I have been keeping tabs on this thread since yesterday trying to find the words to give you and your family some comfort. I have started posts and, just as quickly, erased them in futile attempts to say the "right" thing.

Ultimately, it has been brought home to me that nothing I can say now...or that I can ever say...will be the right thing.

I am so sorry. I hope that time and community help to someday lessen the pain that you and your family must be feeling.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

I have been following your posts concerning your son and truthfully I have not got words that can express my feelings for you and your family. I have prayers and believe in them that whatever happens You and your family will be strong .
There was an article in the news here about a sick child in Philly and how she was cured by injecting a mutated form of the HIV virus. The little girl is now a healthy child . I found a post of it on U tube . Don't know if it helps or not but anything is worth a try .

He is off the ventilator. So far he is breathing fine. He is waking up and talking to my parents. I got to see him smile again which was great. Hoping he will continue to improve enough to get him home.

Triple that !

You and your entire family and circle of friends are in my prayers. My brother had a similar incident in his family. As a bystander, it was an incredible display of faith and strength as he led his family through those events, both up's and down's. I am hoping you can find that strength as well as it was a sense and source of comfort to everyone..... including his little girl. Wishing Owen the best....Al

That is great news! Take each moment as just that. A moment with him. Don't put high expectations right now. Just baby steps. If you put to high expectations then it will be hard for you if there is even a minor set back which he will know by your actions. Having baby step expectations allows you to naturally show joy and happiness which in turn Owen will pick up on and feel & help him. Take every breath he takes every blink of his eyes every thing he does and cherish them in your heart. Thank God for everything he has done for Owen and allowed your family to cherish & hold. Your strength and faith will be tested. Believe and love Owen. We are pulling for you!

Got him moved back over to St Jude this afternoon. Will be trying to get him off the respirator. If he can breath on his own, hopefully we can get him home. Family is driving down right now in case things go down hill fast.

All he has been saying is that he wants to go home and see his dog.




This is breaking my heart.

Hang in there Owen!!!

I really don't know how to respond to what's going on in you and your son's life.
Please try and stay strong.
