Brent says, Merry Christmas everyone.

Today we are starting to get a little more information on how Brent's surgery's will proceed. Brent is on tomorrows fill-in list for surgery to his right lung, the plans are to take him in for a Bronchoscopy. (This could be done outside surgery, but due to Brent's condition the doctors prefer him to be in the operating room) He is still having problems keeping the right lung clear, if this procedure doesn't take place he could easily develop pneumonia. We are still waiting to hear when Dr. Pait will return from vacation and be able to take care of the screw problem with Brent's spine. After that, Orthopedic will fix Brent's shoulder, we think we are talking only days now.

Kathy and I really appreciate your emails, phone calls, and encouragement. It's a little lonely spending Christmas Day in ICU, but with all your support things are easier!

Brent seems to be able to communicate a little better each day, and is much more alert. God is healing him and making him stronger, thank you for your prayers!

I Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

Isaiah 4:10 Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.

Merry Christmas Brent and Adams Family - My family and church family are still praying for you all: Brent, family, friends... for your comfort and strength. You are all loved and thought of every day. Brent is such a strong-willed guy and if your family is anything like him then the Lord picked the right people for whatever plan He had in mind, and that you'll use every day of this to strenthen others. You are all so loved. Merry Christmas again :)

Oh Brent, I don't know if this will get to you, but I just wanted you to know that I have been praying for you continuously. I know that God loves you more than any of us can even imagine and His love will carry you. And to Brent's family...I am lifting you up as well. I hope that God will give you comfort and strength.
Love,
