As many of you know Brian was hospitalized a week ago with pneumonia caused by a serious bacterial infection. He is still intubated and sedated at Kadlec Medical Center in Richland, WA. Unfortunately, his course has been more complicated as he developed sepsis when he was hospitalized. He has been put on dialysis temporarily to support his kidneys. At this point it is a matter of waiting for the antibiotics to do their job and allowing Brian time to heal. His ICU Care Team is hoping to remove his breathing tube soon. This is a critical step in healing.
His parents (Mary and Ans) and his siblings (Tammy, Terri, Dave, Karen and Anita and their families), Desi and Leanne appreciate all the support and prayers.
Brian has touched many lives over the years especially from his days at Park Orchard, Our Lady of the Lake Parish and School, and the Wedgwood Community. Brian is a fighter and we know he wants to get back to his normal life soon so he can spend time golfing with Desi and all his wonderful golf buddies in Seattle and Desert Aire.
Brian has a long road to recovery but will be made easier by the support of his friends and family. Please feel free to write messages that can be shared with Brian. We will be providing updates on his progress.
