Update on Little Franklin


Well the latest on Franklin is good news! He is out of ICU and on the 9th floor at Children’s Hospital. They are planning to move him to Baylor Hospital in Dallas in a week or so. They tried to remove the feeding tube but he cannot yet do solid food so they put the feeding tube back in. They took the big oxygen tube out and now just has a little one on. They have started therapy with him. And he does seem to be in good spirits, laughing and smiling. The major thing is there is still no word on the amount of brain damage but it is looking good.

On a side note our Church, Bogata Missionary Baptist, is planning a silent auction to raise some money for the family and I was able to get my work (Lowe’s) to donate to the auction a Hitachi 4×8 Sander. We are still taking PayPal donation at the link below. Since the accident on June 20th we have raised over $300 to help them offset the cost of being in Dallas. Not much but every little bit helps!

We have set up a collection to help Franklin’s family out during this troubling time. If you would like to help out simply click the PayPal link to donate what ever you can, even $1.00 is fine.

All who donate will get a link in this journal. And those who Donate $10 or more I will give a 1 month feature in my journal.

If you don’t want the family to know your name be sure to leave a message when you are on the PayPal page else all name will be put in a cards for the family!

I will also update it as we hear more.
