Help Nolan get better

On July 12, 2013, Nolan was at Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, Texas with his Dad (Ryan), brother (Landen) and Ryan's aunt (Adrienne).

He was at the top of the water slide, and as he sat to go down, he slipped and hit his head. Immediately Ryan knew something was wrong. Nolan was airlifted to University Hospital in San Antonio.

Nolan was rushed into emergency surgery that night to remove part of his skull on the left side, due to fluid accumulation; the pressure had to be relieved. Since then he has been in the PICU. Doctors say it is too soon to know what effects this has had or will have on Nolan's neurological status. Positive signs, although little, have started to show; he has squeezed his Mama's hand, fluttered his eyes, and he attempted to move his right leg. He still has not shown any movement of his right arm other than a shoulder shrug. As with every step forward, there are two steps back. Nolan has an infection in his chest, and also suffered seizure-like activity on July 15.

As we all know the expenses of a hotel room, meals and gas start to add up (Ryan lives in Corpus Christi, which is 2 hours away, while Mallory lives in Georgia). Any help that you can give this family will be greatly appreciated. This is going to be a long and slow recovery for Nolan, and he needs all the support he can get, emotionally and financially. Keep the prayers coming!
