About 14 hours post op and Keegan is doing remarkably well. I am very impressed with his composure and maturity, even through the pain.
He got a little more than he bargained for on his left leg. They had a lot of trouble removing the pins and had to cut a larger size hole to get the pin out resulting in a bone graft. They are treating it like a bone fracture. This of course is the same leg that he had the plate out by his knee, so most of his pain radiates from his left leg. They put both of his feet in boots that are like air casts. He will have to wear the left one for a full 6 weeks. The right one will come off after 2-3 weeks.
He had a decent night with great sleep and only about three late night visits from his super sweet nurse.
He has had about 4-5 pitchers of ice chips. He is fully enjoying ice relentlessly. He also ate a great meal before sleep last night.
His biggest hurdle will be to see if he can stand and walk. His Doctor was a little worried that he would not be able to walk for a while. Also returning to school might be a challenge as he really does not want a wheel chair and many of his classes are on opposite ends of the building.
Tonight at approximately midnight I will be posting my bead soup reveal. I am super excited to see what everyone has created.
I love the old vintage flower element that I mixed in with some vintage beads and swirls of wire. This vintage looks brings me such happiness.
I hope you have a happy Friday.
Talk to ya later! Kris
