"This is fun!"

Thursday, August 5, 2010

That's what Jadon told me about three hours after surgery.

No kidding!

Jadon did incredibly well.
We did end up staying in the hospital overnight, but after a few little tears of disappointment, staying overnight ended up being the best thing.

Jadon got all of Dad and Mom's attention for most of the day.
And all of Mom's attention for the night.

Jadon prayed that it wouldn't be too painful.
And guess what?!

The only pain reliever that he has taken is
That's it!
The nurse kept asking him if he was hurting.
"No.  I'm fine," was his response.

Thank you, Lord!

Here's Jadon, before surgery.  He was pretty nervous, but kept busy by reading a TinTin book.

Adam came to see Jadon in the evening.  Jadon was so happy to see his brother.

Such a sweet little guy.
Sweet dreams, my precious son.

The surgeon said that there was plenty of bone from Jadon's hip, but minimal tissue to work with in his mouth.  Please pray that the tissue grows together as it should.  We're ready to be done with surgeries for awhile...

even if they are a lot of fun!

Praising the Lord to see "fun" and "surgery" in the same post! Thank you Lord!

Good job, brave Jadon! I'm so thankful that it's over. Praying that the tissue grows as much as it needs to, and that Jadon heals quickly!

Love and blessings, thanks for the update~

somehow i missed Jadon's surgery notice. so glad that he is healing well. i know our daughter will need bone graph done at some point to, and i heard from someone that had it done years ago that it was the most painful surgery out of all his cl/cp surgeries. i'm glad that Jadon isn't hurting as badly.
