Brian's progress

I am so amazed at the miracle of prayer. Brian is improving so much every day. Last night he was able to sleep for several hours in a row (with the help of a little ambien). He is still very tired and in a lot of pain, but it is getting better everyday.

Tomorrow he will have surgery on the right leg. I got to see the open wound. It is not the prettiest thing I've seen, but I think it looks so good. Very healthy. You can see the bone and tendons. We are just thankful that the tendons are there.

The doctors are talking about us going home this weekend sometime. It's going to be a challenge to go home since he can't put any weight on the legs for 8-12 weeks, but it will be nice to get home and have some sort of routine develop. I have the carpenters (Cary and Jake) working today to widen the doors to the bathroom and bedroom and build a ramp. I'm so glad that we have such good friends and children.

My girlfriends came over yesterday when I went home to get some things done and more clothes and take a shower. They just took over and did laundry, cleaned, took care of the pool, and took care of all the food in the fridge. They packed me a cooler full of fruit and veggies!! I don't think there are words to express how grateful I am. To them as well as all our friends that are offering their services. We are so blessed.

I will continue to post updates as we get them here. It is nice to be able to express what all is going on. I have so many mixed emotions, but I am mostly just thankful that Brian is alive and doing so well.
