More Good News! Update from Dr.'s Report

We just saw his wonderful Dr. and received an amazingly great report. We found out Brayden's white blood cell count has again been cut in half since yesterday. Liver and kidney function still great! Blood work looks good; nothing else to worry about for now! Chest tube will go ahead and stay in preventatively for one more day. Moving out of ICU today! The more good news we get, the more I realize we're breathing again...not holding our breath and cringing against bad news. More answers to prayer!

Quote of the day: From Brayden to the Dr."So do I get to ride in the helicopter back home?" We all laughed and they said, "Your mom and dad don't want you to ever have to ride in that helicopter again.

Thank you for visits today from Nini Annette, Pastor Brewer for visiting and praying with us all the way from Pea Ridge First Assembly. More fun gifts from momma's girl Melanie from Malt-O-Meal. He's digging that stuff! He put that hat on right away and was grinning with delight over all the cool stuff!
Thank you to Michael Lawrence for mowing our lawn. Only another guy would think of this when a mom wouldn't. It made Bryan's day and choked him up. It means so much to us!!

  1. Sue has been keeping me updated on Brayden. We are so thrilled to hear of this most recent positive report. We hope for more good news to come. We have been praying for you at home and at church. Misty, Tanner, and Kailey send their love. We love you and hope to see you soon. Uncle Buddy and Aunt Vicki as well as Jarad and Jamie who made this possible due to my infinite lack of computer skills. Keep up the fight Brayden!!!

  9. Lisa, I am at a loss as to what to say. Know that I just found out today. I am praying. I can't imagine anything scarier that what you are going through. But I know you will be a testimony to so many through this journey. I knew when I first met you that there was something different about you... It is your confidence and faith in the one true God.
    An encouraging word from my Beth Moore study- Trust in Him at all times,O people; Pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge. Psalm 62:8
    We can already tell Brayden is going to be a real "Trooper" through this.

  10. Lisa, your very well written blog is so helpful and uplifting for those of us craving the latest information about Brayden's recovery. My friendship with your family is relativley new, but my concern for Brayden, you and Bryan is great. Though the road will be long, I pray that your family will enjoy the success ours did when my neice, Alexa, came through a cancer battle of her own last year.
    It was good to see all of you during Zach's and my quick trip to LR this week. I'm so happy the news has gotten better and better. Keep it coming! Denise Simpson
