Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. IF YOU GO TO THE GUESTBOOK AND LEAVE MESSAGES - WE WILL SHARE THESE WITH ALL THE FAMILY! Some of you know, Allan has not been feeling well for sometime. He has been struggling with many symptoms that were pointing to very little information. This last Saturday, we were blessed that one of our local emergency room doctors was able to determine a "substantial" change in a CT scan that had not been there 10 days prior. They transported him to OHSU to undergo more tests. At this point, they have found a mass and growths both outside and inside of his stomach. They have biopsied these areas and we are awaiting results. We hope to have results and more information tomorrow. THANK YOU from the entire Evald Clan for all of the concern, love, thoughts and prayers!! We are hoping for a LARGE blessing in a prognosis/process that will be just one more item to add to our long list of blessings. THANK YOU FOR CARING!
