Brent has been in isolation for the past few days, we just got the report back that he is free of infection! There will be one final blood report, that should come back in the morning. We feel confident that will also come back clean and free of infection, Brent's temperature has been perfect for the past few days.
Thank each and everyone of you for lifting Brent up in your prayers, God has heard those prayers and has answered in a positive way!
We also understand that Brent's surgery is scheduled for 7:15AM CST tomorrow, this surgery is to repair his left shoulder, we won't know the extent of the surgery till after it is completed. We are not sure if both operations (shoulder and spine) are going to take place at the same time.
Just got a call from Kim M., she told us that Pleasant Valley had a prayer time after service tonight with about 20 from the Singles Class--praying for Brent's surgery and healing to be successful! When I told Brent there wasn't a dry eye in the room! Thank you so much!
David R., emailed this morning, Jon Gruden the Head Coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers send Brent a letter and some Buccaneer game gifts. It was a touching letter, written in such a positive way. It is so neat, when a head coach of a professional football team will take the time to write a letter just hours before a big game! Thank you David, Brent was grinning from ear to ear!
To each that have posted comments- thank you! I we read, then reread each several times a day.
I'm sure we will post tomorrow several times as we get updated as the surgery/recovery progress.
