Hi, It's Jennifer

It's been almost a year since I have posted on my dad's blog! To be honest...I sort of forgot the sign in information...plus I have been a little busy with...moving...birthing a baby...things like that.

Anyhow. I thought I'd do a little bit of an update.

My dad is still waiting for a new liver!

He was also advised by his doctors to stop driving. The levels of ammonia on his brain were causing memory loss and really slow reflexes. (Like a drunk person with dementia)  He is on a medication for that and is doing better...but they told him they will reevaluate him in November and decide if he should start driving again.

Other than that. Things are pretty much the same. He goes in for regular visits and the doctors are keeping him as healthy as they can.

Also, We are looking for some good fundraising ideas. So...if you know of anything...email me @ bjflake00@yahoo.com

Thanks a bunch and hope you are all doing well!


  1. Jennifer,
    Thanks for the update. We often wonder how your dad is doing. He and your mom are in our thoughts always. Send them love from the Dudley's

  2. I would be up for another car wash. Maybe 2 or 3 locations. Also, maybe some kind of online service auction - I would be willing to donate my time cleaning, cooking, or babysitting (for example)
    We could also get a good fundraiser yard sale going. Maybe have a few kids run a lemonade stand near the yard sale. I have a juicer and im sure plenty of members have lemons to donate! (or Kool-Aid is cheap)

  3. How much more do we need? and is this for on-going treatment or so we can help him until he can drive again?? Either way I am all in!


let us know you've been here!
