More on Evan

I wish I had some good news but I don't.

The news I posted in my last update is no longer the situation. We are just beyond ourselves with sadness and my heart breaks for my brother and Pam.

Sometime Wednesday or early Thursday morning Evan's brain started swelling. They found that he had bleeding in his brain and that the damage is extensive. What exactly this means we don't know yet but the neurologist was not optimistic in his prognosis. It is devastating news. Yesterday we thought there were some tough decisions that were going to have to be made. It was very long and terrible day for everyone.

However, the Intensivist (head doctor of the ICU) is a bit more optimistic and wants to give Evan's body more time to heal so that they can take him for a MRI and other more extensive tests before any such decisions are made. She gives us hope and that is what we are desperately clinging to right now.

I apologize if that sounds a bit vague but there are just some things I am unable/unwilling to say right now. I just can't begin to tell you how heavy our hearts are.

Thank you again for all your prayers. They right now are Pam's great comfort. So please please keep thinking of her and my brother and our sweet Evan.


  1. we continue to pray for evan, his parents and all your family.
