Update on Brian!

Brian is doing good today! They had planned to take him completely off of the ventilator today, but when they tried sitting him up and stuff, he was really weak. So they don't want to rush too fast on taking it out! They're gonna let him build his strength up a little more before taking it out! His fever is under control. Once he is off of the ventilator, they will soon transfer him to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany. It's about five minutes from Ramstein Airbase, so we're hoping that is where Ashley and Levi will be staying at during their trip over there! We are still needing to raise a bunch of money for the trip, so if you are interested in donating, please let me know!!!

They have sewn his head up and taken off all of the bandages. However, the part of his skull that they took out has not been put back in yet. They want to wait for the pressure to go down and stay down. So they will wait until after he is finished with his rehab therapy before putting it back in.

Tomorrow is the last day that Brian's parents will be in Germany before they come back home. So please pray for a safe flight back home for them and the strength to leave their sons side!! We'll hopefully have Ashley and Levi over there before too long so he won't be without family by his side before too long!! He's got his photo albums he can look at in the mean time!! =)
