A Mother's Love

Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.
I Corinthians 13:4-7.

There is no greater love than that of a mother to her child. Today was a beautiful representation of how much Katy loves her son. Katy was granted a supervised visit with Devin today! She was able to visit her precious little boy for a short period time, which was filled with LOVE, cuddles, smiles and joy. Katy says that Devin is doing very well, continues to thrive and is continuing to be her miracle boy.

Katy was able to meet the foster caregiver and her husband and feels confident that they are taking wonderful care of her little boy. While this was such a blessing and joyous day, it still brings heartache and devastation to the Adams family. To have to get up and walk away from her little boy has caused more pain than most of us can ever imagine.


Please pray for Katy. Pray that the Lord will provide her the strength and courage she needs to get through this difficult time. Please pray for Devin's safety and his continued healing and for the amazing caregivers that are caring for him. And wholeheartedly pray for a quick resolve to this devastating situation and that Devin and Katy will be reunited soon!

Thank you all for your beautiful, heartfelt and comforting comments and words. We are truly blessed to be surrounded by such positive and encouraging people.

May you all be blessed this evening...

Good night Ü

There is no place like home!

Dearest Family, friends, beloved followers and prayer warriors,

It is bittersweet that we are writing this post to you today. We are overjoyed that Devin has been released to go home and doctors believe that he is well enough to leave the hospital and begin his long road to recovery, but we are brokenhearted that he doesn't get to begin his recovery with his Mommy.

On September 27, 2011, Devin celebrated his birthday with his Mommy Katy, Nannie (Robin who is Grandma) and other family members in the Adams family. They had the most amazing day filled with joy, happiness, love and celebration of their precious little boy. That evening, Robin (Devin's Grandma) took Devin to his father’s house and dropped off a perfectly healthy HAPPY little boy so his father could see him on his birthday. It wasn't long after, that Robin had been notified that Devin was being rushed to the E.R at Pomona Valley hospital, which at the time was being described as shortness of breath according to Devin's father’s family who were responsible for Devin at the time. At the hospital doctors came to the conclusion that he had sustained severe trauma to the back of his skull resulting in 2 fractures, brain swelling and bleeding of the brain. Tests later revealed that he suffered a stroke on the left side of his brain, leaving the right side of his body paralyzed. They removed the left side of his skull to allow for swelling and at the time they didn't know if he was going to survive.

29 days ago we didn't know what Devin's prognosis was going to be or if he would even survive this horrific abuse. He has become our miracle baby, has been a true testament to the power of prayer and God's willingness to prove that He has a purpose and a plan for all of us. Devin is currently able to move his left side completely, he is visually stimulated, can focus his attention and can recognize his loved ones. He pulls at our faces, primarily our noses, and tries to put his hands in anyone’s mouth! He is hearing voices and able to respond, he is able to sit up if someone supports his right side, has full mobility of his neck and is able to lift his hips. We were able to visit him on Sunday and he is a completely different child from 2 weeks ago even right down to BIG smile that fill our hearts.

During the past few weeks we have witnessed people giving their hearts to Lord, repenting their sins and Devin's story has truly affected thousands of people. We have received hundreds of comments, emails, texts and messages all of which have touched the Adams family in an immeasurable way. We are ALL so grateful for the support that you show and we ask that you continue to help encourage and lift up this little boy and the Adams family as this tragedy continues.

The investigation began, all parties involved were questioned, there were multiple meetings, forensic investigators and detectives began their investigation to determine who was responsible. Doctors have clearly stated that the injuries that Devin sustained were not accidental.

There were MANY sleepless nights, we have all had our opinions or suspicions and have had LOTS of questions, but in order to give the authorities respect for the situation we have all tried to be patient and give them time to unravel the truth.

Yesterday the Adams family's world came tumbling down, the custody hearing was scheduled and all parties were to be at court at 9:30. Katy and the Adams family walked in confident, with the support of their lawyer, and discussions from their CPS social worker. Katy met with her lawyer at the court house, and the unimaginable happened, the lawyer, advised her that according the paperwork from the authorities that she was still being named as a suspect and that Devin was going to be placed in protective custody and was going to foster care.

