Day 20 2:45 PM
Things are still about the same with Brent today. He is heavily sedated, there are times we believe he hears us talking and at times makes hand gestures (a thumbs up) when we say things to him. We still see the positive attitude in Brent, he has always been an extremely upbeat and positive person!
Brent still has the ventilator in to help his lung to heal. All his vital signs are now strong. It is our understanding he is to have another "Broncoscopy" this afternoon, to further clean his lung. The last news on further surgery is they plan to do the shoulder surgery this coming Monday morning. We have met with the doctors and the following needs to be accomplished.
(The nurse just called Kathy and they are doing the Broncoscopy now) 3:00 PM
We ask that you pray for the following;
Blood cultures to be free from infection. The infection and fever is what stopped the left shoulder surgery on Monday the 17th.
The lung needs to clear and be free of fluid.
The neurologist needs to make the determination on the screw in Brent's spine.
Brent's peace and comfort.
We continue to be bless with support, it's amazing that people we didn't know a few weeks ago have now become such a large part of our family. I am continually amazed that Kathy and I are 900 miles from our "home" but it seems like we have come "home". Our family has definitely made many life long friends!
Thank you so much for you prayers and support.
Pete & Kathy
