It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged, we went to Seattle and had surgery on Jackson’s legs on November 14, 2011. They ended up doing a release on both hips and both knees and an osteotomy on both knees and his left hip. In the weeks leading up to surgery and during the surgery, many were praying over us and for us. I have to tell you those prayers were definately felt…this was the first time I have ever felt such an overwhelming peace about sending my kid back for a procedure! The whole morning we felt God’s hands on us…from the fact that the OR nurse’s name was Deborah (Jon’s mom’s name – she passed away 3 years ago-and we’ve always felt that she guides us thru this journey in so many ways) to the peace we had about sending him backI didn’t even cry, when I left the OR! We spent 3 days in the hospital and 2 weeks in Seattle. By the 3rd day after surgery, Jackson was back to ROLLINGeven though we were told, he probably wouldn’t be able to! Praise God!
We have been home since Thanksgiving Day and Jackson continues to prove that he’s one tough cookie! He has been able to bear weight on his feet for a while now and 2 weeks ago, he began “walking” with me supporting his butt! We are doing great and are ready to see what 2012 holds!
Tomorrow we leave for Seattle and will get the casts taken off on Tuesday at 12:40 pm Pacific timeJackson is a little nervous, so please pray for courage! Can’t wait to see those beautiful legs and what he does to shock the medical team next! We have been asked twice by the PA, if we are sure he has AMC-that we are sure of, we are just not sure of the “form”-no matter what, we still serve an AWESOME GOD, who is STILL CAPABLE OF MIRACLES! We are blessed we were choosen to be his parents! Until next time…..
