    Jarred is ultra responsive today. He is excited! He's pulling many thumbs up and squeezing mighty hard to answer our questions. He is by far the strongest most mightiest warrior I know. Please send your strength in prayer that it is Gods will we make it home safetly today. 🙏 the next update will be on the other side.

    Hello supports, donors, friends and family. New Zealand Air Ambulance Service has arrived! Just one more night here in Lautoka Hospital and were homeward bound. Our Intensive Care Nurse has has just been updated by the staff caring for Jarred here in Fiji, her team are in coordination mode and have put the best plan of attack together with the lowest risk. I will update tomorrow as plans do change. New Zealand High Commission here in Fiji are helping to organize the discharge process so that we do not meet any delay tomorrow in transporting Jarred from the hospital to the Airport. Jarred himself is doing his best. He is one tough dude! The strongest I've ever met. More updates to come but for now I want to thank you all for your ongoing support. it means the world to us over here in Fiji to know we have such a strong support group in Humanity. Thank you all. Bless you all. Keep the prayers coming if it is Gods will we will all be back home in Aotearoa tomorrow evening. 🙏

    I would like to give a very special thanks to the Marshall family here in lautoka/vuda, who have been the worlds best blessing. they have given shelter in their home for rest, they have transported me back and forth daily, fed me and prepared nutrionaly dense liquid food for jarred to sustain him. supported our brother and comforted him for many many hours a day, organized for support to stay with jarred throughout the night so we could rest knowing jarred had comfort and company. and now they have taken jarreds mother in also. they go above and beyond. we are so blessed. thank you Marshall's. God bless you🙏
