Caden’s back surgery has been rescheduled for this coming Thursday, September 22, 2011. This will be an adjustment of the VEPTR rods were placed in Caden’s back during a surgery performed a year ago next week to treat scoliosis . The surgery this week is a major surgery performed in the MUSC adult hospital 4th floor main operating room area. Caden will likely spend at least 2-3 nights inpatient in the MUSC Children’s Hospital recovering from this surgery.
Caden saw his pulmonary doctor late last week and was cleared of the pneumonia that postponed this surgery from happening at the end of August. The pulmonologist has cleared Caden to have orthopedics surgery this week. We will not know the exact time of the surgery until sometime Wednesday. We expect to be the first case on Thursday morning. They normally like to get Caden in early.
Please pray for Caden to have rapid healing and protection from infections and illness. I’ll be updating this blog regularly during Caden’s hospitalization.
