Tracy Dartt Update! 8/28

     Tracy Dartt continues his recovery at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville with wife, Sharon, staying by his side day and night. Over the last couple of days they have given him multiple platelet and plasma treatments, and they've given him two units of blood so far - all in an effort to get his blood pressure normalized, as it was very low in the first 24 hours of recovery. It does seem to be readily improving.
     Doctors found fairly early on in Tracy's recovery that he was fighting an infection, so they started him immediately on a 7-day regimen of antibiotics. We were glad to hear that blood tests showed NO infection in his bloodstream. 
     During the past 2 & 1/2 days, Tracy has also had a fever, ranging from mild to moderately high, but that also is improving presently. He hasn't been walking yet, as he is still on a lot of pain meds & is week. His appetite has been getting better & he's been able to sit up in a chair some. 
     Tracy and Sharon are both very pleased with the staff at Vanderbilt & thankful to see so many young people there involved with the medical programs at Vanderbilt University who are so committed to doing what it takes to take care of patients in an excellent and gracious manner. 
     Thanks for continuing to pray for Tracy's recovery. It's looking at this point like Tracy's hospital/therapy rehab stay will continue for at least another 10-12 days. 

     This week has been a challenging one for Tracy. Doctors had hoped to transfer him to a physical therapy rehab facility on Monday the 25th, but the day before began a multi-day bout of pretty extreme nausea for him. Treatment to relieve the nausea became necessary early in the week, with doctors placing a tube through Tracy's nose to pump out an excess of bile. 

     In the meantime, doctors have been happy with Tracy's overall progress… his creatinine levels had elevated, but have now receded back to pre-surgery levels, which is good. Tracy's been comfortable enough to allow for downgrading of his pain meds - now just being treated exclusively with Tylenol. His blood pressure has remained normalized through the week and his labs are good. 

     Yesterday was Tracy's first day to get out and walk in the hall, and this morning he started eating well once again. Sharon and Tracy are both encouraged at all the progress and are looking forward to home… BUT before that happens, they are still looking at 10-14 days of Tracy remaining in a physical therapy rehab facility, starting today. Right now they are waiting for word of when to expect an ambulance ride over to the facility - expecting for it to be sometime this evening.

     We appreciate your continued prayers!


Prayer Request From Tracy !!! 8/13

     Thanks to so many who are and who have been praying for us. I am scheduled for spinal surgery on Tuesday, August 19th at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. They will be repairing a fractured lumbar vertebrae and bulging disk, using titanium rods and screws.

      I will be in a back brace for at least 6 weeks. The doctor says at least 12 to 16 weeks before I’m ready to travel again. Our goal is to be on the road with the boys for The Dartts' December tour (Lord willing). 
      Thanks, again, to our Prayer Warriors, and to those who have sent financial gifts. May God multiply them back to you!


THE DARTTS - "Get Up And Get Your Shoes On"

     In a victorious return to the recording studio after a bit of a dry spell, The Dartts have re-awakened to release their "Get Up And Get Your Shoes On" album - a sparkling collection of brand new, freshly written songs. With more than 40 years of amazing song-writing behind him, Tracy Dartt has done it again as he, along with his wife, Sharon Dartt, son, Stone Dartt, and fellow group member, BJ Speer have joined together to bring a wonderful new collage of spiritually impacting messages to the world of Gospel Music. From the witty ramblings of the opening track, "You Gotta Serve The Lord," to the happy challenge of the title song, "Get Up And Get Your Shoes On," to the prayerful strains of the closing number, "The Lord Bless Thee," this album is sure to keep you engaged and entertained. You'll find comfort in the words of "I Am With You Always" and reminisce as you enjoy the picturesque storyline of "The Little Grey House With The Clothesline". You might find your toe tapping on "Dusty Road," which marks the first time The Dartts have recorded a BJ Speer composition, and it's the inspiration for the title of BJ's latest biographical book, "Dusty Road," which shares the challenges of losing his Dad to Alzheimer's disease. Let your spirit soar to the worshipful tunes, "Lord Bid Me Come To Thee" and "The Name Above Every Name." Three staples of any new project by The Dartts are here - A cowboy song, "Before Sundown," A humorous song, "Sent And Went" (kinda sounds like Dr. Seuss meets Gilbert and Sullivan), and a southern gospel song, "Row Your Boat." There's no denying the strong convicting impact of thoughtful tunes, "With Him" and "The Rest Of Your Life." Topped off by a refreshing variety of musical styles, "Get Up And Get Your Shoes On" is sure to become a new favorite album for many.