It wasn’t a minute later that the social workers, as well as other authorities were in Devin’s hospital room, removing him from a family friend and handing him over to foster care. Katy and the Adams family were not able to say goodbye to their baby boy. Katy is absolutely devastated, she doesn’t know where Devin is, who the person is that is supposed to be taking care of her little boy or if he is ok. She has not spent a night away from Devin and is completely broken hearted. She is the ONLY person that Devin should be with, she knows how to take care of him, she has been the constant strength for Devin, the reason he is thriving and doing so well and they belong together!

We are asking that you continue your prayers, please BEG God to help us find justice, to bring this baby back to his Mommy. Please pray for the woman that has custody of Devin, that she has gentle hands since he is SO fragile, he still does not have the bone flap back protecting his brain. Pray that she protect this little boy and love him as her own until he can be back in his mother’s loving arms. Please pray for Katy and the Adams family, pray for their strength, understanding, and peace and let them feel God’s love.

We also ask that you all continue to have FAITH through this horrible tragedy.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not upon your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6






All of these pictures are from Sunday evening, the night before Devin was taken into CPS custody... Remember this sweet face, picture his smiles and trust in the Lord that he will be reunited with his Mommy again!

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Romans 12:15-18

Weekend news...

Devin is continuing to show signs of improvement! He has giggled from stimulation and is smiling a lot more. He is responding to noises and voices and appears to be focusing more. He has spent some wonderful bonding time with his family and close friends over the past few days and Katy spent much of the day cuddling with her little boy. She is trying to console him as his teeth are causing him a lot of pain since he is still teething. Poor little guy has swollen gums and is not a happy camper. Although, he has found new entertainment and his favorite thing to do is rip off Katy's glasses! Anything to keep him occupied is fine by Mommy!

Doctors are still unable to provide any detailed information regarding what Devin's limitations are going to be. We still need all of your prayers and we are so appreciative of your encouragement and support during his difficult time! Please continue to prayer for Devin and his family!

Blessings!!

Mini update...

Devin received his helmet last night! This helmet will help to protect his head as he starts to move around more. It will also act as a shield for the left side of his head to protect his brain since they removed the bone to allow for the swelling. We are still waiting to find out when the bone flap surgery will take place, but will keep you posted. .

Devin has been moving his neck from side to side, can move the left side of his body, is starting to lift from his hips while on his back and his tummy. He is showing some signs of movement on the right side of his body, especially when he gets frustrated. Ü

Much love to you all and keep the prayers coming!

Thank you!!!

Pumpkin time!


Look at this cute little pumpkin...getting into the Halloween spirit!

Little update...

Just a special little text we got from Katy tonight.. Devin gave Nannie and Katy a BIG smile tonight!!

Not much of an update from the doctors except that Devin will be fitted for a protective helmet in the next few days.

Thank you for your prayers and blessings to you all!

Saturday!

Well, it's official... Devin is NOT connected to any tubes! Doctors removed the brain drain! He has been moved out of ICU, and not only did he move, but he was transferred 2 levels down. He is now in basic care!!

Devin has a room all to himself and Katy is busy making it feel like home. Pictures are on the walls, toys and books sit on the counter, so let the recovery begin!

We would like to praise all of you amazing people that have been supporting Devin, Katy and the families. We have received such beautiful words of encouragement, hugs, kisses and love through text, email, and Facebook and we are FOREVER grateful. It has been extremely overwhelming to see our world come together and support this precious boy. Thank you to those who have contributed to the donation fund to assist in Devin's recovery. Your offerings and generosity have been truly a blessing to this beautiful miracle boy!

"Look Mommy, no tubes!"

Night time snuggles with Mommy

Please continue your prayers as Devin's recovery is going to be long and challenging. We ask that you pray for Devin's continued healing. We pray that God will give him strength to overcome the obstacles that he will face and we ask that you would lift Katy up to the Lord as well. Please pray for her patience, strength and determination to help her little boy heal!

