Janine & Kurt Davidheiser / Tuesday, August 28 2007 01:39 PM

This is encouraging news and so happy to hear that Ally's weaning off the vent. The school for Ashley sounds great and she will enjoy it and make some new friends. Ally won't hate you or Shane. She's probably withdrawn from all the meds and all that she's gone through w/the surgeries. she's such a fighter. hang in there Jill and don't forget to take care of yourself too.

The Bollingers / Tuesday, August 28 2007 11:30 AM

So glad to hear that Ally is having good days. Keep up the great work Ally. Ally won't hate you, you have given her a chance at life and she is a fighter. It may seem like it now that she is withdrawn but as she grows older, she will be more than thankful for all that you have done for her. I am sure Ashley will love the new school and meet new friends. Everything will work out. Our prayers continue for you all. God Bless.

Pastor & Kathy Pearson / Tuesday, August 28 2007 10:26 AM

You and your sweet family are on my mind. I'm checking on you and Ally daily, and hoping your days get brighter. You have friends that you don't even know, hoping and praying for Ally to pull through this. She's a fighter, and you are a pillar of strength. You're my Mother of the year (century). Ally knows you're there loving her no end. Someday soon you'll be able to rest knowing your sweet girls are safe. I'm wishing that it will be in the VERY near future. Keep all your positive energy for Ally, it's working. It's healing time. She's doing it. Sincerely, Karen Dougherty and family.

Johanna / Wednesday, August 22 2007 02:55 PM

With all you and Ally have gone through, it's sometimes hard to imagine more valleys and hills. But you and Ally and your family are amazing people, and you have many, many people supporting and praying for all of you. Although it often doesn't make much sense, without both the good and the challenging it's hard to really appreciate the good when it's there. It can be hard to appreciate this when the going gets tough. I know you will take a deep breath, reorient, and with prayer and support make it through this time as you have with the multiple times before. As always, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Barbara / Wednesday, August 22 2007 02:32 PM

ALL our prayers are with your family allways,GOD BLESS

Heidi / Wednesday, August 22 2007 12:52 PM

Dear Shane and Jill, as a mother I can only imagine the pain you and your family are going though. Just by the tone in your letter I can hear the hope you have for your daughter. I know she get's her fighting spirit from you and her dad which is a wonderful thing. You are strong and your family is strong. The church and I have been praying for little Ally. Know that you are not alone, many people are with you and are there to support you and to cry on, please do not take this weight on all by yourself. Please remember, I know it might not seem like it now but God is with your family and holding Ally each and every day. You are in my thoughts. Yours in Christ, Heidi Snyder

Such small words Without much meaning To say to someone’s family Who made the ultimate sacrifice? We are truly sorry for your family’s loss But he or she has made their final journey home And before you let them fly You in fact Gave them life See your gift Your precise gift Has given our daughter, sister, granddaughter A second chance at life A piece of your loved one still shines Still lives And still exists Your family No matter how far away Or how close Is part of my family Please have some peace in knowing that our families are connected Even if by small organs Your family is now And always will be a part of our lives and prayers Thank you!! 8/8/07

Today was another good day ...


Tina Eidle / Friday, August 3 2007 11:09 PM

Hi Jill and Shane, My prayers have been with Ally and your family. I am happy to hear all your positive news. I was reading about your apartment hunt. A friend of mine used a program called Host for Homes while her granddaughter was at CHOP. Private families around large hospitals open their homes to families of sick children. There is no charge and she thinks it is offered through out PA. Her original contact was Marilyn Lakin from Boscov's East at 610-779-2000. She placed her in contact with a Mike from the Boscov family. She thinks CHOP may have information on this program as well. I'm sorry I do not have more information on the program, but hopefully someone will be able to get you more information. All My Prayers and Best Wishes, Tina

winky bergdoll / Friday, August 3 2007 09:57 PM

Thank you, Lord for further answered prayer. May Ally continue to improve daily. Our prayers are with you all!

