1.5 CM!!!! Three Weeks Post Op Update

2015041395134945There it is!I It truly amazes me. The PRECICE rod looks massive in Nick’s femur. This is the first I have seen of it. Steven told Chris he was not allowed to come home without evidence so he took a photo and sent it to Steven who finally sent it to me. I have been waiting all day for this. Thank you Chris!!!!

Overall things are going well. We can continue to do pt on our own but Nick has to start bending more. He is at 43 degrees and if he gets under 40, and remains there, lengthening will have to stop. We are actually moving to 4x per day lengthening instead of 3 though I have to wonder if that might not be prudent considering this knee business. Since I was not at the appointment I don’t know if my logic makes sense. I have to talk to Steven about it when he comes home. 4x per day would mean Nick will be done lengthening in 33 days. That would be amazing but I don’t want to push and make things harder for him. I just want him to get his 5cm safely and with as little pain as possible.

Nick was supposed to get a new brace that would help with extension but since extending is perfectly fine we are holding off on that but they are bringing home the new version of the magnet! I think it will be easier for me to lift with one hand.

That’s about all I know. I am so relieved to see that amazing space where new bone is growing. I hope Nick was happy too. 1.5cm down 3.5cm to go.
