Surgery it is...
Hi everyone!! We hope you all had a good summer. It went by so fast!

Marcus had a follow up appointment today with orthopedics in Shreveport. They have determined he needs more surgery. His left leg is still broken. They are going to remove the rod from his femur. They will then run a drill through the center of the bone and place another rod, pulling the bone together at the break. They also wondered why his range of motion in his right arm had not improved more. Apparently, the rod that is in his ulna is sticking out of the top where the bone is suppose to sit in the elbow. This keeps him from being able to fully extend his arm. They are going to remove this rod. (One of the blessings we do have is that every therapist he has seen has said they have seen other people with less damage to their arms not have the range he has now. 😊 But if it can improve let's do it, right?) And lastly, they are going do some revision to his right leg. (I still do not call it a stump!!! It is still a leg!!! 😊) When the amputation was performed they had to do what they could with what they had to work with. When they closed the skin over the bone it left creases in places. Imagine wrapping a ball with paper to make the paper meet at the edges. You have to make some folds to accomplish this. Well, there are folds that bother him & cause some pain when wearing his leg. They are going to perform some plastic surgery to smooth out the scar. This part of the surgery will have him off his legs a few weeks. They are going to do all of this at the same time. We are looking at the week of Tuesday the 23rd. I will let you all know when I'm sure of the date. Just another step in our new life.

I can not believe that one month from today it will have been a year that I almost lost my best friend, my husband. It stills feels just like last week. From time to time I can be sitting anywhere, work, my car, it doesn't matter, and all of a sudden the feelings I had that day come flooding in. I remember the feelings I had when I finally accepted that it was his car that was sitting in that ditch. The feeling I had when I finally found him because he wasn't in the car. The feeling when they flew away with him in that helicopter. The feeling I had as I walked in the room seeing him hooked up to all of the machines and my girls and my mom pulling me down the hall because I could not make my legs move to leave him in that room alone. Those feelings are still there for me. I can not imagine what feelings he still has. I do know one thing, he is still amazing! His push and drive just astound me. I do not believe I could have done what he has done!! I am so blessed to be able to call him mine.

We thank you all for the continuing prayers! I promise they are felt every day and are still being answered!! We continue to pray for all of you as well!! We love you all!! Have a great evening!! God bless!! ❀️❀️

Updates From The Brookes

Good evening everyone!! As you all saw he got a new socket for his leg as the other had become too big. Along with it he also got a new hydraulic ankle!! It helps his gate as he walks as well as walking up & down inclines. We are so excited!! However, after only wearing it for a day and a half he developed blisters along the top of his thigh. He hasn't been able to wear it since last Wednesday. But we are working on getting them healed and trying some stuff to prevent it from happening any more. We are hoping after, maybe, one more socket change he will be able to use suction or vacuum to wear the leg rather than the velcro strap that holds it on now. He is moving right along!

His pain management doctor is working with him to get him off all the meds he came home from the hospital with per Marcus's request. At his appointment last week the practitioner and the nurse were surprised when he asked for his pain meds to be decreased. They said they never have patients ask for a decrease. Lol! He took his last Neurontin (Gabapentin) last night. This is a medicine for nerve pain used with amputees frequently. However, it didn't seem to be very effective in treating the phantom pain. Coming off this medication can be just as tricky as narcotics. It can cause fatigue and amplify depressed feelings. He will probably not feel very good for a few days, but we will work together to fight the symptoms until it is out of his system. He wants to get off of as many meds as possible to see what his "true" pain is. Most of the medications he is on cause withdrawal like symptoms as they wear off through out the day which causes him to just feel bad and achy. This way he will know what pain he can deal with without "feeling bad" too. Prayers for a smooth transition please. He is going to do great I know!!

He had an orthopedic follow up Thursday. He got some disappointing news. His left femur that was broken in 2 places is not healing. They actually said it appears it has stopped healing. We are waiting for a call from the surgeon over the orthopedic clinic to let us know if and when they want to perform surgery again. The intern physician that saw him Thursday felt pretty sure they would have to do the surgery. She said they would remove the rod from the femur and place another. This would in turn "wake the bone up" to stimulate it to begin healing again. Discouraging because this will mean more time off work and not to mention more healing time. But whatever they have to do to get him back to life as normal as possible, we will handle it.