God Bless you ALL and have a wonderful night! Ü

Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:2-5

Most recent news!

Lots of exciting news today!

Doctors visited the little guy and Katy this morning and have advised that the MRI results were good and Devin's brain has stopped swelling! There is actually no swelling, just fluid build up. His inter cranial pressures are not going up which means that he gets the brain drain removed tomorrow.

He had the feeding tube removed this morning! He is eating wonderfully and getting lots of good nutrition from eating!

Doctors plan to move Devin out of the pediatric intensive care unit tomorrow once they have removed the drain. The bone flap replacement surgery should happen in the next few weeks.

Overall Katy says that Devin looks and is doing great!

God Bless!

Progress!

...and so it continues Ü

Devin is doing great. Katy said that yesterday was the BEST day yet. To start the day off, he woke up and smiled at her!! MELT OUR HEARTS! SO truly amazing and such a wonderful little blessing to her.

Last night she was able to feed him an actual dinner, gave him a bath and an 8 oz bottle and he was out for the night! She says that it was the most "normal" night thus far.


They are hopeful to remove the feeding tube today. We have not received any information regarding whether the MRI was completed, or if there are results yet.

The updates are minimal now that Devin is doing so well and Katy is busy tending to a little boy that requires her attention! We suppose if she is busy singing, reading, feeding, bathing and loving her little boy we will just patiently wait for those special updates! *smiles*

Thank you all for your continued support, love, and prayers! May you all have a blessed day and enjoy your loved ones.

Trust in the Lord and do good; so you will live in the land, and enjoy security. Take delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him. Psalm 37:3-5, 7a

Early morning update!

Good Morning...

The neurosurgeons were up bright and early this morning to visit Devin. They are going to be taking Devin for an MRI of his head and a whole body bone scan. We should have more information on the brain swelling and results once this is completed.

Devin's ICP (inter cranial pressure) are staying low which would suggest that they can remove the brain drain. Although, the hope is to remove the drain today they are stating that it doesn't eliminate the possibility that he will have a long term shunt. If and when they perform the shunt surgery it will be placed in the bone flap of the left side of his skull that was removed during his craniotomy. They will be replacing that bone section with the same bone that he originally had. They have harvested the bone and have been freezing it to keep it preserved. AMAZING!!

May you all enjoy this beautiful day and please continue your prayer warrior efforts for this precious miracle boy!!

Tuesday Update

9:30am...

Devin is eating like a champ! Katy was able to feed him a whole container of applesauce this morning while holding him in her arms!!

Devin had his I.V disconnected last night. The only things that he is hooked up to are the feeding tube (which should be removed in a few days if he continues to be able to eat) and the brain drain.

Once we receive notice on the CT scan results that is supposed to be completed today we will notify you all.

Have a blessed day!

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

It' a Good day!

Devin is doing so well! Doctors did a swallow study to examine if Devin has the ability to perform the task of swallowing and he passed! Katy was able to feed him a bite of yogurt and feed him from a bottle and his reflexes and the swallowing process was a success. They needed to make sure he wouldn't aspirate and that the swallowing function would be properly executed. He has been cleared to eat food! He will remain on the feeding tube just long enough to make sure he is getting the right amounts of nutrition and then they will be able to remove it! PRAISE the Lord!!!

Doctors have re clamped the brain drain as of a few hours ago and Devin's inter cranial pressure is staying low so he may not need the shunt after all. They will continue to monitor his pressures and swelling and will perform a CT scan tomorrow to evaluate his levels.

Thank you again for ALL of your prayers! We are so thankful to be blessed by such a comforting group of people.

God Bless Ü

Monday Evening...

Hello All,

Today Devin saw the physical, occupational and speech therapists. They worked on his arm and leg movements and provided Katy with some exercises to do with Devin to strengthen his little muscles. They evaluated his eyes and also started some exercises to increase his ability to use his eyes. The speech therapist attempted to give Devin a bottle and he refused it, they will continue to try to get him to feed from a bottle on a daily basis, in hopes that he will be able to be off the feeding tube.

