Spine Surgery Update
First of all, thank you all for praying! Mr. Boy was in surgery for a little over three hours. The surgeon said everything went well, but his spinal cord goes further down his back than a human's cord is supposed to go, so the incision had to be a lot longer than he expected. They are doing an ok job of controlling his pain, but he may have a few rough days ahead. We just need to make sure the wound doesn't get infected, and Mr. Boy should heal up just fine. He's got to lie flat for 3 days and then we can go home after that, once he can sit up without severe pain and as long as there is no spinal fluid leakage or infection. Our little man is so strong and we are so proud of him! The Lord has been holding us up through the love we have been feeling from all of you.
