Dez getting better!

Hi team,
For all those that didn't know, my sister Nikki who was running the race with us is no longer able too. (We have, found a replacement.) My sisters daughter has Crohns disease. She went into surgery and ended up with a bad infection, and has been in the pediatric ICU for 7 days. There were numerous times that we thought she may not be coming home, but she has improved. Her vital signs have been stable for 24hrs. Her fever is normal and everything is looking up! The doctors were hoping to start weening her off the respirator today. Thank you all for your prayers and kind words. My other sisters and I are still excited for the race and can't wait to see those that we know and meet those that we don't.

Thank you for the update! I am thrilled that Desmon is getting better.

I'm also glad that we're going to continue with the race. I worried for a while about what it would do to you all.

Love you!

It's great to hear she is improving! We will continue to pray for her and your family. You are all so strong! We will be running this race for Dez, just like last time.
