Bryan is awake, but still unresponsive. He can move his left arm, but he doesnt move on command. It’s just random movement. The brain injury he sustained was severe enough that We were told the only chance he would have for any kind of recovery was to be sent to an inpatient Neuro rehab facility. He was just accepted at TIRR Memorial Herman in Houston. It’s ranked #1 in the state and #2 in the nantion for neuro rehab facilities. We were told by Dr.s that this is what he needs. He has made so much progress since the beginning, but he has a long way to go. He still has a trach and feeding tube. We are in the process of trying to getting the trach out, may take a week if he tolerates each step well.
Rehabilitation could take up to year. The year mark is when we will know to what extent he is able to recover and how permanent some of the damage is. Whether he recovers all the way or only partially, a year is the time frame they gave us for progress. We were told not much recovery happens after the year mark of a brain injury. But with all of this, I’m thankful everyday for his life. I’m thankful everyday for the smallest progress. One day he met my gaze for a couple of seconds and looked at me intently. His face was completely blank, but my baby looked in my eyes. I needed that at the exact moment it happened. If it’s God’s will, I know the Great Physician can heal no matter what Bryan’s Dr.s say. Thank you so much for all prayers. God gives me strength daily to handle what I need to handle for my family. ~Tasha Burk

Billy Nelson is doing better every day and we are patiently waiting still on his kidney and after seeing the doctor today he said it definitely will be waking up & we just have to wait until it does! That was really good news we thought. No needle biopsy today not really sure why I thought there was going to be but there wasn’t. We will be doing an ultrasound on Monday but I don’t think much concern from the doctors on that either. Just something they do after this length of time. Joey is doing great and in less and less pain especially since he got his staples out. I believe Billy gets his staples out next week and I think that will make a difference for him too. I am fine as my daughter is still with us and is here for sure when we have to go to Shreveport. Such a blessing to have a daughter like her.

I am in my last semester of college before getting my bachelor’s, and I’m applying for a law enforcement job which requires me to have good vision.

I need everything to happen quickly, so it doesn’t jam up the employment application process.

Pray for strength and courage for him and his family and any kind of treatment to help . I am thankful he is a Christian!~Melody Fitzgerald
Dad is more alert and is talking but not eating. The dr says it doesn’t look real good. When he is released he will go back to the nursing home and will I’m sure be back and forth to the hospital. He will not get better but the goal is to try and keep him comfortable. Thank God he is in no pain. I pray for Gods will and know he is in control.
I am in Arkansas with my dad and he is in the hospital. He is dehydrated, low blood pressure, fluid around his heart and fluid in his lungs. He has improved a little but I’m sure because of the IV. He is not himself and is not talking. A little smile every now and then. We think some of this may be that he is stressed over the situation about moving to Texas. Please keep him in your prayers. ~Delores Hill
