Positive Thoughts Needed

Please keep Bryan and his family in your thoughts and prayers. His father is in ICU right now and the prognosis is not good. Vic is on a ventilator and has suspected brain damage. It is a frustrating situation because the doctors cannot seem to pinpoint exactly what the problem is at this point. We are in a holding pattern of sorts and it is a painful process, as I know that many of you are well aware from your own personal experiences. I am trying to do what I can to help Bryan and his mother get through this but it's hard and something that is outside of the realm of anything I have ever experienced. All we can do right now is hope for the best, even if "the best" is not what we necessarily want.

Edited on Friday, January 16--Bryan's dad passed away this afternoon. Thank you to everyone for the kind words and thoughts. Please keep them coming as we will continue you to need them during the days and weeks ahead.

I am so sorry, Jennifer and Bryan. I cannot begin to imagine what this must be like for you. (At least we knew what was going on with Mike.) I can tell you this, though: I still believe in miracles and miraculous recoveries. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
