Update on Brent from Friday night

Here is the update that was posted late last night (Friday night) about Brent. Because it hadn't been shared publicly, I waited to mention the great news in my previous post. Seeing Brent breathe on his own yesterday was so WONDERFUL! We know that this is only one hurdle amongst the many that he will face in the coming months but it was a biggy and we couldn't have been happier. We just need to keep praying that his body will continue to wake up. I am just counting the minutes until I see his beautiful eyes sparkle again.


Mingie and Ed called tonight with some more good news tonight. They reported that Brent is now breathing on his own and the ventilator has been removed. YES! He is resting comfortably however he is still in a coma. The medication that they had Brent on to keep him in the coma has been stopped. Brent has still not opened his eyes. The family is at his bedside and are happy for another moment of good news. Brent still has so much more to overcome.

Ed and Mingie are sorry but they will not be at the Car Wash/Bake Sale tomorrow because they will be with Brent but want you to know how very THANKFUL they are for everyones support!! Please keep praying!

SUCH GREAT NEWS!! Just one more wonderful step in the right direction, and I am SO thankful to hear it!! Waking up from a coma isn't quite what we would's not as though one just opens their eyes as if from a good nights is more commonly a slower, more progressive process - and it sounds like Brent is on a very positive path towards recovery. We will be praying for more great news this week :o) Much love to you all! xoxo
