More of the same

This is Matt, Jenny's brother. Jenny has asked me to give an update from the weekend. Jenny and Brad are currently resting and watching movies...

It has been more of the same over the past couple of days. He is staying in his bed and continues to have "spells" that interrupt his breathing. Brad trys to talk less to keep his breathing up but continues to show his resilience and belief that he can overcome his disease and the latest setback. His positive attitude is remarkable and unrelenting. Last night was better than the night before and there was a small church service held this morning.

Thank you very much for the thoughts and prayers. The support and love shown to my family has been overwhelming and I can't put into words what it means to us. We continue to walk by faith and not by sight and know that God will show us through this.

Prayers upon prayers are being said, and we are boldly continuing to ask (beg) for total healing.

Thanks, Matt, for the update. Both the Wims and the Crotts families are an inspiration to all of us who are following Brad's progress. You are teaching us all by example what a FAMILY really does for each other. God bless all of you!
