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.

Latest Journal Update

dealing with worries

 We all have worries, some days worse than others. For me, I know that worrying about the future esp with all the unexpected trouble we have had recently bogs me down throughout the day. I have been praying and praying for this burden to be lifted. Someone forwarded this to me today and it is perfect:

Luke 12:25-30

12:25 And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?
12:26 If then you are not able to do so small a thing as that, why do you worry about the rest?
12:27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these.
12:28 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you--you of little faith!
12:29 And do not keep striving for what you are to eat and what you are to drink, and do not keep worrying.
12:30 For it is the nations of the world that strive after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them.

Lisa, I can only imagine how difficult it is to go on day after day, with all you are dealing with, but as this passage says "worrying" doesn't help anything. GOD is a loving God who can handle all the troubles we give to him. Just pause and feel his loving arms holding you, Steve, and the girls. Love and hugs to you.
