Here's a little bit from my sister. Prayers up.
Thank you everyone for the out pour of love and prayers. Please keep them coming. We are not out of the woods. I am a bit overwhelmed so bare with me when responding to everyone. As of now he has been life flighted to UC David to repair the aorta in his heart. He has small bleeding on the brain and has broken ribs and collapses lung. The surgery he was in was to stop the bleeding in his spleen. He is stable. but his blood pressure was up and down while inwas in the room with him. Please keep praying, he needs to come home to his family!


They are at UC Davis and we have no idea how long they will be there so let's help relieve a little stress. I know they aren't even thinking this far but they are going to need help!
