Just to catch you up - Garren had what is called an AVM. This mass of "tangle blood vessels" at the base of his brain, which is something that he was probably born with, ruptured in PE class yesterday.
The surgeons at CMC Main in Charlotte removed the AVM and now Garren is in PICU, recovering. We have not been able to speak to Garren. He is still unconscious, and they have him on medications to keep him sedated. These next few days will be all about allowing the brain to recover from the trauma that occurred.
At this point we know nothing about what will happen next. The doctors will watch him, they are doing and have done everything they can.
I would ask you to pray for Garren's recovery. Pray that he will heal, and that he will get back to normal.
If you want to visit, we welcome that. I or Nancy will gladly meet with you in the waiting area. Many have asked what you can do to help. Right now, we just need to get through the next couple of days. Then we will have a better idea of what's next. We will get a game plan together, and we will welcome your many offers to help.
Thank you again for your love and support.
Geoffrey, Nancy, Kara and Kelsey
