This blog was set up by family and friends of Ethan and Lauren to help support their family through prayer and to hopefully relieve some of the financial burden that Ethan and Lauren have had to endure through this trying time. If you would like, you can donate through the button on the right and your donation will go directly into a bank account set up in their names, or you can visit any Metropolitan Bank in Arkansas and donate funds through an account set up in the name of Cynthia Sieber (Ethans's sister) We have also linked the website to a Facebook page we have set up to hopefully spread the word and have as many people praying for our little man as possible.

Surgery Update 1/13/11
As of 12:30, Ty is out of surgery safely and on his way back to the Pediatric intensive care unit. They had to remove quite a bit of scar tissue and they ended up taking out his appendix because once they removed the scar tissue the appendix didn't look great and they didn't want him to get appendicities. Other than that all is well and I will keep updating as I get them.
As of 11:15, Lauren just called...surgeons are closing now. Everything is still going well. Once the surgeons close, and make sure his ostomy is working well, then hem/onc doctor will go in and get the bone marrow aspirate. Then he will be on his way back to the picu. Thank you for your prayers. Debra
as of 10:25, everything is going well. Just sent down the first piece of bowel to the pathologist and they are waiting on the results to see where to place his ileostomy. It could take several samples to get the right level. Thank you. Debra
as of 9:06, surgeons just called L & E, Ty went to sleep with no problems, and they are starting now. Surgery should take approximately 4 hours. Ethan's Mom, Barbara, just landed in Chicago. Thank each & every one of you for your prayers and love. I will update when Ty is out of surgery. Debra
