emily’s surgery


Emily’s surgery on Wednesday went really well.  She will be in bed healing for 3 weeks
and then we’ll go back to the hospital to see how she’s healing, get her fitted for AFO’S and
put 2 new casts on her. Emily will wear the casts for another 2 weeks while we wait for the
AFO’s to be ready, and then intense physical therapy will begin to re-learn how to walk.


It’s been a pretty rough few days with an unexpected trip to the ER and trying to figure
out how to care for Emily.  I’m so very thankful to have such a wonderful and supportive
husband.  I don’t know what I would do without him.  I’m also thankful for Shriner’s
Hospital, where Emily received the best care possible.  They’ve shown our whole family
such love and kindness.  Shriner’s is truly a unique and special hospital and we are
so grateful for their care.
