Day 8

Sorry for those of you that got confused. I did post yesterday but I thought it was Thursday when it was really Friday. I fixed it now.

Kyle and Amanda graduated this morning and Pete, Kathy, Bryan and Brooke were all able to attend as well as all of Kyle's family. They were able to take all of their finals and it was so good to see them both walk across that stage.

Brent is awake and alert again today. In fact he's become really honest on his pain meds and the boys are enjoying his sense of humor. They moved him from the sixith floor ICU to the third floor ICU. Brent had the nurse call Bryan on his cell to tell him they were moving him to room 303. It's a good thing Brent's on top of things because the nurse told us room 313. I'm glad he isn't leaving us to the hospital staff! Right now we are in the second floor waiting room, the same one that we were in on Tuesday during his surgery.

Update: Blood Donation
Don't forget that you can donate blood tomorrow at Pleasant Valley Church of Christ. (More details below under blog "Blood Donation")

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 1 Corinthians 1:3-4

We have been in constant prayer for Brent since the accident. God truly does answer prayers. When Ronnie had his accident 2 years ago we had such faith that God would heal him as only he could. What power in prayer. May God wrap his loving arms around you and give you comfort and peace.

Today I got to talk to Brent and I agree he is 100% on top of his treatment. Also saw his sense of humor, a good sign. My faith has increased from meeting his family, I too pray constantly for them and Brent.

Welcome back Brent, We've missed you. Your Christ-like spirit have encouraged us all even while you slept. Our prayers are continually with you for healing and strength.

Pete, Kathy, Brian and Amanda, you all have given us all such a spiritual boast by your faith in our creator and your ablility to know that God is good and his power is mighty. This has help me realize how little I talk to people about God and how important is to be in his family. Now I'm telling everybody I know. God is glorified through your hardship. We love you.

Hey Brent, I am so happy to hear that you are awake and making everyone smile. I can't wait to come back to Arkansas so I can come visit you again. I know the Lord will use you and your spirit to better further his kingdom. I pray that you continue to get better and I will see you in about a week or two.
