These gruesome pictures are actually out of sequence, but I wanted to post them here for posterity. we are all praying that this will be the last surgery Andrew has to have on his leg. The rod in his upper leg was taken out above his knee and the plate and screws were put on the bone on the side. I am a squeamish person and just writing that made me feel ookie. I can only say that Andrew came through the surgery and seemed to be feeling better faster than he did after the doctors worked on his lower leg in February.
It has been a year and a half since Andrew was able to walk on his own. He gets grouchy and angry. I get irritated at him for doing that, but looking at these pictures, I think I may get more of an understanding of what he has been dealing with. I know that the pain has been a constant, and I pray that it will be gone soon and he will be walking again.
