Our beautiful son Owen was born on August 26, 2011. He shares his birthday with his dad and his heart of both of us.

Unfortunately, on November 13th 2011 he suffered from a pediatric stroke that caused brain damage to his right
frontal lobe. After the stroke we were told that Owen may not be able to walk and would likely lose the majority of movement in his left arm and hand. Owen was working hard to prove them wrong. Attending physical and occupational therapy, Owen began using his hand to show the doctors that he is too stubborn to listen to them.

On January 27th, 2011… Owen went in for a EEG to see how he was progressing since being taken off one of the many dications he is on. During that time we found that Owen was having infantile spasms. Infantile spasms are an extremely dangerous kind of epilepsy that is often linked with developmental issues. Owen now has the tough job of going through a diet and steroid regiment in addition to all of the other work he was already doing. We are confident that Owen will once again beat the odds and show us how tough he his!

Surgery Change

I feel like this date has changed so much in the last couple of weeks leading up to this day.  Well I am happy to report the date hasn't changed but the time has.  Owen's new surgery time is 7:30 am. Man that's a little early.  Which means we will be checking into the hospital at 5:30 AM!  Now that's early. 
I have told many people if they would like to help us, we are just asking help with meals while we are in the hospital.  If you would like to help us out with that please let me know 2 days that you think you could help us with and I will put you in our calender!!!
Thank you everyone for your support!!!  Prayers that everything goes great!
