Everything is on currently on hold, but we are starting to see progress with Brent's recovery! The doctor came in tonight and took Brent's neck brace off--talking about a happy camper! If all the tests come back clean on Brent's blood work, it is our belief he will have both the spine repair and left shoulder replacement on Monday. This will help get us on the road to recovery and rehabilitation!

He is staring to eat a little better, the hospital is working with his diet--tonight--Turkey w/swiss- pickles & honey mustard, French Fries, 2 Sprites, Cherry Jello, plus a small Wendy's Frosty, supplied by mom and dad. (It's amazing how some of the smallest things are so big for us now)

Thank everyone who has been praying for Brent and his recovery. We are sure that God is answering our prayers, seems like Brent is getting a little stronger every day!

Since the weekend is here, nothing much happens till the first of the week. So I doubt there will be much in the way of new information to post for the next two days--please keep praying!

Been reading your web pages and you sound like a strong person, I have a friend that was injured oct.20 at a mx race in Decatur, Alabama. His name is Phillip Sherwood (www.phillipsherwood.com)a very strong willed person like you seem to be. I listed his web page so you can get in touch with him. He has alot of info that might help in your road to recovery. Keep your faith in god. Get well soon. Big E

This is wonderful news. Days like this help you get through the rough ones ahead because you know there are more good days to come.

We continue to pray for you Brent every day. God is working in your life and will get you through the surgeries and the the rehab. Your life will be better for all of this.

Pete and Kathy you are also in our prayers as is the rest of the family. We know this improvement means so much to you.

Yes getting to get Brent things to eat like a Wendy's frozen drink is a milestone. The simplest things are wonderful aren't they. Next he'll be wanting a pizza.

God bless you all.

Love, Don and Mary
