Marcus Brookes Benefit Shootout

Updates from the Brookes

Well, the doctor confirmed the bones are still broken. She told him to continue to use the bone stimulator he has and to continue to take the vitamin d & calcium. We are probably going to contact another orthopedic specialist just for a second opinion. The picture of his arm is from the side so you can't see that the curvature of the ulna which looks like it is curved over touching the radial. She feels like the femur (leg) is forming new bone like it should. She confirmed they pressed the bone back together and placed the pins and plate on it along with a bone graft. We just pray his body continues to heal. We pray you all have a great evening! God bless! ❤️❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Prayers for continued healing. Idk y’all personally but have followed y’all’s story. 2nd opinions are always a good thing. I’ll give you two instances why. 1st one.. Many years ago I had a cousin in a bad accident. Broke her wrist. She had surgery in Dallas. Many months went by and she was still having problems and had not healed. She sought another opinion and the plate the previous Dr. had put in her wrist was in backwards. Had to have another surgery to fix it. 2nd instance. I have a nephew who had an accident on a crotch rocket. Lost his leg from knee down and did lots of damage to his elbow. Surgery and rehab and many Dr. Trips back and forth still was not healing. His Dad finally said enough was enough. Took him to another Dr. Elbow was a mess . New Dr. did surgery. Think the bone crumbled and all kinds of stuff happened when he went in to try and repair the damages the other Ortho Dr. had done.. He got his elbow back together with plates and screws tho. So yes I think a second opinion would be a good thing. Y’all have lots of people praying for you. Keep the faith. 🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️

Praying for healing.

Praying for complete recovery soon

Prayers!

Awesome,, thanks for sharing!!❤️❤️

Amazing! In a blink of an eye life can change. Wonderful job Emily!

Great job, Emily! I thank all of you for sharing this journey with the rest of us, for getting the message out about the dangers of distracted driving, and for praising God as you’re accepting your new normal. May God continue to pour His blessings upon you all! Love and hugs!

Powerful! Great job and effects.

Wow!! This gave me chills! Great job, Emily!

Chills! Chills from my head to my toes. Video is very good and it will certainly be a reminder not to look down for older than teen drivers (like me!), also!

This is awesome!!

Good job, Emily!

Awesome ….

Great job!

Good job young lady!

😍Well the holidays are over! 🙌🏼 I love Christmas and family time, but man it wears you out! He was released just before Christmas to bear weight on all of his extremities. However, his leg didn't fit anymore so he has had to wait to be able to really get up. He went to Shreveport today and got his new socket! Now it's back to work on getting strong again. After all he has been in the chair since October 31! He started therapy again yesterday. He said he is very weak in his hips mostly. So he is going to work on getting that back and getting even stronger. We have a busy year ahead of us! No time for sitting! 😊
I am in the process of planning a family vacation for us with the kids. I don't want to give any details as to what it will be yet, but I promise it's going to be awesome and a lot of walking! 😳😊
Also.....his car is in Port Allen, Louisiana right now. Mr. Brian "Madman" Jeffery is working his magic on it installing the cage and other things that have to get done before he can start putting the engine and other mechanical parts together. As soon as he gets it back they are getting busy! He is expecting to be racing this year!! 😲 How exciting!! I can't wait to see him behind the wheel again!
So, as you can see we have a lot of work ahead of us. All this on top of working full time and enjoying the time we have free to get out and take day trips or just hang out with friends and family. It's time to live!! We spent last year healing his body as much as we could. Now we are no where close to being at our new normal. We still have a long way to go. But...we have to work more on our hearts and souls. We have to find a way to clear our heads and appreciate all the time we can that we are given to spend with each other. Yes, we have to work, but we have limited time to enjoy this life.
We hope you all are doing well!! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!! I will update more as we have more news. I'm sorry they have been sooo few lately. We just track along each day moving forward. We thank you for still caring and loving and praying for us. Please continue. We continue to pray for each of you. Please, if you ever have a prayer request, feel like you need someone to just stop and pray for you, don't hesitate to message us. Prayer works and knowing people love you enough to pray for us is so uplifting! We would love to be able to do that for any one of you. Even if you don't believe, we are here for any one of you. We love you all! Have a great night and wonderful FRIDAY!! God bless!!❤️❤️

Marcus had a follow up appointment today with orthopedics. We got there at 10am for a 10:30am appointment. Sat in the waiting area for about 30 minutes until they called him back to check him in. They checked his blood pressure, which was good, and went over his meds then sent him to radiology. They took X-rays of his arm and and left leg. We then went back to the waiting area for ortho to wait another 45 plus minutes. They called him back to a room. We sat there and waited long enough for us both to almost get a nap...(about 45 minutes). The nurse practitioner came in and checked him out and asked if he was having any unusual pain...and out she went....and we waited another probably 20 minutes (I may not be exact on all these times). Then the old school Italian doctor-that-does-not-want-to-have-to-deal-with-my-mom-anymore-so-he-just-does-what-she-wants 😂 came in. (Ahem Cindy Ruth Groce) Annnndddd told Marcus he is free to stand on his leg and use his arm as much as he can tolerate!! Woohoo!! It's been a month since his surgery. Him being stuck in a chair...again! Now he has to get his strength back. He seems to have lost a lot of strength in all of his extremities. We are going to get to work building this back up! As hard as he is willing to work it should not take long!

More good news....he got the word to take his new car to the best chassis guy around!! Brian Madman Jeffery!! They dropped it off yesterday!! Also, he has been in contact with Brian Tooley regarding his engine! He has made some decisions and they are helping him put together the best combination for what he is wanting!! I think we are all pretty excited for this to get going!! I can't wait to see him rolling down the track again!!

Also, our oldest child, Destiny Brookes, received her Business Administration Degree today!!! We are so VERY proud of her! She has worked so hard to get here!! We love you!!

When Christmas coming up, it is getting pretty busy! I'm going to try to update as much as possible as he progresses!! We hope you all have a great Friday and an even better weekend!! We love you all!! God bless!!

Thank you for the updates. And you know I’m here if you need anything

As always I’m happy to see a good report about Marcus! I’ve thought a lot about how strong he is and how he can handle the pain that I know at times is pretty bad,,, I’ve been down the entire month of November with hernia and gall bladder surgery,, was in the Er 3x in a week ,once with pneumonia,once with bile leaking around my liver,, that was absolutely the worst pain I have ever endured! So I know Marcus is very strong to have made it thru what he has,, and I know that was thru the grace of God❤️

Great news!

Awesome!!!

Hows the stimulator working out?
