Update on my dad.. Last night was crazy. I went to the hospital around midnight at random just to visit with him. Most late nights he's wide awake.

Walked into his room and there was 15 nurses/doctors in his room. My dad was having uncontrollable seizures. This went on for atleast 45 minutes.

Our plan was to start 'Comfort Care' today but it had to start on the fly late last night because he was so distressed. What I saw last night when I walked in, the condition he was in, drenched in sweat and seizing, something that will be burned into my mind forever.

Things are about to get really crazy but my promise still stands. I likely won't ever get to communicate with my father again now that he is heavily sedated for comfort. I'm sure he can hear my words, though. I promised him I would fulfill what I set out to do in his name, to become the first to bodyweight lunge The Golden Gate Bridge down AND back 3.4 miles.

I've debated back and forth of whether I should go or not in such a fluid time. Everything aside, it all comes back to 'what would my dad want me to do?' I know that answer exactly without hesitation. He'd tell me 'boy go lunge that damn bridge!' #CoyUp

#SquatEveryday day 822.

315 high bar pause.

Have my biggest lunge session tomorrow so I layed up today in preparation.

The toughest, strongest man I know. My hero

We have an incredibly difficult decision to make in the morning.

Please pray for our strength and courage. God take the wheel

#CoyUp

Last two days has been rough. My dad was moved from Valir Rehabilitation Hospital back to OU Medical today.

The doctor at Valir told us my dad has only days left, so hospice options are now on the table. Makes me sick to even think about or type it. We will continue to fight and keep hope, that will not waiver unless my dad experiences major discomfort or pain. So far that is not a case, praise God.

29 days from today on September 9th I plan on becoming the first in history to bodyweight lunge The Golden Gate Bridge, down AND back, 3.4 miles in honor of my father and his battle against stage IV brain cancer.

A Tulsa film director and his crew is going to fly out with us to film a documentary over Mount Scott, The Golden Gate Bridge, and most importantly my dad and I's relationship. The documentary will be called "Coy Up." God continues to move mountains by bringing awareness to my dad's battle. This is an incredible opportunity to ensure my dad's legacy out lives all of us potentially. The documentary will be shown sometime around Christmas 2017 in a theatre (TBA) in Oklahoma City. Admission proceeds will go to my dad's fund.

Please continue to pray for my dad and our family for the strength that will be needed in the coming days or weeks. We appreciate all of you.

As always, it's #CoyUp forever.

I've been following @poweraesthetics_by_cw for a couple years now. He's indirectly taught me so much about the fitness industry. The power of social media is a strange thing. I lost my dad last month and I wasn't ready for him to leave this world. When I heard about Cody's father, Coy, I knew that I had to help. Even if it was just buying a shirt, I know it all adds up. In a bizarre way, it gave me some healing as I struggled with the death of my dad. Today is Coy's birthday and I wish him the happiest of days. #coyup #lungingagainstcancer #lxc #fuckcancer #cancersucks

Update on my dad:

They are confident that the shunt they surgically placed ~2 months ago as failed. This has caused fluid (swelling) on the brain.

He's currently heavily sedated with a breathing tube. They are currently trying to get fluid off of his brain via a drain they opened up just above his forehead on Saturday night. Once they get the fluid off, then they can determine what caused the shunt to fail.

Shunt could have failed because of tumor progression(worst case scenario), an abscess, or pseudo progression. The latter is what we are hoping for. We'll know more in the coming days.

Please continue to pray and/or keep my dad in your good thoughts, we have a long road ahead and the future is uncertain. Thank you all for the love and support, will do my best to keep you updated as things change.

#SquatEveryday day 820.

Came in brutally sore from an hour of lunging in a 40lb vest on Monday.

Did 23 minutes of lunging in a 40lb vest today to break up the soreness.

Movement is the medicine

#SquatEveryday day 819.

Trained up to a low bar single with 425, back off sets some speed work.

Felt good despite an hour of lunging in a 40lb vest yesterday and being sore.

How you feel is a lie. Movement is the medicine.

For those interested in how I'm training for September 9th at The Golden Gate Bridge.. Well, alot of lunging and squatting everyday, today marked day 819 of squatting in a row.

I'm training my body a bit differently than I did for Mount Scott. The luxury of Mount Scott being in Oklahoma allowed for me to go there every weekend before the event and train different parts of the mountain. I haven't been back to Mount Scott since June 18th when I lunged 3 miles up the mountain. I just can't get myself to go back yet. So much energy and emotion was spent that day. That mountain will forever hold a special place in my heart when God used me as an instrument in my dad's battle.

For The Golden Gate, I've been lunging while wearing a 40lb weighted vest. Today I lunged the furthest in the 40lb vest than I have ever before. I lunged for one hour today. Hoping this prepares my mind and body for the daunting task ahead on September 9th.

There is no secret recipe for lunging extreme long distances because, well, very few, if any have ventured the human body into those waters. But I'm willing to fail and lay it all on the line for a special man I love known as my dad. I'd lunge to hell, fight the devil, and back if I knew I could save him.

