Thank you everyone!  

Bryan had many visitors...pictured here and many that are not pictured...
thank you all for coming and hanging out with us to
keep our minds off the what was going on behind closed doors
(the waiting sometimes was unbearable, but you all made it better!)
thanks for supporting us, bringing us food and love,
thanks for all the offers of beds and houses.
Thank you to Mom and Dad Wilcken for the use of the Santa Fe while
while the Galaxee Quest was out of commission.
Thank you Ilene for the late night talks and the use of your bed.
For those of you there in mind only...
Thank you for your prayers, we are eternally grateful for those,
they worked because Bryan is still here with us...
Thank you also to the families in AZ who helped out with
the Wilcken and Stank-bott kids
so that Krissy, Jason and Laura could stay in San Diego as long as they did!
Thank you to Ralph, Molly, Lenny,
Janice and Rick for working overtime as parents
to all the kids, we know it wasn't easy!
We love you and appreciate you all!

Bad ole Al(dad) making Bryan laugh after surgery

Sleeping off the many drugs they give you after they rip your chest wide open! :)

Getting prepped for surgery,
they shaved him top to bottom (yes bottom as in booty areas)
even his legs in case they needed a vessel from them!

Posing before surgery!
