Evan's first family picture Sept 12th, 2010. (9 days old)

Little preemie Evan a few hours after he was born. Five weeks early and a couple minutes without any oxygen prompted the Doctor's and nurses at Childrens Hospital to place him on a cooling blanket for four days. By dropping his core body tempature and carefully monitoring his vitals they effectively saved his brain from any harmful damage of a difficult C-section.

09/03/2010 Evan came into this world weighing in at 6 lbs 13 ozs

Everyone who has kids knows theirs child is the cutest little are some pics of ours after he came home on September 15th 2010.

Here is Baby Evan, recovering from abdominal surgery on 11/08/2010 to biopsey a nueroblastoma tumor that was found quite by accident and has turned our lives upside down with worry and concern for the health of our little boy.

This tumor, this cancerous neuroblastoma was literally feeding off of Evan every time he ate a meal. Evan was given IV fluids from the time he was admitted into the hospital not only to help him survive the proceedure, but also to bring his nutrient levels back into normal parameters. As we were assuming to be feeding our baby nutritious formulas, we were actually feeding the monster growing inside him.
His poor little body is all swollen from the IV's they have him on.....