Alissa / Friday, August 3 2007 03:47 PM

I'm glad to hear that things are going well and that you are pleasantly bored. We're thinking of you.

stephanie / Friday, August 3 2007 01:14 PM

Glad she is doing well. Soon she will be up and moving around... you are always in our thoughts and prayers. Good luck finding a place to stay. We know how hard that is and how expensive finding a home away from home

Pastor & Kathy / Friday, August 3 2007 12:35 PM

Jill & Shane, Thanks for the great news on Ally. We know that this is a very long journey and you are only at the beginning stages. We give thanks for every good day. A little prayer of thanks:

Sandy Maicher / Friday, August 3 2007 12:17 PM

Margaret Ann / Friday, August 3 2007 03:16 AM

I am thankful that things are going well. One day at a time and one step forward everyday is an accomplishment. It's hard not being the ones to take care of Ally but it sounds like she is in great hands. Take care of each other and we'll continue to pray and look forward to Ally's homecoming. Love, Margaret Ann (duPont nurse)

Barbara / Friday, August 3 2007 03:09 AM

Kristin at RMH / Thursday, August 2 2007 01:27 PM

I hope Ally continues to improve. It must be a help to have the grandparents there for Ashley. Two great things to do with kids is the Pittsburgh Children's Museum (which may be where Ashley went earlier this week) and the Pittsburgh Zoo. At least she likes swimming in the hotel pool. I continue to keep your family in my thoughts.

We are soooooo happy to hear that thing went well. The family is in our prayers and we are doing the pee-pee dance every chance we get.

Glad to hear the output is increasing. I'll continue to pray for it to increase even more. As a descendant of American Indians I never heard of the Pee Pee dance, but I'll give it a try! God is with you!!

Win / Wednesday, August 1 2007 06:28 PM

Shane, Try looking into Family House. It's similar to the Ronald McDonald House. My friend lives in Pittsburgh - he's looking into places to stay and other ways to save on expenses. His wife is also a doctor and is looking into this well. I'll have more information later . . .

Ally had a better end ...


Lynda Horn / Thursday, March 13 2008 06:15 PM

Hello, Jill, Shane, Ashley, and Ally. You probably do not remember me. It is Lynda Horn Your long ago night nurse before leaving PSA. I can't believe how grown up the girls are. But I have seen the change in all the pic's posted on the site. I do keep up with you guy's but it would be much nicer if I could see Ally again face to face. I love that she is home and doing alot better. Jill you have a new hair style. WOW! it looks great. Well I just wanted to say hello. I hope Ally remembers me, because I will never ever forget her. She is and will always be one of the babies dearest to my heart. I miss her so. Wishing your family nothing but the best, my prayers are with you and always will be. Lynda Horn

What can we do for all of you beside the prayers? Will you need help moving in somewhere or??? You must let us know what we can do. PLEASE give us a list of gift certificates to food places or things you will need. Boyertown will miss all of you so much. Love to all.

Karlene & Steve Novotny / Wednesday, August 1 2007 02:34 PM

Our prayers are with you and Ally. God has given you a gift and we truly understand the magnitude of the procedure. You see I (Karlene) am being evaluated for a intestine and colon transplant and possible liver as well. I will always keep Ally in my thoughts and prayers and look forward to updates and pictures. God's peace

Pastor Grill / Wednesday, August 1 2007 01:29 PM

Hi! Sister Millicent just contacted me and asked me to come to visit you. I would be honored to do that but need the access code. If you are willing to call St Andrew Lutheran Church 412 682-3342 and give me your cell phone number I would like to ask you for that code. (Please leave a message; I am out of the office most of the day). I hope to be visiting the hospitals late this afternoon and would like to have the opportunity to see you.

Cheryl Nagle / Wednesday, August 1 2007 11:12 AM

Thru the last 3 years my husband & I and our church have watched and waited with the Heintz family. Now every morning I rush thru getting ready for work so I can look on this site for a progress report. Thank you for sharing with all of us. I am still a firm believer that our God has a plan thru all of this. I can see His hand everywhere uplifting when needed, calming when needed, loving always. Let your faith in Him grow through all of this. Keep Him always up front and close to you and God will see you through

Sandra DiCesare / Wednesday, August 1 2007 02:43 AM

We are all doing the pee-pee dance here in New Jersey, we will do any kind of dance if it helps Ally recover. Thinking and praying for all of you. Love and hugs sent to you all!!!!!
