Brad's sugery went very well today. Dr. Marco & Dr. Brinker both seemed very pleased with the outcome which we were thrilled to hear...hooray! The doctors put a metal plate w/screws at the top of Brad's tibia to stabalize the breaks at that location and then another metal plate w/screws at the base of his fibula. Dr. Marco mentioned that Brad's fibula was already beginning to heal on its own which was good to hear.
We were told to expect Brad to stay in the hospital through Thursday or Friday. He is in a brace right now and will be non-weight bearing on the leg for at least 2 months. He has been having a little trouble with the pain medication this time...side effects making him groggy & nausious. Since then he has backed off on the medication and he seems to be doing a lot better.
Thank you for your prayers. We are SO relieved at the success of the surgery and we look forward to the days to come as Brad continues on his road to a speedy recovery. We love you all.
