More Hurdles To Jump!
This is how the morning started. I woke Bryson up and took him potty, putting him back on the bed to get him dressed. He climbs back under the covers, precedes to tell me I am naughty for waking him up and that he was tired and wanted to sleep.
On the way to the hospital, he kept confirming no more hospital and no more casts to which I confirmed. YIKES!!! I should have known better!
Yes, Bryson is back in a cast on his right leg. His foot is turning, which is what I have suspected from week one of being out of the casts. His left foot is turning too, but the doctor feels it can be corrected in one casting or during the body cast after the hip surgery.
Yes, I did say hip surgery. This doctor was even more encouraging about operating. He felt Bryson's hips have very good movement. He said if there was not enough movement he would never recommend surgery on an older child.
He also feels that it would be best for Bryson and our family to have the surgery in Sacramento. He anticipates him being in a body cast for 6-8 weeks barring no complications. So our prayers are now that the doctor on Thursday agrees with our last two doctors. He is one of the very best and it would be the best scenario for Mr. B.
However, with all that said the hips can not be corrected until the feet are in the right position. We will be making weekly trips to St Louis now to get his feet recasted. Yes, this makes me sick to my stomach when my gut told me months ago to come out here. Yes, I will let it go! Yes, we will just do what is best for Bryson.
My sweet resilient boy!
