Steve’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Steve's status. Get started by reading the introduction to our website, My Story.

Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook.



On Friday, May 27 at 4:30am Steve had a seizure and went into cardiac arrest.  Lisa administered CPR and called 911.  EMS was able to restore Steve's pulse and transported him to UNC Hospitals.  In the ED he was put on an induced hypothermia protocol, which is used to improve neurological outcomes following cardiac events, and he was admitted to the Cardiac ICU.

We don't know why he had the seizure and arrest, as Steve has been completely healthy and has no vices.  This was bizarre and completely unexpected.

Amazing News

I have some amazing, wonderful news! I found out last night that we have been approved by BCBS for all of Steve's nursing care starting today! I really am in shock and it is still sinking in. This has been an extremely difficult 3 months, and I am SO, SO thankful to God for this incredible blessing! I am also SO thankful to all of our friends and family for their prayers, emotional and financial support during this time; we would not have been able to do it without you! I have been near the breaking point several times and you all have helped us through it. THANK YOU!

A note from Streams in the Desert: Jesus Christ is not my security against the storms of life, but He is my perfect security in the storms. He has never promised me an easy passage, only a safe landing.

Thanks be to God for his many blessings!! What perfect timing God has - Easter Brings this wonderful news for your family and our Lord is Risen from the tomb. Prayers of many have been answered, but those for you, Steve and your family, were powerful pleas for help coming from many people. GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL. Much love to you and your family.
