is).

He's going to be an Air Force Cadet for Halloween this year, carrying his head high and pridefully wearing the uniform and wings he recieved from them. He still does not know that he will probably have to go in for more treatments in December and that's helping to keep his spirits high right now.

We appreciate all the continued prayers and support. We're going to WIN this fight!

"For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." Ephesians 6:12-13

Keep the faith!

Hi Ross family! This is Lauren (formerly of the Ronald McDonald House!) I've been keeping up with the blog, and you all have been and will continue to be in my prayers. JD, tell Garrett and Jessie that I got a puppy when I moved to Nashville (I think they will like hearing that - if they remember me!)

Just a note to let you know my prayers for you continue. Hug your family close and know that the God of peace is with you. May He continue to richly bless you & yours, JD.

Hi there Ross family. This is Mr. David. Sandra Pilcher forwarded me this blog and I've watched the video, read the blog and been amazed. Garrett, I think of you often buddy and Miss Margaret and I keep you in our prayers. We will continue to follow your progress and hope to watch you play ball or do some mutton bustin.
Cowboy Up!
Mr. David
