The outpouring of care and concern from family, friends, and the community has been tremendous. Denise, his sisters (Kira and Breanne), and I have been humbled and very appreciative of this response from all.

New Years Day 2006, while coming in from patrol Evan's unit stopped their humvee to investigate a car. They had received intel that a bomber was going to hit the market place that day. When the cars driver was challenged by Sgt's Bishop & Collin, he blew himself up. Evan was in the gunner's position and took shrapnel to the left frontal/side of his brain, he was reported killed in Action, they lost Sgt. Bishop and Sgt. Collin was severly injured. God was with Evan, as he continues to be, it was not his time. A new journey begins for Evan, please join us in prayer for strength and guidance.
Evan had an AWESOMENESS GOOD TIME with WWP at the Harlem Globetrotters (like my wording) on Feb.23rd. He was all smiles, we got to meet new people, hang out & go to dinner with everybody. By the time we got to dinner he was pretty much wiped out! He was so tired from sitting in his chair all day he developed some toning & sore muscles. I thought after a day or two it would go away, Not sooooo much, by Thur. it had developed into a full blown Paroxysmal Autonomic Instability With Dystonia (PAID) episode or as I call it, Neurostorming.
On Saturday his temp would jump around, 102 then 104, so I thought a bed bath would cool him down, wrong! His temp jumped up to 106.9, no more baths for this guy. Needless to say it's been an ugly several days, I thought on Sunday everything returned to normal, wrong again! Last night it started all over and again today the crazy high temps We did go to the ER on Friday just to make sure there wasn't an underlying infection, everything was negative, so home we came. I figured we could do almost everything the hospital would & be much more comfortable doing it. But I do miss the cookies at the espresso stand :) And right now after only 2 hrs of sleep I'd give anything for a Doctor to come visit and give medication orders, I'm giving him everything I can and nothing seems to be working. So, to the big guy upstairs, we pray for intervention, please bring comfort to Evan, peaceful rest and healing so he may continue your good work, AMEN!
