Monday Dec. 31

Yesterday was a good day for Brent, today seems to be starting out good also. Brent wanted an ipod and his cell phone--He does get very tired quickly. We'll see.

The x-rays from yesterday didn't look good, so they took him in for a CTscan--we heard through the grapevine that they looked about the same--they are amazed that the test look so "cruddy" but his oxygen level stays high. Brent is sitting up and talking to us when he isn't tired. He is starting to get his appetite back, he likes chocolate Ensure--he isn't going to live that down. All breathing devices have been removed. He is now breathing on his own without oxygen just room air. He is able to sit up 52 degrees now and wants to occasionally.

The most remarkable thing-- for a dad that is-- last night Brent and I sat and watched a little football on TV, that was the first TV that Brent had really watched. Amazing how some of the small things we use to take for granted are now so treasured!

I'm flying back home this evening, will return Thursday late afternoon. I will start working in Florida during the week and return up here for the weekends, hopefully long weekends. I'm so lucky to work for Farner Barley & Assoc., they have been so supportive through all of this! Thank you for your prayers--we know God has heard those prayers and is answering them!

This is wonderful news! Brent is an inspiration, as are you and Kathy. Have a safe trip home and back Pete.

We are so happy to read that Brent is having a good day today as well as last night! We hope and pray that it continues that way. We will also be praying for Pete to have a safe trip and for Kathy to have strength while he is gone.

Tell Brent we love him very much. We are so happy for the good days he has. Tell him to catch the Razorback game on Tues at 10:00 a.m. We'll make a Razorback fan out of him yet!!! Brent and you all are in our prayers.
Love - Carol H. & family

I spoke with Justin today after he had visited with Brent. Justin said Brent looks really well. We were so glad to hear that Brent is having some good days. We will continue to pray for Brent to gain strength and for your safety traveling back and forth. I know all of the church family in Little Rock and Brent's friends will continue to support Kathy while you are gone. We continue to pray for your whole family. We love you. Lynnetta and Benny

The author of has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: The greatest threat to any computer is a determined three year old with a screwdriver. Thanks for the info.
