    Tom, Marlene, Brad and Family,
    Still keeping you all in our prayers for a full and quick recovery.  Sounds like you have a lot of rehab ahead Brad.  Will pray for patience for you.  Healing takes a while - Work hard and hang in there.  So many folks are praying for you.  Take care.

    Hi Brad,

    My name is Stacy and I work with your dad.

    I just wanted to let you know that yet another person (myself) has got you covered with prayers.  I don't know what to say other than that I pray for a super speedy recovery for you and peace for you and your family while you are going through this. 

    Take care,  Stacy Londerville

    I haven't heard anything in a while, but I'm still thinking about and praying for you. I did see, however, that you had been moved to rehab. I'm very happy to hear that! Keep up the good work!

    Hello Brad and Schaust Family,     Well, it seems that you have all been on a bit of a roller coaster ride these last couple of weeks.  I am sorry for all the pain and discomfort you must be in Brad, and Tom & Marlene---I can't even imagine how you must feel.  Know that you are all loved and are being prayed for by so many people.  May the love and comfort of God surround and may you feel His loving arms wrapped around you when you need it most.  Hang in there and know that there are better days ahead.  Love in Christ,   Elaine

    It was great getting an E-mail from you!  Hope things are going better for you!  Ryan and Kelsey wanted very much to come and visit you at Christmas time but the roads haven't been very good for traveling due to all the snow we accumilated.  They are thinking about New Years Eve depending on the weather.  Kelsey's puppy got her own puppy bed for Christmas.  She loves it alot.  Kelsey has pictures of Morgan on her cell phone, ask her to show them to you.  She has really grown alot!  Take care and I'll be talking to your mom shortly.

    HI Brad,

    Well today didnt work out so well I hear.. Back in the ICU with that awful tube you love so much (NOT)... Well hopefully now that they put a clamp on the area that has been bleeding things will improve quickly for you.. Look at this as a bump in the road on your recovery.. Keep up your great attitude about moving forward in your recovery and in No time you will be back on your feet... As always we are still praying for you everyday and will be until you are fully recovered.. Keep smiling :)..

    Hey Brad,
    Keep hanging in there.  Everyday will get better.  You are in a great hospital that works wonders.  Everybody is praying for you to get better.  Keep your head up & every day is closer to recovery.

    Thinking of your family today and sending good wishes your way for a very productive therapy day!  Give it your all Brad and show those therapists how strong you are.  You will be amazed at your progress when you look back at the end of the week!

    Praying that you all are getting rest and feel some peace for this journey.  Know that the Lord is with you and rest easy in His caring hands.  Praying for you all!