I am, in the meantime, trying to find him a new mechanical wheelchair. He wants lightweight and small. (And of course all black) We were blessed with the chair he has now thanks to Marshal Home Medical in Texarkana! They went above and beyond when we needed everything to come home!! However, this chair has been pretty active and the zip tied arm rests are showing the wear! πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ So if anyone has any suggestions, I would welcome them to check into!

We hope you are all having a blessed weekend!! We also hope you have an even better week!! I will update again as we learn more from his recovery! Thank you all for your continued support and prayers!! We are so blessed with such an amazing support group!! Not only our wonderful friends, but all of you as well!! We are so thankful for all of you!! God bless!!

Hey everyone! I hope you're all well today! I just have a quick story to share.
So last night we went to the track with our friends, Jon Minter, Christopher M Hughes, & Monica Minter. We had a great time! Met up with Bryan-Danielle Tefteller & met some new people.

One of the conversations we had was about the wheel stand at Gilliam Marcus did a few years ago. It was pretty crazy! There is a YouTube video "Bro Do You Even Lift?" & lots of comments about it. But that was about 4 years ago (maybe longer than that). It's always fun to talk about & share the videos.

Jump ahead to us getting home last night. Marcus had showered & was just telling me how he had had many, many second thoughts on building the new car. Thoughts about the money, fear of something happening, learning the new set up, etc. I told him, of course I want him back in the driver's seat, but I also want him to be happy with the decision of whether or not to do it. I didn't want him to regret anything. Of course he said, "Then what would I do? Just be crew chief?"

As we laid in bed watching tv to wind down at 2:30 in the morning, a message came through on our Facebook messenger. A person messaged to say he had been a big fan of Marcus's since he had seen him race at Gilliam & saw him put the car on the back bumper.....we have never received a message from this person before.

Mind you, the track we went to last night was in Paris, Texas..... This person is from Arkansas.... No where near the track where we were.

I tell you this story to show you God is every where & hears everything!!! We don't talk about "the wheelie" every day nor every time we go to the track to a new person. We just happened to last night. God heard & saw the conversations we had. He used one person to show us & remind us He is with us. For Marcus to have the feelings of doubt about his future car or even ever racing again, then for God to have this person message him to let him know he has been following him since that day in Gilliam & wants to bring his son's car to Marcus to get it done right. Just to show us that people are watching. We can't give up. I truly believe God can use Marcus & our friends in the racing scene to touch many others! Maybe that's what He has in His plan. Who knows...but I do know the message from that person last night, was a signal from our Lord. Remember....He is always there! Even when you don't think about Him being there!! πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’πŸ’

Beautiful, Jess thank you for sharing..

Amen. Prayers are still sent to my Friend and his family

Yes, He is in the midst of everything we do and will speak to us anytime and anywhere as long as we are open to hearing Him! I pray God continues to guide you all and uses you and your story to touch other lives to see Him working through you!

God is so good! Still thinking about y’all & sending our prayers!

Awesome!

God is awesome! -Michele

Awesome. .the Marcus I know doesn't quit...God just reminded him ....have a good day..

Psalm 32:8 - I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.To be back literally full speed within months leaves me speechless sometimes. It's all how you choose to think of the situation. Attitude is every thing and negative thoughts are the devil creeping in.

Yes he is always there and will guide Marcus and you Jess to what he wants done!!! Just like I don't believe it was an accident that Marcus was the first person I thought of about the Hemp Oil when thet were telling us at the product launch what it was doing. I didn't have a clue thst it had been recommended that he try it my one of the Drs.

Marcus you have too much talent not to use it bro. As always the racing community has your own back.

With God ,, all things are possible,, and nothing is too trivial!, so if the desire is there and the capacity to make it happen financially,, then go for it! Enjoy life to the fullest!❀️❀️

His timing is perfect❀️ What’s that saying - if God puts a Goliath before you, He knows there’s a David inside you. #WheelsUp

Beautiful story.... uplifting!!@

Good morning!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!! I haven't posted in a while because I just couldn't come up with the words to tell you in an interesting way about our day to day life. But the other day Marcus told me it didn't have to interesting. Just anything could be told. He said there is someone following this page that may need to hear that we just sat at the table & had dinner as a family or that he is working on another car with his friends. I started thinking about that. You know this page was started to update our friends & family about Marcus's condition & progress right after the accident. I never dreamed there would be almost 1,200 people following our life. Marcus said "I don't know 1,200 people!" πŸ˜‚ Well, now 1,200 people know him.

