Brock Rocks

Keep On Keepin’ On

Brock had a chest xray today to check the pneumothorax.  It’s actually worse than it was last week.  But, he looks and acts so good that the doctors still don’t want to do anything about it yet.  I’ve seen the xray and it seems like nothing short of a miracle that he’s not in respiratory distress.

Surgery is next Tuesday to put in another infusaport, do a fundoplication, and replace his g-j tube with a g tube.  Please pray that they’ll actually be able to DO the fundoplication.  The last time we tried it didn’t work because he had so much scaring/adhesions from the fungal infection.  We REALLY want to switch out his g-j tube for a g-tube but can’t do that unless the fundo works.

Please pray also for my grandma.  She fell last Thursday down an entire flight of stairs (in her cellar).  She’s the toughest woman I know.  She managed to climb back out and get back into the house and call for help.  They medi-flighted her directly from her house (in the middle of nowhere) to the hospital.  She has 8 staples in her head, a fractured vertebrae in her neck and a fractured clavicle.  She’s wearing a neck/chest immobilizer and she managed to get out of the bed for the first time today.  Also pray for my dad as he takes care of her.

Thank you so much for continuing to lift us up in prayer!


  1. Continuing to pray for you and all your family. It just never seems to stop, but looking at Brock is looking at a miracle considering where he was last fall. Just know that God is in control! Praying for your physical and mental strength!
