Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Our Journey that led us to a Caring Bridge site started on December 25, 2021. Brian started to not feel well in the afternoon. He started having high fevers that evening. On Monday, December 27th, I rushed Brian to the closest ER, Woodwinds, thinking he was having a stroke. They rushed him to CT and started doing all sorts of tests. He needed to be admitted. They could not find him a bed as he needed a neuro ICU bed so they had to admit him and house him in the ER for two days when they gave up on finding him a neuro ICU bed as the entire state had nothing available and Brian was 58th on the waiting list.
He is at Woodwinds and been diagnosed with a rare severe meningoencephilitis. The disease process is harsh and Brian has been in severe pain along with cognition deficits. He has a hard time communicating, finding words, remembering details about his life, and remembering what is happening moment to moment.
I appreciate all the love, support, prayers, and well wishes that have been surrounding us and helping us get through this difficult time.
I just know he is going to beat this because of how much he is loved by so many!
