I still don't know how we got through that month, how Mr Boy came out of the hospital more outgoing than before, or how Mr Boy started walking again, only days after getting the external fixator bars unscrewed from his pelvic bones. I also never thought the wound that formed as his skin started sloughing off, would ever heal. But months later, with diligent care and dressings, the wound finally healed and Mr Boy's quality of life drastically improved.
I could never thank our skilled surgeons enough. I could never show our nurses just how much we appreciated them. I could never praise the Lord enough for keeping Mr Boy safe and for keeping David and me sane through it all. There were definitely moments when all I wanted to do was run screaming through the halls. I can't imagine how much more Mr Boy wanted to do that!
