Bringing Home the Browns: East Texas Family Sweeping the Nation with Inspiring Story [VIDEO]

Facebook

Sean and Heather Brown lived a typical East Texas love story. He was a backwoods boy who loved to hunt, and she was a blonde beauty. The two fell in love and got married, and seven years later found out they would be expanding their little family. But their story took a wrong turn just over a month ago, and they’re using Facebook to share it and inspire people everywhere.

On Sept. 15, at 34 weeks pregnant, while Sean Brown was fighting for our country in Afghanistan, Heather was having some headaches and back pains. So she went to the hospital to be cautious. There she starting having seizures, which doctors determined was due to bleeding in her brain. The baby, John Michael, was taken by emergency C-section and sent to a local NICU Unit. All the while Heather had slipped into a coma.

Sean got word of what was going on with his family back home, and immediately started the journey from Afghanistan to East Texas. It took him 72 hours with no contact to get updates on his wife and son. He arrived at Tyler Pounds Regional Airport and had a police escort to the hospital.

On Oct. 5, at just five pounds, baby John Michael Thomas Brown was brought home in good condition with his daddy by his side. Doctors are pleased with his development as he and his family are adjusting. Sean tries to divide his time at home with Baby John and time at the hospital with Heather.

It’s been over a month and Heather is still in a coma. On Tuesday, Baby John got to visit his mother for the first time, as you can see from the picture at left. While Heather has had little to no response or reaction, doctors say John is the best medicine Heather can have.

The family, who lives in Gladewater, gives updates on Heather and the baby, along with pictures on their Facebook page. Since the page was put up just over one month ago, it has gained more than 385,000 likes from around the world. People are being inspired by this families story and strength.
