IT'S FRIDAY JAN.23 2009. WE ARE AT THE HOSPITAL AT 7:00 A.M. WE HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE SAME PROGRESSIONS AS USUAL. FIRST WE GO IN AND THEY COME AND TAKE BLOOD. THEN THEY WAIT ABOUT 30 MINUTES AND GIVE DEVIN HER GOOFY JUICE. THEY GIVE THAT ABOUT 30 MINUTES TO TAKE AFFECT AND TAKE HER BACK TO THE OR ROOM. AFTER THEY FINISH THEY BRING HER BACK TO THE RECOVERY ROOM AND THEN WE COME IN TO CONSOLE HER. NOW THE WHOLE PURPOSE OF THIS VISIT IS TO REMOVE THE STEEL PINS THEY PLACED THROUGH HER KNEE CAPS TO HELP HOLD THE KNEE'S AND TIBIA'S IN PLACE WITH NO MOVEMENT. WE WERE LUCKY ENOUGH AGAIN TO GET THE NURSE TO TAKE A COUPLE OF PHOTO'S OF HER LEG'S WITH NO CAST ON. NOW THE AMAZING THING IN THESE PICTURES IS MY DAUGHTERS LEGS ARE IN A NORMAL POSITION, THE CRAPPY THING IS SHE LOOKS LIKE FRANKENSTEIN WITH ALL OF THE SCAR'S AND GAPING HOLE IN HER RIGHT KNEE. I AM NOT GONNA LABEL EACH SET OF PICTURES, BUT I DID PUT THEM IN ORDER OF MY DESCRIPTION EARLIER.

I didnt post anything from Thanksgiving it was pretty uneventful..But Christmas was a lot of fun. Devin got to enjoy her first bonfire and open her first gifts. Now as far as her treatment well she is on week 10 of a cast she was only suppose to wear for 4 weeks and MAN does it STINK!!!! We weresuppose to get it off the 6th but unfortuneatly she was congested and they wont put you under at her age with any kind of breathing issues. WE have an appointment for th 23rd and pray she stays well until then. They will remove her cast and take out her pins in her knee's, reposition her knees and cast her one last time for 6 weeks. Please as we all know prayer is power, please keep her in your prayers for no illness until after the 23rd. Lol, Not that i want her to be sick but it would be great if she could hold off until we get that cast changed. At any rate here are some pic's from christmas.
