Upcoming Surgical Procedures

This is a picture taken this Spring where Caren's right shoulder droop can be seen.  It is far more pronounced now, and compromising spinal alignment.  The shattered scapula will be treated with double plates/modified Judet approach.

Also, the ribs have never healed, and they will be treated with Matrix rib.(The illustrations
above are not of Caren.)  The surgery, at minimum, will be four hours, on a special table that allows maximum access to the scapula.

Depending on pain management, Caren will be in the hospital from several days, to several weeks before coming home.  At home, it will be like starting all over again with meds, pain management, lots of sleep, brain fog - hopefully toward healing this time.

  Our kids are profoundly affected.  We all covet your continued prayers and support.

Thank you!

    You are always in our prayers. Praying for guidance of the doctors hands and stamina to perform what is necessary to complete the surgery. Hugs and love sent your way.
