Update Following Dr. Brinker Appointment


We went in to see Dr. Brinker on Wednesday of this week. Bandages were removed, PT instructions were given and everything seemed to look good. The only thing that really didn't sit well with Brad was the fact that Dr. Brinker didn't want Brad to cover his incision with anything. Dr. Brinker said that he wanted the incision to be open to the air and Brad in turn replied to him, "yes, open to the air and open to all the germs!" Dr. Brinker reassured him that his incisions WERE NOT going to get infected....I liked the certainty in his voice. His leg really does look great and we are super happy about that!

I included pictures of all Brad's war wounds...by the time he is finished with all these surgeries..you could play checkers across his leg with all the criss cross scars.

Now that is some art work there... I am sure this is something Brad is going to treasure when Zeke grows up and he gets to share his stories. We are praying for your family and we are glad to hear the good news.

Suspect that you are not getting all your messages. Left a message yesterday that didn't get posted so I'll leave it again and hopefully I will do it right this time. Just know that there are many praying for you. Zeke, you were right about the blue shirt. You look great in it. We praying for all to be well there! A big hug to everyone, including Granddad and Nonnie. Love, Jerry and Ann Jay from Granbury

Hi Jenny! You might not remember me but I was in the AFC with you and Brad, and I am best friends with Camille. I just got to check out your blog and I wanted you to know I am praying for your family.
