Praise God it has been a long day-up since 2am drove to Fort Worth-we had to be here by 7am. We got here and Brandon was pretty scared about his surgery but he was such brave boy-he only cried for about 5 minutes before they wheeled him into surgery. It went really long-they told us they thought about 3 hours-it ended up being about a little over 5 but PRAISE GOD-she was able to do the plate and screw in his hip (the intermediate size so we will get to grow a little more with it before we have to have it out.) That is a huge praise-no cast either and that is a huge praise as well. He has a large incision in his thigh and it is bleeding through the bandage a little-he also has some tubes and a pain pump ball on his side that will last for three days that is taking in some blood and fluid-pray for me that I would know how much is too much and if it is starting to get infected I would know when and what to do. They tried to get him up and it really hurt him-made him bleed a little too so the mama in me freaked out-but they wanted to see what he could do-we are still sitting in the hospital room waiting to see if we will be staying or not. Pray they make the right choice and so do we-I don't want to make a 3 hour trip with him in pain-just not sure it will be better tomorrow-it is just going to take time-they had to pull back the muscle to get to the area and get out the cysts and fill it with the bone graph marrow and put in the plate and screws. He will be very sore and for days-it hurts my heart-but when he is sitting or laying still he seems really well just when he is moving he is really hurting.
Thank you so much for keeping him in your prayers. Just keep praying.
Love each of you-so thankful for each of you and your loving hearts!
God is so good!!! Praising Him for His faithfulness.
