Chugging Along

Beau came home from Texas last Monday (August 16th)...since then he has been to Macon, Dublin, St. Simons, back to Dublin and now he has gone back to North Carolina. Who would have thought a "resection proximal humerus with reconstruction endoprosthesis " would have slowed Beau down? Not me...

He did have quite a bit of pain at first but that has been getting better as the days go by. His pain patch is working well, and for the most part, he can get by on one or two pain pills per day instead of one every four hours.

Beau and Jessica will return to Texas around September 20th to meet with the surgeon that worked on his arm. At that time, he should be getting out of the sling and beginning physical therapy. It's going to take a while before Beau will be able to use his arm like he wants to so please pray for patience and determination on Beau's part (although I don't think Beau has ever been lacking in the latter).

Thanks for continuing to support Beau throughout this process...more updates to follow :)


"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance...Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him." James 1:2-3, 12

Thanks for the updates Maggie! Praise God Beau continues to heal. Yes he is a very determined guy and that's a good thing. Praying he continues to heal and can get back to doing what he wants to. Love, hugs & prayers, Aunt Denise & Uncle Jim

He is my God, and I will praise Him, my father's God, and I will exalt Him.
