Day 3

We have seen several encouraging things today! The most exciting thing was watching her gain more alertness to her surroundings to the point where she actually gave her kids a hug!! It seems as though, now, when she starts to wake up, she is much more calm and aware of the people around her and her situation. Her medical status hasn't changed much, but good news is she has been hooked up to a feeding tube and has been recieving nutrition, her body is accepting the food and responding well!

I'm sorry I didn't get an update out sooner, had some technical difficulties... (operator error... ;) ) and then I flew out to Portland to get Zach so he could join the rest of the family here. That took up most of the day. Upon arrival, we were all suprised to see that Sherry and Dennis Yarbarough came in right behind us!

Please keep up the comments and prayer- it is our hope that within the next few days, we will be able to show her this blog so she can read all of your encouraging comments!

Blessings to you all! More updates to come in the morning after rounds.

  3. Tonya,
    Thank you so much for keeping this blog updated. It's nice to be able to keep up on her status and the amazing work of the Lord in her life. We will continue to keep Kris in our prayers along with Clint and the rest of the family in our prayers. I am so thankful I was able to be there and see her and let her know she was in our prayers. You are such a good sister, auntie and sister-in-law! I know this has been very emotionally exhausting and I am so proud of how you have stayed so strong! I love you!

    Love to all,
    Cousin Tina
