William's Illness

Hello friends and family!

I am sure nearly everyone who follows this blog already knows about our youngest son William's terrible illness. A few short weeks ago he was as healthy and happy as a baby could be. Then, suddenly, he somehow (we have no idea how) was infected by e. coli which led to Hemolytic-uremic Syndrome (read more here) which caused complete kidney failure. He then experienced a perforated bowel and while under surgery it was discovered that half of his lower intestine was necrotic, or dead, and had to be removed.

William is currently in critical but stable condition at Children's Hospital Los Angeles in Hollywood, CA.

You can follow his progess at, a blog my sister is updating on a nearly daily basis.

Please pray for William. If you do not pray, we appreciate your thoughts and support regardless.