As we watched Stephen Furtick (I hope that is how it's spelled! If not I will correct it.) this morning, he talked about God breaking us to give us blessings & to use us to give others blessings as He broke Jesus, the Bread of Life, to bless us. Yes this journey has absolutely been a huge roller coaster!! We have asked God many times, "Why us, God?" We may never know the answer. What I do know is that He has used the miracle He performed with Marcus on Saturday, November 4, 2017, to touch many people! He used it to open my eyes & my heart to His word in a way I have never heard it before. Before I would listen to a sermon, & agree the preacher made some good points, sing the hymns, bow for prayer, & go home. Now...I feel the Word of God. I hear it in songs & sermons. Even in people just talking in public. There has not been a time recently where hearing something from God has not literally taken my breath away & brought sweet tears to my eyes. He speaks to me constantly! I wish I could help people feel what I feel when this happens. It is God touching my soul & letting me feel His presence. What a blessing that is!! He broke me to give me this gift! The gift to feel him everywhere!

Marcus is really doing good! He is using his prosthetic more & more. His right arm is recovering also!! He is able to turn it to almost a full palm up position! That is so exciting to me for him!! He has also tried accupuncture to manage his various pains. It gave him a lot of energy & helped in a few areas where he would hurt. Also, his pain management dr is doing sciatic nerve block injections every 2 weeks. He just had his second this past Friday. It doesn't completely get rid of the pain, but it does numb some of it for a bit. He has asked the dr to get him off a pain patch he is on. With it being an opioid the dr will have to put him on an opioid pill to wean him off these. Stopping cold turkey could put him in the hospital. So this is going to take some time, but it will be worth it!

He has his good days & bad days. I can't imagine the feelings he goes through daily. He stays pretty busy to fight off these feelings. He gets up & goes to work at the depot. Tuesdays & Thursdays he leaves work early to go to therapy. The rest of the time he is diagnosing vehicles or planning out what he is going to need for his new race car!! 😊 He has always been a very hard worker. I am so thankful to see this isn't slowing him down the way it could. Looking at him daily, reminds me to not give up, stop whining, work hard whether I want to or not, & go for my dreams because tomorrow is not promised nor guaranteed. I hope you all can take these things from his journey as well!! When it seems so much is lost, know there is something even better just around the corner!! Let God show you what He has in store for you!!

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend & have a great week!! We love you all & pray for you all!! God bless!!

What Pain Management Dr. Is he using???

Continued Prayers

Girl, you wrote a lot for someone thinking she had nothing to say!! Amazing how the words flow one you begin to write. It is a wonderful blessing to know you two and your families can celebrate the "boring, and mundane " days.

The fact so many people see these post and care only show part of what amazing people you are. Christian is lucky to have Marcus as a friend and a true one. Even your kids and how respectful and helpful they are show what truly good people you are. Praying GOD continues to watch over all of you and help the pain and healing.

What a blessing it is to read your posts and hear how God is working in all your lives on this journey! May God continue to heal you physically, mentally and emotionally and draw you all closer to Him! God bless you all! Big hugs and love to you all!

Great to get to see his progress firsthand last week.. keep on keeping on, bud!

Thank you so much for the update! Marcus is so right,,, there is someone out there who just needs to hear from you guys ,, and know you are doing so well and making it day by day! β€οΈπŸ™ŒπŸ€—πŸ™

I am so glad you shared.

I just had someone on Friday, while I was getting lunch at the Blossom Festival food court in Magnolia, ask me about y’all and she told me she’s been missing updates. 😍. This is not the testimony we would choose, but it’s the one God has allowed to reach others and in turn blesses us with the many who follow in this journey and pray for Marcus and our families!

Thanks for the update! God is using you and your family in ways you never imagined he could and in ways you may never know. -Michele

Y'all have been such a blessing to so many who may never meet you!! It is so good to hear how he is doing! I pray for y'all constantly!!

We were asking Cindy about y’all on Friday.

Continued prayers for Marcus n his family

We will continue to pray for you and your family

Praying for you all. God bless you always.
