I just took a look at Brent's blog, couldn't believe it's been so long since I've updated it. So, to bring you up to date on everything........here goes.
Most of Brent's days are filled with waking up, eating breakfast, getting ready for physical therapy, going to therapy for an hour and half, coming back to his room and crashing. Eating lunch, getting ready for more therapy, going to therapy (another hour and half), coming back to the room and crashing, eating supper. Getting ready to do it over the next day!
Everyone here at Baptist Rehabilitation is amazing, his physical therapist are so caring and professional. I'm not sure we could have found a better place for Brent if we had searched all over the country! (which we did do)
Now for the latest news; as most know Brent is going to need to come out of rehab. for several weeks. This needs to be done until he can bear weight on his left shoulder and arm. Hans O. and Jeff S. spent a lot of time going out and looking for apartments in Little Rock that will meet Brent's needs. They found several, Kathy and I went out and looked at each of them. The last one we saw held the most promise, it is located about ten miles from Baptist Hospital in a suburb of Little Rock called Maumelle. It is small but very nice and in a gated complex, you have a sense of security and safety. We gave Brent the choice of either coming back home to Florida or staying here in Little Rock....he really wanted to stay around here because of all his church friends at Pleasant Valley Church of Christ.
So it looks like Friday the 8th is going to be the big moving day for Brent. I'll be coming in late Thursday night and staying thru the weekend. Pleasant Valley is getting some help for Brent and Kathy lined up for the 4 days each week that I'll be working. There is no way we could do this without our church family! We are so thankful for so many things and have been blessed in ways that we can't even describe.
Please continue to pray for Brent's healing, we have not and will not, give up on Brent's complete healing.
