Tiny Arms & Turtle Casts

March 31, 2018

We didn’t receive the news we were hoping for yesterday morning.  Follow-up x-rays showed that Haven’s fracture wasn’t healing properly.  Displacement had increased.  Cast was removed, and replaced with a splint.

We were admitted into Riley last night for surgery first thing this morning.

We’re very thankful for Riley, but growing weary of being there. Last night was our 7th trip this month (thanks to our two littlest goobers), with 4 more visits on the horizon for next month. Ready to be done with that place for awhile.

Thankfully, surgery went really well, and we arrived back home later this afternoon. Haven now has some new hardware/pins in his arm, and the COOLEST Ninja Turtle cast ever, thanks to his buddy who is a nurse at Riley!  (Thanks, Charity!)  Ferdinand the bull also got to come home with a matching cast.  How cute is that?!?

Recovery took longer than expected.  He’s still groggy, sore, and a bit nauseous.  But, other than that, he’s in good shape.  His smile is shining again, and he thanks you all for your love and prayers!
