August 28th Update

 Well I am sorry that I haven't blogged in awhile but there hasn't been much to blog about. Erin's condition remains the same. No good news, no bad news. Erin's school has started recently and she would be so upset to be missing all the kids coming back to school.
 Along with Erin's family and friends we are into a good routine with Erin's care. It is quite an undertaking and I am thankful that she has not had to go to a nursing home for care.

I put one of our dogs on Erin's lap the other night and he looked so content that I had to take a picture.


  1. i accidentally found this page when i googled the name of a girl i have thought of often over the past 19 years. erin crossen. she's the girl that made a year of my teenage life a little less painful. i didn't really "know" her, but i know she is a great person - one that left a lasting impression with me. and i will continue to think of her often, remembering how kind she was to me when i was the new girl. how she was always smiling and how she had such a great group of close friends. i think she would like to know she was already positively impacting lives when she was 15. pass it on for me. <3

    Dustyn - My heart breaks for you guys - seeing Erin's dog on her lap - for some reason - broke my heart - I have no special words to say - I wish there was someway to help you get through this - my prayers are with you both every day. Mimi

  3. Dustin - my family and I pray for y'all often. It was great to see you at the fishing rodeo and I think about you and Erin a lot. My Thoughts and prayers are always with you!!!

  4. You don't know me & I don't even know you & your wife. But I have been following your story and think what you are doing for your wife is wonderful! You have to do what makes you content because you have to live with your decisions. And I read something recently that is worth repeating: "We can not edit our feelings - we feel what we feel - not what we think we should feel... (but at least we feel)." Miracles can & do happen. Stay positive, but realistic. God will bless you.

  5. What a sweet picture. You guys are still in my thoughts and prayers Dustyn. God will see you through.

    Deus providebit.

  6. I love this picture. It is so sweet. We love you.