Stay tuned for September 9th, LIVE on facebook from The Golden Gate. Hoping to become the first human to bodyweight lunge down AND back 3.4 miles in honor of my dad's fight against GBM. Please help me spread the word!

#SquatEveryday day 818 after 1 hour of bodyweight lunges wearing a 40lb vest.

Double with 275

#CoyUp

My one wish from God:

Keep my dad here to see September 9th, when I attempt to become the first to bodyweight lunge The Golden Gate Bridge down AND back 3.4 miles.

It's 27 days from now. If we are granted 27 days it will be a miracle. It's Godspeed from this point forward.

What's meant to be will happen, I understand that. I just selfishly want one more shot to make him the proudest father on earth. I owe him that for what he has meant to me.

In everything my dad ever did, he always did it BIG. The Golden Gate is one of the seven wonders of the modern world, that's doing it BIG. It's exactly what he would do.

I might never fully understand why God called me to lunge 3 miles up Mount Scott, or attempt 3.4 miles across the Bridge.. but that's what God placed on my heart. I try to not ask questions, instead just act. I'd go to hell and back for my dad, that's all I know.

Stay tuned for September 9th. It will be on facebook LIVE through my account (Cody Don Wilburn). Please share our story that day with the world! My dad is too great of a man not to share with everyone! We want to tell the world about our hero and the battle he has endured while bringing awareness and donations towards our fight against brain cancer.

Thank you all for the love you've poured out on our family in this difficult journey. We can't respond to everyone, there's just so many.. but that's a good thing. The love overflows and when dealing with this nasty disease, the only medicine is an abundance of love.

Since it's just before the season, we had to take a picture! I had him wear my hat.

My dad had season tickets to OU home games for many years. Some of the greatest memories of my life were with my dad watching the Sooners kick butt on Saturdays. We went to so many games I can't even remember them all.

The best one was in 2000 when #2 OU beat #1 Nebraska in Norman. OU went on to win the National Title that year as my dad and I watched it from his house! When I think OU football, I always think of my dad.

Update on my dad.. Today we are taking out the ventilator and signing a DNR. Tough decisions but it's what has to be done. We asked him, he nodded yes, that's what my dad wants.

Please continue to pray for my father. Today is the beginning of the end of this long battle. I never thought the final chapter would come, I wish the story could go on forever.

But I will say, it's only fitting my dad showed the peace sign.. telling cancer to out.

Cancer can't touch our love.. it can't touch our bond.. it can't touch our memories.. and it can't stop our Sooners from takin' names on Saturdays in the fall. Those things last forever.

I used to squat once or twice a week, then I began following an amazing young man on social media that took a challenge to squat everyday, now I squat as often as my schedule allows, I thank him for the motivation.
Cody Don Wilburn has allowed us to follow his biggest challenge in life, following his journey with his Dad is a blessing, I squat tonight in his honor, putting as much energy into these as I could, these are for you Coy. 領歹 God Bless

Tonight's workout was dedicated to one of my best friends @poweraesthetics_by_cw
His dad, Coy has been battling Brain Cancer for quite some time now and the last few days have been the most difficult through this journey. My heart breaks for him and his family, but I know they will be ok because we serve an amazing God who never fails us.
Please follow @poweraesthetics_by_cw and the amazing things he has been able to accomplish in honor of his dad through this difficult time.
Please shower him and his family with love and prayers.
Faith can move mountains!
Coy Up!

315 high bar pause in jeans. In and out again today.

My dad is being moved back to OU medical and will be in hospice care. Doctor has told us he has just days at most left.

Pray for my family to have strength to see this through. Thank you.

#SquatEveryday day 811.

Before squats, was an hour of arms and then 50 minutes of bodyweight lunging in a 40lb weighted vest. Furthest I've went in the vest.

Afterwards the lunges, raw dogged a low bar 365lbs, no knee sleeves and no belt.

Last three days my dad hasn't said a word to me.

He's awake, fully aware. But words and reactions are rare.

I just stare into his eyes and talk to him, but he says nothing. Occasionally, I'll get a grin. His grin says 1,000 words to me.

I've been recording our interactions lately, or what turns out to be the lack thereof.

I really don't know what to do. There is no instruction manual to this. It's truly taking a lantern into the unknown. Every week it's something different. Just when I think it can't get worse, it does.

In the last almost four months, my dad has lost 92lbs. He's weighing 126lbs. For that entire timeframe he's either been in ICU, Rehabilation hospital, nursing home, or on a medi-flight.

They believe my father currently has either an infection or pneumonia. He will likely be back at OU Medical sometime soon as they await blood tests. He had a fever of 102 last night and refusing to eat or communicate. Doctor believe he's in pain but due to the trauma stresses on his brain he doesn't know his body is in pain.

I know this post isn't the best, it's tougher to write it, but this is currently where we are. Thank you for your continued support of my dad's battle.

Glioblastoma is evil shit. It defines 'heartbreakingly debilitating.' But we keep fighting. It will not break us. We'll never give up.
