Evan is a patient in the Intermediate Care at Iowa City. He has been upgraded from ICU. Ecan has been diagnosed with Bickerstaff brainstem encephalitis (meaning inflammation not infection in this context), an autoimmune disease and a variant of Guillian Barre Syndrome (GBS) that most likely developed as a result of an intestinal virus he had on Christmas Day.
