Day 14: 12/21/07
The surgery on Brent's shoulder that was intended for today unfortunately was not performed. We are not sure as to when this surgery will take place but we will make sure to update as soon as we find out. It does sound like it will be after Christmas before any more surgery is preformed. The neurosurgeon that operated on Brent's back is currently on vacation. Our understanding is the spine needs to be stabilized to his satisfaction prior to the shoulder being operated on. Brent will have the shoulder operation from a sitting position.
As far as updates on Brent, he seems to be making slight improvements each day. His lung seems to be improving, they are talking of removing the tube draining his lung within the next few days. It seems like baby steps to us, but he is improving. We know that God is in control and has a wonderful plan for Brent!
