Update on Carlin's Health

Most of you know that Carlin has had major health issues for the past year. On this journey, she has been to countless doctors appointments, endured dozens of tests, and even spent time in the hospital. She hasn't been able to drive, so she and Evan have had to rearrange their lives to make accommodations. They just posted a video that includes a health update for curious fans. The two biggest questions on their minds right now are whether Carlin will be able to drive eventually and whether she will be able to have more children. Based on their video updates, Evan's attitude is one of complete selflessness and support for his wife, and Carlin has endured these health struggles with positivity, grace, and trust in God.
