Marine Sergeant DJ Emery - Update

For those of you not familiar with Marine Sergeant DJ Emery, below are the links to his story.  Be sure to read the first one.

New update on DJ is posted after the Jump (you won't want to miss this one).

Update from DJ's mother, Connie:


Good morning everyone. DJ is doing pretty good. He is off all his IVs again and eating real food. Hopefully we are on the right track again. We are still not sure when his surgery is going to be on his arm. I have a special request from all our supporters out there. When you are praying for us if you could say a prayer for my sister (the Doran family). My nephew was killed in a car accident yesterday morning. You all helped DJ,Leslie and myself with prayers so I thought it would be nice for them also.I will be away for a few days to attend the funeral. I will update as much as I can. Talk to you all later. Keep up the good work everyone!
God bless Connie
