Here’s the latest update on the Ewart Family. In the early morning on Tuesday, December 20th, fire destroyed their Valencia home. Six family members were in the house at the time, three were seriously injured and sent to the Grossman Burn Center. Since the fire, our Valley has jumped in to assist. This is the latest update courtesy of neighbors, Josy and Steve Block.
Today (Tuesday) MICHAEL had a doctor‘s visit back at the Grossman Center. This was a routine visit and everything went well. He will continue to return to the Burn Center a few times a week for ongoing check-ups.
DAVID - We understand that he is doing much better. Hugh and Essie got to visit with him today. He is getting stronger and stronger every day…please continue sending prayers his way.
* It is expected that when David can begin feeding himself, he will be released shortly after. Upon his release (or just prior to), he will have similar needs that Michael had, so…to avoid a last-minute "rush" to get so many items at the last minute, we will ask for the following items by, say, the end of the week. Please send an email if you are able to pick up something on the list, and wait for a confirmation to make sure that no one else is buying that item. (Thank you). Also, if you can wash the items in Dreft Detergent prior to delivery, that would be great, if not, we are happy to launder them upon delivery.
