Brinton Update

I just wanted to post a quick update.. I keep forgetting to bring my labtop up to the hospital so I can just post from there! So my next trip to Manheim I will have to put it on my list. 

So all of her MRI, MRA, MRV, and Spinal Cord scan can back pretty normal.  She does have slight swelling on her spinal cord at the top, which is pushing on her brain.  This would cause the lack of use of her arms. Her facial drooping has cleared up and she is starting to be able to be fed through a feeding tube.  The feeding tube is only due to her breathing tubing, which should be coming out today!! Please pray for that process that it would come out today and that her lungs would not contract anything from being so exposed. 

Yesterday afternoon they tried to do another spinal tap, but was unsuccessful to get any fluid due to being dried out for the breathing tube.  This is a huge discouragement to us!!! All of us were hoping to get fluid and figure out what is going on through that fluid. 

Currently, they still do not know what is going on.  She is now being tested for Lymes Diease more or less to just rule it out. She is still receiving anti viral meds, antibiotics, and some other meds. 

Our prayer needs:
- Pray that God would heal Brinton's body even if they never find a cause for this...
- Pray for Elijah, Hudson, and Kelvie as they are getting a little more ready for life to get back to normal.
- Pray that Elijah's cold would clear up
- Just for strength for Kent and I to continue to show God through us to everyone we come in contact with... for MBIC peeps we are trying to remember PlanA through all of this...

Thank you so much for all of your calls, text, fb msgs. and concerns about our little family!!!!
