Wow – the outpouring of support has been amazing. Thank you so much! I feel incredibly grateful to have so many friends wishing my family well during this very stressful week.
My son is out of surgery.
I've been incredibly stressed out – can you tell?!
Dr. Schobert (aka: Dr. BigWig - my shoulder doc) is an amazing surgeon and I can't tell you how thankful I am that he was able to take care of PR … and so quickly, also.
Sometimes it pays to have friends in high places.
The doctor feels the surgery went well. PR now has a nice chunk of metal in his ankle holding together the three broken bones. It may (or may not) have to be removed at a later date.
The doc filled PR's ankle with lots of numbing drugs which should last him through the afternoon. (He's asleep right now.) Tonight will probably be a very different story, but we've got Vicodin on hand and ready.
Now we just pray that he heals correctly, quickly, and without too much pain.
Thank you EVERYONE for being there for us!