Devin's original doctors came in to see him today. They hadn't seen him in a week and they are astounded at the progress that he is making. They also think that the shunt will be a necessary procedure and we will continue to keep you notified regarding that surgery.

They are completing another CT scan tonight and we will notify you of the results when we have them.

Katy says Devin has been agitated and grumpy. But, he is teething and they do not have him on any medicine besides children's Tylenol. She thinks he is uncomfortable and since he is unable to communicate those things with her he appears to be frustrated.

Devin is enjoying the sounds and images on the T.V. Ü We are unaware at what he can see or hear, but Katy says that he appears to pay attention to it and has the ability to stay focused in the direction that the T.V is within the room.

Overall a positively busy day and hopeful progress!


But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield. Psalm 5:11-12

Sunday, October 9, 2011

Sunday evening...

Devin had a good day today. He was awake for most of the day and looking like himself!

The speech therapist came by and is going to try to feed him via bottle tomorrow to see if he is able to eat. This will be one step closer to getting him off of the feeding tube. So please pray for his abilities to conquer this task!

He continues to remain in stable condition, vitals are strong and respiration's are good!

We encourage you to continue to pray for this little boy and his family. We know how significant the power of prayer is and it is SO important to keep up our prayer warrior efforts!

Good night!! Ü

Sunday update

Happy Sunday! Hope you all are enjoying this beautiful weekend!

Katy and Devin are doing well. Katy is getting to hold Devin quite a bit and is enjoying every minute. ;)

Not much is happening, the CT results showed that Devin's brain still has some swelling so doctors are continuing to monitor him. Devin's current vitals are good and his breathing remains stable.

Thank you again for your continued prayers and may you have a blessed day!!

Saturday October 8th

Good morning!

Devin had an exceptionally good night last night. The nurses were able to remove all of the glue from his hair and scalp, this is from all the EEG cords being attached. Katy said that he really enjoyed the little scrub he got. He was comforted by a fun new addition to his crib. The nurses brought him an aquarium noise maker that soothed him right to sleep.

The neurosurgeon came in and advised that they will be performing another CT scan today and this will determine whether Devin will need a shunt in his brain to constantly drain the fluid. It is likely that this procedure will be performed so his body will permanently be able to drain the fluid. The drain will be internal and a tube will flow to his stomach where the fluid will be emptied and excreted.

During the shunt procedure, doctors are planning to replace the bone flap that they removed during Devin's craniotomy. We will notify you as soon as surgery is scheduled and performed.

Please continue your amazing prayer efforts. Pray that the doctors have God guiding their hands during Devin's surgery and pray for Devin's continued strength to recover from this procedure.

Blessings!!

Pure LOVE!

Dearest family, friends, and fellow brothers and sisters in Christ,

Devin has had quite a restful day after yesterday and all that he went through with the removal of the ventilator. He rested much of the day, his vitals remain stable, and is continuing to breathe on his own. With all this going on we think that he is teething! Katy says he has been gnawing on her finger all day and she can see his heart rate on the monitor go down so maybe that gnawing is helping to relieve his teething pain. Katy spent much of her day with him and resting next to his bedside.

This evening we received the MOST amazing photo of Devin and Katy and it brought tears to our eyes. The moment that she had been waiting for has finally happened. She got to hold her precious little boy in her arms and cuddle and snuggle him. Ü


With such an amazing update this evening we would like to send everyone our heartfelt thanks on behalf of the Adams family. They are truly amazed at the overflowing love, support and prayers from everyone all over the world. To know that people are praying for their sweet boy all over the world is completely incredible. The power of prayer is amazing and we know that God has big plans for this little boy. His life has touched so many people and we are thankful for those that are emotionally invested in his story and well being.

We want to thank you so much for all of the incredible donations we have received thus far. For complete strangers to not only be praying but also financially supporting Katy and Devin is just beyond our comprehension. We cannot express how grateful we are to those of you who have remained devoted prayer warriors and to those who have also been able to financially assist Devin and Katy.

