The Story

Tonight the Burrough family is praying for a miracle. Shawn was diagnosed with the Flu and is now in the ICU with Renal Failure, Pneumonia, and per the doctor Shawn is in multi-system organ failure, he will be looked at today to see if he needs dialysis to jump start his kidneys, the infection in his blood and the pneumonia in his lungs have basically taken everything from him. While his numbers are improving, its taking everything they have to keep him alive..... I am asking if you can find it in your heart to reach out and make a donation to this family in need. Shawn is the sole provider for his family so his wife can stay home with the kids. He works 2 jobs to care for all of them. They are not just your average family. They have the hearts of gold and would take their shirts off their back with out a doubt to help someone in need. Even if you can not donate please share. We do not know what the future is holding for them right now. Rent is due, groceries, diapers, utilities, gas money, so if we can make this stressful time a little easier for them while Jennifer (mom) can be where she is needed at Shawn's side let's please rally together and help them.

I wanted to give the latest update on Shawn. There is also a Facebook page that has been created today where Jennifer will be posting daily updates, photos, and videos. I will try and post the link for anyone with Facebook. I will still post updates here as well. Please keep praying for Shawn’s speedy recovery as it is still a long road before he is 100% and can get back to being that amazing hard working friend, father, and husband. Below is Jennifer’s latest update:

“Shawn is off the ventilator and getting physical, occupational and speech therapy daily. He is doing extremely well crushing his goals. Every day he gets stronger and stronger. He has a long way to go but the doctors are saying they want to d/c him from the ICU sometime next week!! His kidneys are making more and more urine every day. He is only getting dialysis 3 times a week instead of daily. He is still cognitively impaired but that is because he is still coming off the sedation meds. He has ICU delirium from being down so long. The doctors say this is normal and will take a bit of time to overcome but he is getting better every day.”
