They say it is darkest before the dawn. Well, although the dawn isn't here yet it is starting to look a little less dark. Brent came through the surgery really well and has already cut his pain meds in half! HALLELUJAH! This week has been sooo much better. The first night he came home he was able to sleep for 6 hours straight completely horizontal which sounds silly but that was a huge turning point for him. He hadn't REALLY slept for the last two months! With his shunt not working, it hurt his head more to be horizontal so he had to sleep sitting upright and could never really get a good night's rest. He was having to get by on just an hour here and there. I teased him that he was like the Elephan Man? Anyone ever see that movie? Ignore it if you haven't. Anyway, he is doing really well. We have felt the prayers of the masses for sure! Thank you so much to everyone for all the prayers and fasting and sweet phone calls and emails and MEALS! (Amanda, you make the best darn chocolate chip cookies I have ever eaten!!!!) I am realizing just how blessed we are to have so many wonderful people in our corner. I could never thank you enough.
