On Sunday April 21st, 2019 Ryan suffered a series of seizures while in Castlegar visiting family. He was airlifted to Kelowna (his and Kailee's homebase) where a CT showed he had an aneurysm/brain bleed. They then airlifted him to Vancouver General where he underwent one surgery Sunday night and another Monday morning. In total, there were three aneurysms.
As of Tuesday Ryan was stable, in the ICU, breathing on his own, however the next few weeks will be critical to his longer term prognosis.
Kailee is currently 33 weeks pregnant with her and Ryan's first child. Along with his parents, brothers (and spouses) and Kailee's mother and sister the support system for for Ryan has been traveling and staying with him the entire journey. The family is working on taking leaves to be able to support Ryan and Kailee and their baby in person.
The costs have added up quickly and will continue to add up as we focus on Ryan's recovery.
We will update as we can. All our love, the Thorne and Fergie families.