We understand and want to ease your concerns regarding the fund that has been established for Devin. This fund is the ONLY secure trust fund that has been legally established for Devin and these funds will be solely used for his individual care. Please be assured that we take this very seriously and completely understand your concerns. Should you feel compelled to donate to Devin, please know that we are ever so grateful for anything that you can bless this little boy with.

This blog has been established and is being maintained by close family friends to Katy and the Adams family. With regards to the information that is presented on this blog, ALL updates, photographs and details regarding Devin's condition are strictly coming from Katy. The information is being solely conveyed through Katy from the doctors and nurses. Please know that we try our hardest to update you all as quickly and as accurately as possible and we are honored that you are so invested in our blog and Devin's recovery!

Please continue to pray for Devin as he continues his fight, and for his Mommy Katy. She has stayed in constant prayer by his side this entire time. Sleeping in a chair beside him, thanking God and cherishing every single moment she has with her little boy. She is SO grateful for all your support and feels the love that you all have sent to her during this difficult time.

Thank you SO much from the bottom of our hearts and God Bless!

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." -Philippians 4:6-8

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Happy evening!

Praise the Lord... Devin has his ventilator OUT!! Doctors were able to successfully remove his ventilator and he is breathing on his own! His respiration's are good and his levels are normal!

He also had the EEG and one of the tubes in his brain removed. The brain drain is turned off, but still remains attached in case they need to turn it back on.

We got to visit the little guy tonight, held his little hands and whispered sweet words of encouragement to him. He looks good! His swelling has decreased and he continues to make progress daily.



Katy is truly AMAZING, she is SO strong, very inspiring and has the purest most genuine love for her little boy. They are meant for one another and beyond blessed to have each other. She radiates LOVE for her little boy and has not left his side! Before long, hopefully later this evening or tomorrow she will be able to wrap her arms around her precious son and hold him in her arms for the first time in a week. This is THEE moment that she has been waiting for.

Please continue to pray for this amazing woman, pray that she gets to hold her baby soon, pray for her strength and well being. Pray for Devin and his continued progress and for his recovery.

Thank you ALL so very much!
God Bless Ü

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Praise God!

Praise God for continued progress!

Devin is continuing to show signs of improvement!! Doctors have confirmed with evaluation and a chest xray that Devin will get his breathing tube (ventilator) removed later this evening or tomorrow. They also plan to remove the EEG tube and brain drain tomorrow as well. Which means that the only things that he will be "hooked" up to are a feeding tube and his I.V.

We will let you know as soon as we hear of these things being completed!

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
Psalm 28:7

God Bless you all and May you all have a goodnight!

Most recent...

Devin has his collar off! Neurosurgeons visited little Devin this morning and removed his collar. The are weaning him from the respirator more and his levels are looking good.

The doctors have also stated that they are going to remove the drain in his brain tomorrow after another CT scan.

He is continuing to move his body and has been making attempts to pull the respirator out on his own. He is a fighter!! Doctors have actually had to sedate him a little more so he won't pull it out!

Please continue to keep praying for Devin and his family. Please pray for him to continue to grow in strength and abilities. Please pray that the families continue to stay strong and support their precious boy.

Have a blessed day! Ü

Update!

Devin is doing well, he remains stable and his vitals are staying consistent. They planned on removing the collar but the neurosurgeons weren't able to make it to his room, hopefully they will be by soon.

Devin had his eyes open for most of the day. He was trying to pull on the EEG cords and to pull on the ventilator. Which is a good sign of controlled movements. As for the ventilator, doctors are slowly weaning him from the assistance and plan to have him off of it in a few days.

They have also turned the drain in his brain off and his ICP's (inter cranial pressures) are doing well.

We are so grateful for the progress that Devin continues to make. We understand that this will be a long road to recovery but are SO thankful for everyone's support, love and encouragement.

