Surgery has been scheduled for July 9th. Although it is a bummer that Little Man needs surgery, we really are seeing God’s provision in how all the details are falling in to place. His team of doctors in the States were able to review all of the information we sent them from here and they have concluded that there is a 90% chance that surgery will be needed. So we are getting ready.
The surgeon “happened” to have a slot for the surgery the morning after our already scheduled appointment so they switched it to a pre-op appointment and surgery will happen the next morning. Provision for sure!
The procedure is routine in the States – a bone reconstruction in his limb or in the words of our family “the doctors are going to fix the booboo in Little Man’s stub so that he can wear his prosthetic again!” That is what matters. It is killing our little guy not to be able to wear his leg. He likes to be on the move! I am afraid the frustration of immobility will be a theme for the next month if not more, but in the end he should be more comfortable than ever.
Our summer plans really are on hold while we seek the best care for Little Man. We had hoped to do a lot of visiting and speaking – now we might be making a lot of phone calls. We hope that you all will understand our lack of visits this time around as we focus on getting our little guy up and running again.
We for sure will be keeping you posted on how he is doing and how the process goes. I would love to hear any suggestions on how to entertain an active four year old while in the hospital!
