Surgery Scheduled

Back in March I believe, I took Whitnee up to Shriner's for her 6 month visit. As we talked with the Dr. we were informed that Whitnee would need both her Achilles Tendons stretched. We have tried to prolong this procedure for as long as we can do to the recovery time and even the risk we take in intubating Whitnee again. We even contacted Dr. Swoboda hoping she would discourage it. But she was in support of doing it asap, so we can get Whitnee standing in her stander again for an hour. They told me that it would be this summer, we were thinking early summer.

I actually got the phone call today informing us that Friday Whitnee is scheduled for surgery. We will have a 3 day stay in the PICU and from what I am told she will be casted from just below the knee down to her toes for 6 weeks :( From then on I don't know what will happen.

So we ask that you remember her in your prayers that her surgery will go well with no complications (breathing etc....) and that her recovery will go well too.

Thanks for all your support. I will up date the blog on her progress soon.