Katy and the family are continuing to stay in Loma Linda to support and be with Devin at all times. We ask if you are able to help with any donations or you feel compelled to serve this gracious and grateful family that you would "click" the donate button on the left sidebar and make your donations.

Blessings!

Tuesday October 4th Update

8:41am

MRI results showed that Devin can have the C collar removed today!! They are waiting for the neurosurgeon to come by as he is the only person authorized to remove the collar.

Devin is opening his eyes and moving around a lot. He is able to control his movements on the left side of his body. As for the right side of his body, they are noticing that although he is extremely weak, he is making attempts to move that side of his body as well!

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

God is GOOD evening!

Hello family and friends,

It is with much happiness that we can share this news with you this evening. Katy was overjoyed to share the news of this update and we could hear smiles over the phone :) She is continuing to be SO strong, keeping positive thoughts and on constant watch over her precious little boy.

Many things have begun to unfold today, doctors started with the MRI which we are still waiting for results (expected later this evening or tomorrow) to determine if they will be able to remove his cervical collar to alleviate the swelling within his body.

Overall the swelling is continuing to go down. Doctors are slowly decreasing Devin's sedation levels and as they continue to drop they are seeing more progress and his body is doing well with the adjustments.

Devin has raised his left arm today, is squeezing Katy's fingers and attempting to grasp at things that are near his left hand. He is showing signs of moving his eyebrows and attempting to open his eyes. Katy said that Devin's lips are starting to look "pink" again, and she feels like she looking at her little boy again!

video

Doctors have decreased the ventilator respiration's from 21 to 19 and Devin is showing positive signs of breathing by compensating on his own.

Doctors have completed an eye exam which showed some hemorrhaging in the outer eye area but it is already healing. They state that if the brain can recognize this then he should be able to see. Devin looked at Katy right in the eyes and he seemed to show signs of focusing. He is showing signs of responding to Katy's voice and during times when his heartbeat is slightly elevated she is able to talk to him and his heartbeat goes to a normal range.

We are all so grateful for ALL of your prayers and please continue to focus on the strength of our Lord Jesus Christ and His healing powers. We encourage you to continue the warrior prayer efforts and can't thank you enough.

Monday Update

11:15am Devin's vitals remain the same (Blood pressure, pulse, respiration's and pressure). The swelling in his body has gone down and doctors are planning on completing another MRI in the next few hours. The purpose for this MRI is to evaluate his neck to see if they can remove the cervical collar. If they are able to remove the cervical collar they are stating that this should help with the swelling throughout his body. In order for the MRI to be completed they had to remove the oxygen sensor in his brain, this procedure took two minutes and it was completed without any complications.

The EEG is still hooked up and doctors have said that there is no seizure activity.

Currently everyone is just waiting for the MRI and we will notify you with the results as soon as we can.

Thank you again for your constant prayers, encouragement, well wishes and kind words.

May you all have a blessed day!

Sunday, October 2, 2011

Sunday Morning Update

9:52am Just received a text from Katy stating that Devin's vitals are remaining stable. The nurses have stated that they do not believe the spastic movements on his left side are seizures. They have stated that if they were seizures than the EEG lines would be spiking and they are not. We won't have any final answers until the doctors examine the EEG results. Katy states that in no way do the EEG lines (waves) look normal. The right side of his brain is showing very little activity and left side is showing almost none. Please continue to pour out your hearts in prayers to this precious boy and his family.

"The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him." Exodus 15:2

Saturday, October 1, 2011

Update

Devin is currently in stable condition. Doctors are performing an EEG over the next 24 hours to monitor for any seizures.

Your continued prayers are needed and we thank you so much!

Blessings!

Saturday Morning October 1st

Good Morning All,


7:20am Over the past few hours Devin's blood pressure has been too low and his heart rate has been too high. He has begun shaking which would suggest the possibility that he is having seizures. Doctors are going to perform another EEG to determine if the shaking is a result from seizures or not. Please keep this precious boy in your constant prayers and please pray for Katy and the families. We will notify you the EEG results when we have the details.

God Bless you all!
