Colby and your family are in our prayers - be strong!
Will be in my prayers.
Hang in there Jarrod. Your family will be in my prayers.
Lord Jesus, touch this family.
I'm local. I work in burlington and live an hour or so north. Message me if you need anything. I'm good for bad conversation while having a cold beer.
Prayers sent again for your boy, you and your family in these trying times.

prayers sent out for Colby
Jarrod prayers for you and your family.
May your son be calm and at peace in these extremely difficult times with so much that is unknown.
Prayers are on the way......
Sorry to hear about your son. It's really tough to watch a loved one go thru this.
Hang in there buddy.
Praying for your family
I couldn’t sleep and got on here and saw this thread, I had previously missed.
I stopped and said prayers as many have for both your family and Colby.
Having nearly lost my precious wife when our 3 children were very young I understand only some of what you and your family are going through but I still can only imagine watching one of your children go through this.
I can say that your son is blessed to have a Godly family. I know even with that though that as I felt that sometimes as caregivers our spiritual tanks get low and the “why?” or loneliness & even anger can come around as we wrestle to come to grips with a situation that by earthly standards and with our mere fleshly body just flat out sucks no matter how it is worded.
You and your wife obviously have raised Colby well and he has been blessed with incredible strength to fight this disease but I know that all of you want so much more for Colby and the strain can be very real. I pray you have a loving church family that is walking along side of you during this also so they can be Gods hands and feet here on earth to help you with your needs or just for a hug and unspoken reassurance that they are there with all of you.
I wanted to mention the verses before Romans 8:28 starting at 8:26 as it blessed me in one of my times of doubt, when I felt my prayers were going absolutely nowhere past the ceiling and my emotions had hit rock bottom (never trust emotions as I am sure you know but we still have them from time to time).
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
I had read that verse many times before our own personal trials and really never got the full meaning but that is why it is the Living Word and God can give us new understanding,peace,strength,faith,love,mercy and grace as just a few during all times of our or our loved ones lives.
So when I was totally depleted and had ZERO clue what else to pray for or how to word it I would pray the directions in that verse and let the Holy Spirit communicate with God when I was badly struggling.
Not like I have everything figured out even today though but then again God tells us to live on faith and doesn’t promise us understanding things down here on earth but regardless of the situation He will never leave or forsake us.
Sorry for writing a book here but hurting for you and wanted to at least share what God gave to help me (definitely not of my own strength) during our own families trial.
Thank you for sharing here so we can pray for your precious son.
Praying for you all , sorry for your pain.
Thanks everyone for the prayers and well wishes. It's been a full month now and he's still in the ICU.
Dr's told us last week there not much more they can do for him.
It's all about the fight in the dog at this point. It's tough watching him go through all this pain but at least he's off the breathing tube so he can talk now.
Positive side is he keeps saying he's super human, I'm like yes you are. His attitude is on point, that's the biggest hurdle and he said other day he wants the new XBOX1X so he can play when he gets out. So we keep telling picture yourself playing that game in your room at home and focus on that. I told him when your well enough to get out of ICU I'll get you it. Because honestly he has lost 80% use of his arms and hands. But he keeps forcing himself to wiggle his fingers and lift his arms.
Well again I just wanted to update you as to what's going on and thank you all for your prayers. Hug your kids often and make sure you tell them you love them often. So glad I always do both, even after we argue. Thanks again and God Bless
Your son is in my prayers.
