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!
