Christmas in May

I can't believe we got a Christmas present in May.

Matthew was oked for surgery, seems it is just allergies. He has no fever or cough. They took him in and I went to wait in the OR waiting room. About 15 min into it I got a phonecall. THe nurse said Dr Dobbs wanted to speak with me. I thought, oh no. But it was good news. He said that Matthew's dorsiflexion was greater then he could have expected for a week in a cast and he recommended no surgery.

My jaw just about hit the floor.

Dr Dobbs said he would recast him in the OR and then send him to recovery.

After recovery, we got our new appointment for cast removal, brace fitting and p/t for May 18.

Who knew that foot wrapped up in plaster and blue fiberglass held such a wonderful Christmas present.

Did you hear a loud thud all the way from New Jersey?! Holy cow -- my jaw is joining yours on the floor! Unbelievable!!! If that's not an answer to prayer, I don't know what is! :)

I was eagerly awaiting this post, and this has far exceeded anything I could have imagined. So, so happy for you both!! Merry Christmas! :)

Awesome! I KNOW that you KNOW that you made the right choice going all the way to St.Louis to see Dr. Dobbs. I'm so happy that we connected online several months ago. You're story is always one of hope and admiration! Safe travels home. Jamie
