Spirit Night

Thought I'd give an update on sweet little Talbey.
The main focus at this point is still his kidneys.  
He's able to drink, but still needs a feeding tube.  
He has also began physical therapy.

One of the biggest highlights recently was to take a ride in a wagon.  
First time to be out of his bed.  Big brother Gavin (5) got to spend some time with him pulling him around.
You know Gavin misses his playing buddy.

Here is a cute tshirt they are selling to help with medical costs.
  Also there was a fundraiser (Spirit Night) at our local Chick-Fil-A.
The turnout was impressive!!  So many are supporting this sweet boy and his family.
I read on the facebook page that the staff at CFA was overwhelmed with how many were there but were very thankful for the organizers/volunteers how helped serve, clean tables, etc...  

Here is Talbey and his mom, Kari, who finally got to hold him after 18 very long days.  
I wanted to share so you could put a face to your prayer.  :)
She is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

She owns a little boutique in town with the cutest things.  
One of her most popular items is a hat with rosettes.  
At the Spirit Night, a few of us wore ours :)

Levi was in a great mood.  I think he's starting to develop his love for Chick-Fil-A like his brother :)

Also, for anyone who's interested, you can find 'Healing For Talbey' on facebook and read all the updates and give some encouragement to the family.  There are also a couple of sweet videos.

Thanks always for your prayers.

What a nice blog note for such a cute, deserving little boy. I've been following them on Facebook. Such strength and devotion from his family and the community as well. May God Bless them all.

I have been following them on face book and getting up dates. What a precious family. We have been praying at school for him.
