Sunday Evening

What a day. The emotional roller-coaster is exhausting. I guess I am one of those that hangs on to my guns and my religion, because without my religion, I don't know how I could possibly get through this.

Around mid-day we were at an all time low. As far as we knew, there was not much hope out there. You know that we aren't the kind of people that go down without a fight, and Vittoria is as stubborn as they come. Vittoria's Cardiologist finally got back to town and came here to get updated on things. She breathed a ray of hope into our life again. We are going to give that little angel more of a chance. We may have other options. Our family prayed together and we administered to Vittoria. We felt much more at peace with the future. We will not give up without a fight. She will not give up without a fight. We will know more in the morning. All the medical minds will meet and discuss things and then we will have more to go on.

For tonight, we will try to get some rest. We will work like it all depends on us, and pray like it all depends on the Lord. Thank you all for your love and support. Words cannot explain our gratitude to everyone who has written us, called us, visited us and the many who are praying for us. We love and appreciate all of you! Please continue to pray for our little princess. Also please pray for us as parents over the next few days that we can be inspired to do the right thing, make the right decisions, and understand our options. May God continue to bless us and may he bless your lives as you pray for ours. Goodnight....


  1. I don't know how much words can do, but I have been following your story since the 23rd and your words have moved me. Please know that your family is in our prayers. You keep on being stubborn, Vittoria! -Scott Frandsen

  6. Just getting the update...Please tell Vittoria that I have pulled as many strings as I can muster I am bringing home a personalized picture from Taylor Swift...I got ahold of her manager and Taylor knows about Vittoria and wants her to fight. As soon as I land back in SLC I will bring it to you. I am constantly thinking and praying for you!
