Please pray for my 9 year old grandaughter Madie. 9/27/2010, She just got out of surgery in TX. She has had VEPTAR rods in her back since 2 years old and numerous surgeries. 2 weeks ago the large rod that goes from her neck to the small of her back broke just above the attachment screws at the bottom. She has been in severe pain since it broke and they removed the entire rod today! Please pray for her safety and recovery and especially for her little body to avoid infection (she has suffered recurring infections after her last 3 surgeries).
Please scroll down to see my UPDATE entries: 1. Successful surgery, 2. UPDATE on day 1 post surgery...moved to regular floor, please keep praying.UPDATE Madie went home today 9/29/2010
about 55 hours post surgery! I'm doing a happy dance...praising God!
She is hurting a lot, but she got up and walked to the dinner table with the family...didn't stay long....went back to bed shortly...but I'm totally amazed by this strong little girl. My son gave permission to post his family blog if you'd like to see her.http://blog.rachelrogers.com/home-sweet-home/UPDATE: 10/1/2010 My son just said Madi had a good day, she's doing better today cutting back on the meds more and moving a little less ginglerly
I want to Thank each & every one of you who are praying! THANK YOU ALL
!!!! (I hope it will be ok with you to receive this THANK YOU to all of you who have responded in lieu of individual post for each person) Thanks again!UPDATE: 10/13/2010
Madi is doing very well. I just talked to her via the computer VIDEO link up
just now! She is back in school and will have her staples removed this
next Monday...they are taking her to surgery to do it. The doctor was so
cautious about the aftermath infections she had after last surgery,
that he used staples this time (thinking that her little body is
allergic to the disolving stitches that were used last time.) And he
left the staples in a lot longer than usual, so she has to go to OR to remove
them. But Praise God...no infection so far!!!
