It’s 5:57 am and I’m too exhausted to share what happened overnight in detail. My dad wrote an email to some friends that I asked him to copy me on so I could pass it on.

“Matthew woke us with the call that they didn’t think Bowen was going to make it.  Gail and I rushed to Ann Arbor to find Bowen on full life support.  

Matthew and Sarah had accepted that he was gone as they watched the nurse pump his little heart with his chest open for nearly a half hour until the surgeon arrived.  Matthew watched as the doctor performed surgery in Bowen’s chest.

He will remain on life support until his body can recover.  Would appreciate prayers.”
