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.  

Thomas has been enjoying his first year of college at Christoper Newport University.  He is enjoying all aspects both academically and socially.  He is pledging Kappa Sigma and has a wonderful new family of pledge brothers.  He has been struggling to stay well since starting there this fall.  He arrived home on March 2nd to start Spring Break and quickly came down with  fever and sore throat.  It progressed all week until Thursday March 8 when he was having difficulty swallowing.  He had developed such enlarged tonsils that they were touching.  He was admitted into Virginia Hospital Center for observation and to be put on an IV for dehydration.  The swelling progressed to the point that he needed to be put on a breathing tube and be moved into ICU.  He has been there since Saturday.  He is sedated and not in any pain.  He had a set back yesterday but is calm now.  Please pray for him and all of us.  We appreciate your well wishes and messages left on this site.  I will read them to him daily.
