We had been counting down and looking forward to Jordan’s big day of having his cast removed. Neither Randy nor I have ever had a cast or experienced seeing one removed so we were interested to see how Jordan’s little body would be set free. Will, an orthopedic tech, came in and explained how the machine would work as it would cut the cast but not his skin.
After Jordan’s hip and ankle surgery, he seemed to be doing well and was transported to the 5600 unit. The first night was difficult. He woke up with pain in his hip and under his upper right arm, which we later contributed to his spica cast pushing on his ribs.
The anticipated day of Jordan’s surgery finally came. Randy and I could only pray that God would help lessen our anxiety as we entered the world of a major surgery followed by an intense recovery.
