Our family has just met with the doctor that will be performing the spine surgery on Brent within the hour. This is the surgery that was originally scheduled for Friday! Praise God that there was an opening, and Brent was able to take that slot in the O.R. Brent is currently in the O.R. waiting to be operated on. The surgery is to decompress and realign the spine. It should last anywhere from 4-6 hours. We ask that you please be on your knees in prayer for the doctors, and for Brent's healing. We are remaining optimistic- Our God is an Awesome God!!
Brent went into surgery at 4:00 and should be in there for 4-6 hours. We will keep you updated as often as we get updated. During the surgery we will be on the second floor at UAMS if you want to wait with us while Brent is in surgery.
The nurse came and informed us Brent is doing very well and the surgery is going well. We are all taking great comfort knowing that God is there guiding the surgeons hands. Keep praying.
The nurse told us he is still in surgery and doing well.
Pete and Kathy wanted me to pass on a message to you all. They want to personally thank, but for now will just have to thank through the blog, all of the churches that have surround them with love and prayers, especially PV. The support and love that is surrounding them right now is very humbling. From Chuck and Hans to the elders, from the singles class to everyone else at PV, we can truly feel their love and prayers. It is almost hard to imagine what this experience would be like without the love and support of people like all of you. Looking around at others here at the hospital without people to pray with and without the knowledge that our Fathers arms are around us is scary. But we are so comforted by the fact that God is here and what an amazing God He is! We love all of you and are so comforted by your prayers.
