We would like to thank everyone for their prayers! Brent's pain has eased considerably, he is able to talk with us and that is great. He has been sleeping on and off for the majority of the day, hope he'll be able to sleep tonight!

We were told by Orthopedics they plan to operate on his left shoulder Friday--we don't have a time yet. Just knowing the day, is great!

One thing we are learning is not to sweat the little things in life--and to count all things a joy! We can't explain how overjoyed we are to just be able to sit and carry on a conversation with Brent.
Today, is the one month anniversary of his accident.

Brent.....you and your family and friends are being prayed for by my family and I. We pray specifically for continued healing and the hope that comes from knowing that this life is but a small taste of the life that is to come with Jesus.

May God continue to bless you with the "little things."

I am so happy that Brent's pain has
eased. Scotty is 7 now, and I know what it is like to see your child in pain. We are all praying for Brent and your whole family everyday.

Pete, Kathy and Brent,

We have kept you in our thoughts and prayers. I check this site daily (sometimes more often) to see how you all are doing. I am sure glad Brent is getting some rest and relief from his pain.

Our prayer continues to be that God will strengthen your family as well as heal Brent's body.

We sure can see that even through this most difficult time you are letting your light shine!

In Christ's love,

Pete, Kathy and Brent,
I would like to share with you the blog site of another friend who I think you share a lot with. Pam Sailor was here at the school when we came (a teacher) and her son, Logan, is a burn victim at Shriners Burn Center in Cincinnati. His accident happened just before Thanksgiving. Her blog site reflects a lot of faith and comfort in God and I think you will find it encouraging. Here is the information (if you have time):

Go to: caringbridge.org

I don't know if you knew Pam and Jimmy or not. I hope you find encouragement from this.
We love you all!

Brent has come a long way in one month. So many prayers have been answered. I am glad they have set a date for his shoulder surgery. Brent is amazing. Ya'll are amazing. Ya'll are such an inspiration to so many people. Thank you for the update. I pray for Brent and the doctors in the upcoming surgery. I know it will go well. Pete, I also pray for your safety in traveling back and forth. You know how much I love to fly. I love ya'll Lynnetta and Benny.
