Here's what we know.

On Sunday, October 12, Geoff was found unresponsive at his home in Mountain View. Due to prolonged oxygen deprivation, he arrived at El Camino Hospital with multiple organ failure. Since his arrival, he has remained in a coma and relies on life support. Over the last few days, Geoff's lungs, liver and kidneys have been improving steadily. However, the lack of oxygen resulted in swelling and potential brain damage. Yesterday's MRI revealed that the swelling is still present, and the most significant areas of concern reside within the white matter related to motor function.

The blood work from this morning confirmed that his vital signs are getting stronger and his lungs, liver and kidneys are on the right track. We are currently awaiting the results of his latest CT scan.

Keep sending positive energy, thoughts and prayers.
We believe in miracles!

Dear Geoff,

I am so sorry to hear about your very difficult current challenge. Words can not adequately convey my mixed feelings of sadness, sympathy for you and your dear parents and yet confidence in your recovery. We don't know each other very well but through your parents I feel I am close to you. Our family will pray for your quick recovery and great patience for your parents. I'd like to offer the following healing prayer to be recited at your bedside:
O God, my God! I beg of Thee by the ocean of Thy healing, and by the splendors of the Daystar of Thy grace, and by Thy Name through which Thou didst subdue Thy servants, and by the pervasive power of Thy most exalted Word and the potency of Thy most august Pen, and by Thy mercy that hath preceded the creation of all who are in heaven and on earth, to purge me with the waters of Thy bounty from every affliction and disorder, and from all weakness and feebleness.

Thou seest, O my Lord, Thy suppliant waiting at the door of Thy bounty, and him who hath set his hopes on Thee clinging to the cord of Thy generosity. Deny him not, I beseech Thee, the things he seeketh from the ocean of Thy grace and the Daystar of Thy loving-kindness.

Powerful art Thou to do what pleaseth Thee. There is none other God save Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.
