I am going to do this update a little different from previous updates. Scott is doing just fine, or at least as well as can be expected but there may be some who are considering taking care of a loved one in the home or perhaps will have to make that decision in the future. The following will give you some idea of what to expect.
As you are probable aware, Scott suffers from a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). Scott is on a ventilator 24/7 and is fed through a feeding tube (g-tube) going through his abdomen into the stomach. Below is a list of things that have to be done. I am beginning the list at 8:00 AM in the morning and going through the schedule for 24 hours.
I’m determined to do more frequent updates on Scott, perhaps even weekly. Visitors to Scott’s website ask about Scott and pray for Scott and I’m so grateful for that.
We now have a ‘Join our Mailing List’ button on the site. If you register we’ll let you know when there’s an update.
Because Scott’s story is so long I am going to attempt to give the highlights of the last 19 years. I’m sure that many of you do not believe God intervenes in our lives to direct a specific outcome, but I do. If you don’t, that is okay because everyone has free will to believe as they choose.
I have not done an update on Scott’s condition in a while now but when everything is the same day after day there doesn’t seem to be a reason.
About 3 weeks ago we had to take Scott to the Emergency Room because he began to run a very high temperature. When we arrived they did blood work and his white cell count was 55,000. Those of you in the medical field will understand this is very serious. For those of us not in the medical field it means he had a raging infection of the type that would kill many people.
