jan. 10th

Today seems to have been a good day so far. Brent still has pains, but is able to manage it. They are in the process of slowing taking him off some of the pain medications. The physical therapist came in this afternoon and was able to show us a few exercises to help Brent start the road of recovery. The pt was very helpful and was able to talk to mom and I for an extended period of time, giving us added hope for the future. We were also able to visit with the orthopedic surgeon that will be performing the surgery on his shoulder tomorrow. It looks like the surgery will begin around 8:00am. Please pray that there will be no infections and the surgery can go on as scheduled. We are also asking that you pray for the doctors, that they may be able to repair the shoulder inset of having to replace it. Although both are an option, repairing will be a lot better in the long term.

Bryan and dad will be on their way to Little Rock tomorrow. Please pray for them to have a safe flight. Thank you so much for all your prayers!

Dear Brent and family,
We just wanted you all to know that we are still praying for Brent over here in NC. Thank you so much for taking the time to keep us updated on his progress. He's on the prayer board at church, so everyone there can keep up too! Just always remember that God has plans to do Brent, and all of you, good! I am inspired and uplifted by your continuing strength and faith!
In Christ,
Eric, Courtney, Ali and Dylan Sager

Dear "Miss Kathy", Brent and family~
We pray for you and your family every day. Cassie is 9 1/2 years old now and in the 3rd grade at CHBS. Her prayers for Brent are so sweet and heartfelt. Your strong faith has been so encouraging and uplifting to me. We've only gotten to know you "Miss Kathy", but I feel so close to the rest of your family from reading your journal. I am so excited about Brent's future and how God will use him to further his kingdom. Much love,
Sissy McWhirt
