This week’s activities have just ratcheted up a notch. I got a call today from the orthopedic surgeon’s office. They can fit Samantha in for surgery on Friday. (https://embracingtherollercoaster.wordpress.com/2013/07/11/5-random-things for a reminder of the gory details!) Samantha wants to have this surgery, and she has been anxious to get it done before she leaves for school. We had pretty much resigned ourselves to the fact that it wasn’t going to happen.
Actually, I think the timing is good. She will be in a bulky cast for about 10 days and then a standard cast for a month. Not sure when she will be able to come home to get it removed, but we will figure it out. I am very thankful that she won’t have to wait until Christmas.
Dave goes in for his SirSpheres treatment Thursday morning. Should be interesting at our house for a few days while Dave and Sam recover. If you don’t hear from me you’ll know why! : )
