Had surgery today and again they could only clean the wound. Too much infection and swelling to close it up. They will try again on Wed. They cannot send Ferris home with a wound vac due to his diabetes. Hopefully on Wed they can use a “bone solution” to attempt a mock bone graft without having to use bone from his hip. If in 6 to 12 weeks, this mock solution is ineffective, they will have to take bone from the hip. A skin graft to close his leg Wed is also being discussed.
The X-ray did reveal a chip in his shoulder as well but not much can be done about that.
There was some question this weekend as to whether or not Ferris was having a pulmonarry ambulism (sp?). That is still an unresolved question but it SEEMS he does not at this point. We were very concerned about that possibility but so far all the results are still pending.
Landen was taken to the hospital today to have a blood draw as the lab was unsuccesful. The new med he is on is helping him to wake up a little more so that has been nice. Nothing about his situation has changed much over the course of the week.
While Ferris was in one hospital, and Landen getting blood drawn at another with his nurse, Susie gets a call from Logan’s school nurse. He was injured at school and possibly has a fractured or dislocated shoulder. I know….absolutely positively unbelievable. Susie is sitting in an ER waiting XRay results for Logan as I type this.
Ryan and Jacob are with me and all is going well. Having four boys though is just a bit of craziness
