Update on Kaleb's Surgery!!!!



Well, went to see Dr. Gardner in Orthopedics today to get Kaleb's arm x-rayed and he's definitely having surgery on Friday, Sept. 12th. He said that both bones are 99% healed and that one looks like its never been broken, but he says that the other rod looks like it has rotated abit in the bone and that there's still a hairline crack in it, but that it's nothing to worry about.....I sure hope not!!!!
It's suppose to be a fairly quick procedure to pull both rods out...they will just go back in through the original incisions and pull both rods back out. Unfortunately, he will have to wear the hard brace for atleast another month after surgery, for extra protection. But the doctor did say that Kaleb is fine to ride his bike and scooter....okay, what????
Please keep Kaleb in your thoughts and prayers.
This is Kaleb the day after he broke his arm, April 16th....its been along 5 months!!!!!
***NEW DARE CHALLENGE is up over at AscrappinFriendsy"....its a scary one!!!!***
Come on over and check it out:
With all of the craziness with Hurricanes and tropical Storms lately, it got me wondering about things that scare us. What is something that scares you? I know that everyone has something that they are frightened of…..spiders, snakes, storms, etc. My challenge to you this week is to scrap about a fear that you have, whether it be insects, thunder storms or even a scary dream that you’ve had. Tell us ALL about it!!!!!
