New Year Update

Happy new year from Christopher and I. As I write this update, Chris and I are amazed it is February already. In just a few short months, we will be facing the second anniversary of the shooting at FedEx where my husband Chris (Allied Barton Security Guard) was shot in the abdomen by a FedEx employee at point blank range with a shotgun. Now, almost two years later, Chris still fights for his most basic needs.

So many of you have asked for an update, and I owe you one… although I wish I had better news to share. Christopher's wounds have healed significantly after the GI leak that happened last November after his 50th surgery, but they haven't healed enough to seal up. He's physically in a lot of pain, and mentally this is a lot on both of us.

Without going into graphic detail, the most important thing is this; we will know in the next 10-15 days whether or not Chris will be sent home to wait for another surgery in the spring. He has endured bags on his belly and acid on his skin for almost two years. Our precious family, along with the Emory Team, is desperate to see Chris healed without more surgery.

We are asking God for this miracle. Would you ask Him with us, in Jesus name? I will let you know more as we find out.

Thank you for caring about my family. Thank you for following Christopher's journey. - Jamie Lynn
