Knee Update....

Today my son and I saw an orthopedic specialist. He is definitely going to need major surgery. He is going to have the bone cut where it attaches to his patella tendon have it reattached to hold the knee cap in place, and possibly a tendon from his leg attached where the ligament is damaged. He has some cartilage missing, and they may have to do a graft to stimulate new growth. They honestly won't know everything until they get into his knee and check it out. He was supposed to start EMT school on Tuesday...he wants to be a fireman.....but the Dr. said his recovery will be a 6-12 month rehab. So, we are cancelling school, and focusing on the surgery and recovery. He is really bummed, but excited to possibly have a new strong knee. Say a prayer for him if you would!!!

Have a lovely day.

Oh Valerie,
I am so sorry to hear about the surgery and having to cancel on school. I will pray that the Lord brings peace to him, and your family through this time.
Hugs to all,
