Hi everyone! We feel terrible it has been this long since we have been able to post an update on Bryan. We have been having trouble with the website and it’s hard to believe this much time has passed. We are so sorry!
February 12th we celebrated Bryan’s 45th birthday! We are grateful and blessed to be able to share it with him. When asked how old he is he claims 35. We still can’t tell if he’s joking or not.  He has read all the birthday posts and received quite a few cards in the mail. He continues to be shocked and confused how all these strangers know who he is.
We wish there was something different to post, but Bry is pretty much doing the same as our last update. He works so hard physically and cognitively that he is exhausted most days. As his caregivers, Dave and Ann do their best every single day.
We recently shaved  Bryan’s head and it was shocking to see the damage to his skull. Seeing him stare at himself in the mirror was heartbreaking. Watching him touch the shunt that protrudes on the right side of his skull, the slightly sunken in left side and all the deep scars was heartbreaking. We tried to make light of it and told him that no one else would still be that good looking. Of course he agreed! We have mentioned it a million times, but his sense of humor is what keeps us all going.
We are coming up on 3 years since this happened and it’s hard to believe the support and prayers that Bryan still gets to this day. We cannot thank you guys enough for helping Bryan and us through all of this.
Love, the Stows
