Jan. 13th- Day 37.
Brent told us today has been the best day ever in his entire stay here at UAMS. Brent has been able to get some much needed rest. He was able to work on his range of motion exercises earlier today and seems to be getting a little more movement than he was yesterday! Way to go Brent! His back is also continuing to heal. His lung is continuing to improve. They will continue to do breathing exercises with Brent once he enters rehab to make that lung even stronger. He still has a long road ahead of him but his desire to fight is evident. He is to do exercises in reps of 10, 3 times a day. He always goes the extra measure to do a few more than he has to.
Around 4:00 today, physical therapy came to work with Brent. The objective was to get him sitting up in bed, with minimal pain. I think Brent was a little hesitant to let the three women try to move him, but he let us. We were able to get Brent sitting up 90 degrees in bed, with his feet on the floor.-with minimal pain!:) After a few minutes, the pt told him he could lay down. He requested to stay sitting up just a little be longer. He sat up easily 7-10 minutes. He did wonderful!! He said it felt so good to finally be able to sit up! Brent has had a great day, working hard toward his recovery.
Pete and Bryan had a safe flight back to Florida today. It was great to have the entire family here for a few days.
Thank you all so much for your prayers. We cannot thank you enough! Brent also expresses his appreciation to each and everyone of you. We can't imagine going through this without the support that you all have granted our family. What a blessing it is to be a part of God's family!!

Justin asked to lead the prayer at homecoming Saturday night. Justin prayed for Brent and his recovery. Justin said he had several people from the other team come up to him following the prayer and ask about Brent's accident and told Justin that they would pray for Brent even though they didn't know him. I am so glad to hear that Brent is having a good day and he is making such good progress. I think the physical therapists are going to be amazed at what Brent is going to be able to accomplish with Brents determination and all the people that are praying for him. We pray for him continually. We love ya'll. Lynnetta and Benny
