The NEXT week it still did not seem healed . . . we went to the emergency room at DuPont Children's Hospital in Delaware,
I just had NO idea that this could even happen? Josh had been going to school everyday AND was even playing soccer? We spent HOURS in the emergency room, while they decided if they were going to try to get it out OR if they should let an orthopedic surgeon take a look. To pass the time Josh played his games and we entertained ourselves with rubber gloves. In the end they thought it would be best if we saw orthopedics.
We had our appointment 2 days later. Appartenly when your child has a piece of a sewng supply stuck in there foot it is considered an 'Ellective' surgery to have it removed? Who knew? When we did meet with the Orthopedic Surgeon he said it would be fine to keep it in!?
. . .and I stroked his little forehead and whispered 'I Love You bubby . . .You did it!' in his ear.
& then I quietly thanked God for every second he has blessed me with Josh
before he woke up.
We got to go home shortly after!
He had 2 stitches & a cool green dinosaur wrap.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing, watching TV & playing games.One week later we had to get up super early & go back for Josh's Post-Op appointment...
Josh recovered well, his bandaged came off and he was given the okay to take a real bath again!!! YAY!
We celebrated in the cafeteria with donuts!
Josh is happy to get back to his normal schedule:)
Have a great weekend!
