Tomorrow begins a new adventure for our family.
At 7:30am, Kaden is scheduled for surgery to begin the process
of repairing his left hip, leg & knee.
When he was born, his hip was not in it's socket
and he also had some problems with his knee.
He is a very determined & tough young man
and was able to learn to walk in spite of his difficulties!
As Steve mentioned in a previous post,
we have an amazing orthopedic surgeon,
that the Lord led us to just over 6 years ago,
who will be able to improve Kaden's condition by leaps and bounds!
The surgery with Dr. L and his team will take around 4 1/2 hours.
They will be rebuilding his hip socket,
tightening up all the muscles and ligaments around his hip to stabilize the joint,
resetting his femur so that his foot points forward,
and doing a little work on the knee to help it bend properly.
There will most likely be more knee surgery in the future,
but this surgery should correct his hip problems.
He will be in the hospital for 3-5 days,
and will be in a partial body cast (spica cast) for 3 to 4-1/2 months.
We would greatly appreciate your prayers for our little guy
and the surgery team!
We will try to update as we can.
