Real Housewives of Orange County’s Slade Smiley and his 12-year-old son Grayson still have a tough road ahead of them as Grayson fights for his life.

Grayson, who suffers from the neurological disorder diffuse fibrillary astrocytoma, underwent a lengthy surgical procedure on October 9th to debulk a brain tumor.

Slade’s longtime live-in girlfriend, Gretchen Rossi, has provided updates on Twitter about Grayson’s condition. In response to one follower’s question about how Grayson is doing, Gretchen tweeted last night, "Better, but still in ICU." Just a week ago, on October 23rd, she tweeted, “Still in critical condition.”

Wow! Things have certainly not been easy for the little guy. Grayson is in our thoughts as we continue to hope for the best!
