An addition to this morning's update
Here is the update that Jaret’s mom, Tina, added to his Caringbridge page on Wednesday:

We've had to come to the reality that Jaret is not getting better and there is just too much going on in his body for him to overcome. His little body is tired and can't fight anymore. The doctors have promised to make sure he is in no pain. He has been sedated for two weeks so we're not sure how much if anything he can feel now.I want to thank everyone for all of the messages of support. It means everything to us and I know that you will all be there for us when we will need it even more. Please keep Jaret in your prayers and hope that he can go peacefully and painlessly. A special prayer for his big brother would be welcomed as well. Jacob is nine and he doesn't understand. He tells me Jaret will come home. He believes doctors can do anything - if only that were true.
Please keep Jaret and his family in your prayers.
