In addition, they have found there to be too much cerebral fluid on TJ's brain... very, very serious issue. At this point the family was told it is a waiting game... meaning they will not try to relieve the pressure by draining off part of the fluid. Apparently the infant brain does most of its maturing from the 26th week of gestation on... His little brain got shorted by a good 7 1/2 weeks if you consider 38 weeks full gestation. If things do not improve the fluid on his brain can lead to brain damage and ultimately cerebral palsy. We would appreciate if you would continue to keep Jade, Tim & Timothy James "TJ" Ranagan in your prayers. Please pray for the Doctors to have full clarity of mind and to be drawn to the proper course of action.
We love you and appreciate all the support we have received to date. We know that we can count on our extended family in times like these.

This is just another testament to the power of prayer. We are so blessed to know that through our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ all things are made possible. Once again, thank you, thank you to all who prayed on our family's behalf. We love and appreciate each and everyone of you.
To the best of my knowledge, Little "TJ" will still be in the NICU for 30-45 days from his delivery... So Jade will still be spending most of her time at the hospital... she should hopefully be able to rest better at home tho.... I will let you know as we receive more information.

I loved this shot of our silly girls... They were so excited to see one another. I love how much Misty had sisters in all of her cousins. That brings my sweet sisters all so much closer.
Beautiful sisters, with momma peeking in the background.
Big brother, Hyrum, with the uber sexy return missionary... there is talk of a return missionary in AZ that has a thing for our beautiful return missionary... we'll see just how serious he is.
Tamra and her sweet girl. We were sure glad to be a part of her family home coming. We are all so proud of Miss Jeni.
Check out Wendy's Blog for more information and current TJ photos. Thank you everyone for your love and support.

However Miss Jade is seriously ill... after delivery her platelet count was at 61 with a very elevated liver enzyme, then her platelet count went to 65, then 85... we were joyfully thinking things were heading in the right direction, then yesterday Jade developed a fever, her blood pressure continued to rise, her platelets fell to 36 and her liver enzymes already dangerously high, quadrupled. Needless to say, she is seriously ill and in need of prayers on hers, TJ's and her family's behalf.
Our family has organized a family fast for tomorrow, Friday - Sept. 19th and would appreciate all prayers and fasting on their behalf.
Thank you in advance for all the kind words, thoughts and prayers that have been extended to our family.
All my love,
