Good Morning. I hope your morning is off to a great 'warm' start!
Today I'll be a 'off the grid'. I am at the hospital with my grandson.
He had surgery last June. Some of you might remember . . .
He was a trooper. See the blue wrap on his arm. He tickled us he wanted to take it home.
He loved it when Pa visited. The hospital stay was a little rough.
He was in a lot of pain.
Day two at home. He isn't a really happy camper. He has a cast around his waist and all the way down his leg.
He had the cast for 8 weeks. After about 4 weeks he learned to crawl out of bed and around the house. He was a hoot!
He got lots and lots of good wishes. And silly toys and things to keep him busy. It's hard to stay in bed for 8 weeks when your 7.
The blue/green crochet blanket was a prayer shawl their church brought to our daughter on surgery day. She was Blessed.
But he finally got the cast off and he's been back to normal after a few months in a wheelchair. Well till December actually.
He's had a couple of months of normal activity.
And now. Well. It's back to surgery again. In June they repaired
his growth plate. There was damage due to an injury. They had to put pins in to hold the bones together.
Tomorrow they will remove the pins. It'll be a quick procedure.
But, more convalescents. He'll be back in the wheelchair for a couple of weeks and then the walker again.
So. dear friends. Can I ask you to say a pray for the little guy?
He needs strength and stamina. And he needs to be still. Which is hard to do!
I'll be at the hospital for the day. Hopefully I'l be home by 5:00 if all goes well.
