More Bed Rest

Friends & Family,

Brad went back to the doctor today for another follow-up appointment. The doctor was pleased with Brad's healing over the past week, but unfortunately the incision has not entirely healed & is still draining some. Dr. Marco said that Brad should continue bed rest on his stomach for at least another week. I am asking for prayers for Brad's mental health during this week.

Friends from church have been so wonderful to come by each day for visits. It really helps to pass the time when he shares the evening with guys to play video games, cards, and dominoes.

I would also like to request prayers that Brad is able to rest at night. He has really struggled to get comfortable enough to fall asleep and stay asleep in the evening. Most nights he only gets to sleep 2 or 3 hours, thus making for long nights when the rest of the house is snoring around him. Of course, it doesn't help his mind to be tired all the time.

Thank you so much for all of your help. You are the most amazing support group: your cards, calls, visits, dinners, and prayers mean so much to us. We are truly blessed.

We love you all.
