update on bradley's health

I am sure many of you are wondering about this...I didn't post anything sooner, because it seems as though nothing has changed. Brad went to the Doctor at the hospital at Fort Sill on Monday. That Doc thought it would be good to give Brad's meds some time to "kick in." And also give Brad some time to get into an exercise routine to kind of stretch his lungs. He also ordered a CT scan of Brad's chest to see if there is any change in the spot they found in October. Brad will probably go back to the doctor in a week or so. They also ran some blood tests.
Brad hasn't had an asthma attack since he has been back, but he is taking two inhaled meds and three oral meds daily.

As for what the Army is going to do with Brad... nothing has happened in that regard at all. I may have said before, but its worth repeating...it probably will not be a quick process. If it turns out that they find a reason to "restrict" what Brad is able to do, then he will probably go to a medical board-as anyone with restrictions due to medical reasons would have to go to a board. There is absolutely no way to predict what the outcome would be if/when he goes before the board. So, we will just wait and see...

We are happy to be together and happy to be where we are. God has blessed us greatly and we continue with anticipation to see what He has in store for us. We know it is in His hands and are comforted greatly that we do not have to work all the details out, as He will do it for us.

  1. we know that God has a perfect plan and sometimes its not always revealed when we would like it to be and we just simply have to trust, which can be quite a test. You are daily in our prayers and our thoughts. Love Mom and Dad
