Update on Briggs from my brother Ryan.

Docs are now concerned that Briggs is at a stand still and not making progress. They are concerned with his weight and have increased his calories intake via the feeding tube, but he is still not gaining weight. On the contrary, he is loosing weight. He will be watched very closely over the next two to three days. If he does not show signs of improvement, he will have another surgery in the next 1-2 weeks. This is the open heart bypass surgery that the Doctors wanted to wait to do until he was 6-8 months old. Unfortunately, we may not have this option. The risks are greater now (especially fresh off the first surgery) then they would be down the road. Keep the prayers coming as he needs them more than ever right now.
