Sorry, it's been a couple days since the last post--in some ways time goes so slowly and then other times it seems we can't keep up with the days that fly past.
Brent is doing really well in rehabilitation and is making progress everyday. Still working on the left shoulder trying to get more range of motion. It will be several more weeks before he will be able to bare weight on it.
Today we had a conference with everyone involved in Brent's recovery; Social Worker, Doctors, Nurses, Physical Therapists, Representative of the Arkansas Spinal Commission and it sounded like several others. (I was working in Georgia, and was on a conference call with them) Everyone seemed happy with Brent's progress.
The decision was made to keep Brent in Baptist Rehabilitation until February 8th. At that time he will have to come out of rehab. until he is cleared to bear weight on his shoulder. We don't have an exact time frame on how long this will be, anywhere from a few weeks to a month is a good guess. We are looking at two options; the first will be to get a handicap apartment for Brent and Kathy will stay with him, I will still fly back and forth--working Monday thru Thursday then staying in Little Rock, Friday thru Sunday night. With all the support Brent has with PV Church of Christ and the Singles Group this option has great merit. The other would be to bring Brent home to Leesburg where he could stay with us. This also has merit, so I guess where I'm going with all this verbiage is that we need your prayers that the best direction for Brent will become clear.
Brent continues to have an amazing spirit, he is so strong in his love of God--I stand in awe! I can't begin to thank everyone who continues to visit and lift his spirits! Thank you so much PV, and West Orange Church of Christ! Don't think we could have made it this far with out your support!
Brent loves visitors! (forgive him is he is asleep when you come) Your welcome to call his cell phone also, if he is out of the room just leave a message.
