The Fight- Update Morning 2/1

10:48 AM

Well, it is our first update of the day.

Parker was on life-support the whole night, and at at the same place he was yesterday- which long story short, he is getting worse. The doctors say that the main issue is that while he is the same, he should be beating back the infections, viruses and bacteria by now. For some reason his body is not responding and fighting back. They think they may know the reason why- one of the tests came back positive for a staph infection.

The running total: he has Influenza A, Pneumonia, four life-threatening lung infections, has been in Cardiac Arrest twice, and a HUGE staph infection.

The doctors say that they have never seen the body under attack like this before. We really need your prayers for Parker right now. We will have more definite answers tonight after they have performed more tests.

We are going to head up to the hospital in the afternoon.

Here is a picture of all of us at Provo Falls from two years ago for those that have not seen us for a while. Trust me, Parker and Sterling are a lot taller now, but we are pretty much the same.

At this time we can just put our trust in the Lord and pray that the doctors can do the best that they can.
