On Valentine's Day weekend, my friend's son was struck with the Influenza, which immediately became double pneumonia, and the super-bug, MRSA, a horrible staphorus bacteria, took over his lungs. He's been fighting this for over a month and had a very promising week where he seemed to get better. But last night he took a turn for the worst.
Today they had to make the awful decision to take him off of life support or proceed with a 5% chance of life with a high probability of brain damage. They decided to take him off of support this evening with his extended family, 4 siblings and parents by his side. Griffon was a great kid, who loved sports, and skate boarding. Please keep his family and friends in your prayers. Its so difficult to grasp when it's someone so young. I wasnt prepared for this news after his progress this week. I'm stunned.


Thanks for reading...

Thought are with all of you.

Rest in the thought that he is now at peace.

It must be the most dreadful decision to make.
