    Default New Son Update

    Well Randy has been in surgery two times, one last week to see what was going on and then one yesterday to cut off what needed to come off. First last week when they got in they found 2 very old stitches and they were really big ones unlike what you would see at the skin level. These were for attaching stuff like the ligaments and what ever. These have been the root of the constant infections so that each time he would get on heavy antibiotics they would think it was gone, but not so since the fibers of the stitches held some deep inside them and would then reinfect his leg.

    after that they left his leg open and just packed and wrapped it until the final surgery yesterday. Oh they also found that his bone bridge (which they had thought was taken out the last time they went in) still in his leg, but it had a crack in that bone plus an exposed nerve that also was giving him a lot of pain at time. So the bridge is gone and they took 3/8" of an inch of leg bone off to get back to good bone and fixed the nerve. Doctor said he mush have gone through a lot of pain at times with both of these problems.

    Well now this Doctor said that after this and it heals he should not have any more trouble and be like a new man. It is snowing up there and he said it is beautiful and wanted to take some pictures. They are supposed to get another foot of snow Friday or Saturday.

    Hopefully this will soon be behind him and us. Thank goodness he got recommended to this Doctor. His attitude is very high right now with anticipation of this long painful road is at an end and now the new him will soon emerge.

    Thanks to everyone's prayers and great thoughts. He and we really appreciate it!

    You are right Stump Hunter, unless someone has been through something near the same type pain they will never know. There is a thing such as bone pain just like there is a thing called nerve pain. Since I have experienced both from my back surgeries I feel for himn knowing he found out what I learned in 1989. Both are things I don't wish on anyone.

    Thanks,

    Amen! My prayers are still with you and your son.

    The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. John 15:7 Jesus says..." ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."
