My nephew is back in the hospital

Here's the latest update on Brent.

On Sunday morning Brent was taken to Mission hospital after complaining of a headache and then vomiting several times. He was admitted immediately and during the course of the day was cared for and had several tests, a CT scan and later an MRI. Through these images, doctors detected fluid on the right side of the brain and yesterday Brent had surgery to evacuate this fluid. The surgery went well, however the fluid turns out to be an infection and now Brent will be treated with antibiotics for about 6 weeks and will remain in the hosp probably for about a week, The doctors will analyze the infectious materials and determine the best medication to treat Brent. He is once again in the care of the amazing team at CHOC in Mission hospital,

Please pray for God to guide Brents doctors in determining the best medicine to treat Brent and that he can be free of infection. Please pray for Brent to remain strong in his faith and to continue his positive attitude towards recovery. Thank you so much for your prayers!!

God Bless ALL of you

Love Always
