Sat. June 4

9:15 am Update
Another uneventful evening. Garretts blood oxygen is hovering around the 40% range, which is still dangerously low for organ damage, but not as bad as it has been. Carbon dioxide is creeping up (not good), and pH could use some improvement. Visint hours for Garrett are 9AM, 4PM and 8PM if you would like to go back to see him. Almost every day we are there from around 10Am till 10PM, but one of us (prob Janell) may leave for a birthday party today. Expecting a Miracle. More Later

3 PM update

Wow. At 2:45 Wednesday, I posted how the doctor told us it wouldbe hours, or a day or two at best. Uhh, excuse me Satan, kinda losing the battle right now aren't you! I think I am slowly beginning to see glimpses of what the Holy Spirit meant when I kept hearing "Behold the Mighty Hand of God", a few weeks ago. Oh, I'm well aware of the graveness of Tiny Mans condition, I still live in reality. But I also live in mercy and grace. Which interpreted means, Garretts still here. Sitting alone in the waiting room, I'm able to listen and watch other people just beginning their journeys and crisees, and can sometimes discerne where their hope lies. Fear is a strong and fiery dart, and the shootist is amply loaded. But maybe, just maybe, God has told him that he can't have Garrett's life just like Job's was hands off. We're post 72 hours and no real changes either way. Sure wish I knew the game plan. But I have read the back of The Book and we win. I guess we're in halftime. War Eagle, Tiny Man! Remember that comeback last November.

Everything is still stable at garrett Coaster Central. Expecting a Miracle.

9 PM update
I have about 5 min of battery left, so this will be quick. No change in his stats. Still expecting a miracle. And thanking everyone for praying for him and the staff and us, at 8:00 Central. I've been instructed by my pastor to be here in the morning, not at church, so I will obey. General visitation is at 9AM, 4PM and 8PM for one hour and we would love for anyone who wants to, to visit and pray by his bedside. WE will probably be here around 9-10 AM till very late. Sweet dreams Tiny Man, Daddy loves you.


  1. I found Garrett's facebook page and this blog this morning. I don't know you guys personally, but I'm from Alabama and I'm well aware of what happened there. Prayers are coming to you from Manila, Philippines.

  2. Through one of my friends on facebook I found the Prayers for Garrett page. I have just now finished reading this entire blog. At times I smiled, teared up, felt joy, pain, and the goodness of God. Stay strong and keep holding on to hope in God. Hope is all we have some days. God bless you. Praying for Garrett in Little Rock! I'm a Roll Tide girl from Bama but hope Garrett will be saying War Eagle soon. I gather from your blog you are Auburn fans. : )

  3. We are all praying for that miracle. Many people you do not know are connected by the web to Garrett and you all. We believe in the power of prayer and we lift you up and pray for God's continued Grace and to continue to give you comfort and strength.


    Your blog has amazed me and I just want to say thank you for your testimony to our Lord and Saviour. This song touched me and reminded me of you. I will continue to pray for healing.
