Nathaniel is having surgery on his leg tomorrow to lengthen his tendon and reduce some of the contractures.
It seems as if we have come to the end of physical therapy for a bit and now need surgical intervention to help aid him in learning to walk.
Although its a relatively simple procedure, the policy is to be admitted to the hospital the night before and the night after surgery. I will be staying with Nathaniel in a private ward so at least we can be together. He’s had multiple rounds of anesthesia since he’s been home with us and is one of those kids that ALWAYS cries when he wakes up, poor baby.
Even though I am a nurse it’s always hard when it’s YOUR kid having surgery. Sometimes I think I know too much. If I can help it, I try not to tell the staff I’m a nurse too but it inevitably comes out.
We would appreciate prayer for the surgery and recovery time. We will update as able!
