Latest Journal Update
Dear CaringBridge Family,
Steven is scheduled for Tendon Transfer surgery on Thursday morning. If I remember correctly, in my last update Steven was weighing the surgery pros and cons and attempting to figure out the best timing. Well, imagine our surprise when Steven informed us last week that not only had he made the decision to have the surgery, he called and got everything scheduled. He took care of the pre-surgical testing, handled the insurance verification hassle and spoke to his anesthesiologist. He was very proud of his accomplishments! Steven said, "Mom, this is the first surgery that I have had where I actually had a say and handled the process." Very good point! We're so proud of him! This is another big step for Steven. Our prayer is that the surgery is 100% successful and he has a pain free speedy recovery. The surgery is outpatient. He will be in a cast for 3-4 weeks. Once the cast is removed he will spend time in a dynamic splint and will start back to therapy. We're not sure if he will see his OT at Lewis Gale or his hand therapist. Either way he has a relationship with both therapists, which is a big plus! Steven always has a way of putting things into perspective, he could tell that I was a bit overwhelmed at the thought of yet another surgery. He reminded me that after having his head operated on 3 times this surgery should be a breeze! How true! What a guy!
Thanks in advance for your prayers for success and for a much deserved speedy recovery. Steven is counting on being back at Virginia Western on first day of class in late August!
I will update again on Thursday afternoon or evening. Thanks for your ongoing faithful support!
