The outpouring of prayers, love and support has been nothing short of amazing and has truly touched my heart.  I thought it might be best to create this Caring Bridge for Steve to keep everyone updated on his progress as much as I can.

Here is a summary of Steve's journey.  Steve has been in the Covid ICU at Nebraska Medicine (NM) since Saturday evening, April 4th, and is on a ventilator.  Steve has battled asthma his entire life and this horrific virus has attacked his lungs.  He is in critical but stable condition.  I can't be with him but once a day the nurses hold the phone to his ear and let me talk to him so he can hear my voice.  I tell him how very much I love him, how much his family and friends love him and encourage him to keep fighting because I know he can beat this.  They have him in a prone position (on his tummy) quite a bit which seems to help his lungs.  X-rays showed a slight improvement yesterday for which I am very thankful.  He's on extensive ventilator support and is in an induced comma. Steve's daughter Brittni sent up pictures of the family to hang in his room.

Thank you to everyone for your prayers and positive thoughts.  Please keep them coming.  I love you all.  #SteveStrong
