I write this once again asking for prayers and positive thoughts for my nephew Brent. Pasted below is the latest update as of today (7-11-10).
Here's a picture of Brent with the boys this past 4th of July.
It is with very heavy hearts that we share the results of the most recent CT scan. Fluid continues to increase near the right side of Brents brain. The doctor is concerned and wants to be pro-active and has recommended surgery to remove the fluid. Surgery is scheduled for this Monday at 11:10 at Mission Hospital.
Thank you for the prayers for our son and may God continue to watch over us ALL and give us strength in our lives.

Brent asked that his surgery not be publicized as he didn't want to make a big deal about it :-( but it seems he had a change of heart and let his parents post about it on the "official update blog". He is making such progress and is understandably disappointed to have to be going back in for surgery which will require a few days to a week hospital stay and missed therapy appointments. We were with him on Saturday night and he was in good spirits and positive as always.I am asking that you PLEASE, PLEASE PRAY that his surgery will go smoothly and that he will recover quickly. Thank you all so much for holding him and my sister & Ed close in your hearts tomorrow morning. I know my SB mommy friends know exactly what my sister is going through right now. The pain of sending your child into surgery is just horrible - my heart aches for her right now but my head knows that everything will be alright. I believe in God's healing power, the power of prayer and the strength of our family.
