This video, which was recorded last night, may seem silly but its message is heartfelt. Nicks eight plate removal surgery went well. He had his last dose of pain meds Saturday night before bed. Nick is free of metal, except for his braces and even those will come off in less than a month. He’s moving around tentatively but feeling well.
Nick was really calm before surgery and woke up calm. Hopefully we will be back in Baltimore soon for a replacement brace for the trial. Nick said it was helping and once it cracked he said the “push off” it gave him was gone. Good news really.
If I don’t write again, happy holidays and happy new year to all our readers and followers. It is a blessing to have Nicholas in your thoughts and prayers. It is a blessing to know writing this blog has helped others. For the new families, as always, please be encouraged! 13 surgeries down and Nick doesn’t feel like he has had a surgery filled life. He feels grateful! He thanked everyone he could on Friday, even me. “Thank you for bringing me mom”. As if I would have had it any other way.
