Update on Beau

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for my brother. I know it is helping him heal.

He is doing a lot better than the first time I saw him. He has regained consciousness and he is breathing on his own. I was there last night and he was able to answer yes and no questions. He even gave Melissa a little wink. They have been trying to get him up and walking but he is still so out of it. I don't know if it is because of the medicine he is taking or the mass on his brain that is causing it. I am hoping it is the medicine. His head is still hurting him a lot. A group of doctors are getting together tomorrow to figure out the next step. They will have to go into his brain to find out what is going on. Hopefully they will do that soon so we have a better idea of what is happening and why. I would love it if they could take away some of the pain he is feeling.
I will let you know when I know more.

I am so glad to hear he regained consciousness. That is huge! I have been thinking of you and your family ever since hearing the news and am glad he is making steps in the right direction. We'll start praying for the doctors as well. It seems like he improving and for that we are grateful.

That's a great idea that Stephanie said about praying for the doctors as well- I'll do that as well as for your brother! I know you've heard this tons and I've already told you- BUT call me if you need ANYTHING- alright- I'm serious- kay good! Love you girl
