Monday, July 12th

It's been 8 days since Ethan's surgery and his thigh is looking better and better everyday! We are very excited because that means pool time!!! He was so ready for bubble baths because he hated the sponge baths!

Over the weekend, we attempted for Ethan to walk with his prosthetic but as it turns out it makes his short leg to high and bending his knee more than what it already does. Ethan's knee is bending more than other PFFDer's that have had the super hip/knee. We talked to Jennifer and she said that Abby's leg is pretty straight. That's a little concerning to us but we will wait and see what the week brings. He refuses to put a lot of pressure on his short leg so we hope that's the reason why it bends more than usual. I had him walk with his walker and he did pretty good. He is shifting his good leg to put the least amount of pressure on his short leg but we hope that as the days go by he gets more strength on his short leg and that he gets the needed confidence to walk on it.

Our appointment with Scottish Rite is set for July 26th. We were really hoping it would be sooner but due to clinics it might be impossible.

Please continue to keep our kids Ethan, Abby, Aubrey, Emily and Emma in your prayers!

Good night
