The neuro-surgeons met with me and Nancy a few minutes ago. They are recommending that Garren go back into surgery. They are concerned about the swelling. The surgery will remove another piece of his skull around the affected area. This will give the brain a little more room to expand, relieving some of the pressure.

The surgery will be sometime around noon.

I asked the surgeon if he had kids. He said yes. I asked him if he would do this if it was his son. He said absolutely.

Thank you for your prayers.

I could never express how deeply affected our family has been since we heard about Garren.

Geoffrey, we love you all and are prying earnestly for strength and peace for your family, wisdom for all involved in Garren's care, a sense of normalcy for Kelsey and Kara and overwhelming support for you all.

You all are very close to our hearts as we continually lift you up to the one who knows all and controls all!

Love,
The Via Family

To Garren and his family:

You are all in my thoughts and prayers while you work through this most difficult time. I admire your strength and faith. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you here at school.

I can't imagine the emotions you and your family must be going through. For this to happen to anyones child is so scary. It seems we all take life forgranted until times like these. Garren and your family are and will continue to be in our prayers.

While in the car this morning, praying for Garren, this song came on & I thought "how true & perfect"

Our family will continue to lift Garren up in prayer. We also pray for you & the girls, asking for faith & peace in these dark hours.

Geoffrey and family,

I can stay remember my first time at Southbrook and seeing "the blonde family". From that day to today, your family has stood out as an example of God's Light in our world. It is our family's prayer that God's Light will shine down on you, Nancy, Kara and Kelsey in this time. But most importantly, we pray that His Light will especially shine bright on Garren and that His Light will illuminate the way for doctors to perform all the right maneuvers to bring about Garren's complete healing.

You are close to our hearts in prayer!

Blessings!

The Peck Family
