First off, I am sorry for not returning Facebook message & text messages. It's been busy for us and we've been swamped with phone calls, messages and such. We appreciate everyone's concerns and prayers. Over 800 people have read this blog today! I will continue to update her condition on the blog.
I personally have not had a chance to talk with the doctor since we got to Cooks later today and I missed the doc after surgery since I was checking in at the Ronald McDonald House.
Briley's surgery went very well. Rods were placed in both femurs. Her right femur should do very well with the rod. Since her left femur is broke more upwards, there was just enough bone to screw in the rod. The doctor will keep a close watch on that leg.
The good news is, she is not in a cast! She does have braces to keep her legs immobilized. She also has on a c-collar (neck brace) They will not take it off until she is about to be off of pain medication for a few hours so she can tell the doctor if her neck hurts or not. This may be tomorrow, or she may have to wear it for a month.
She is in a lot of pain. Serious pain. She is continually on pain meds through her IV and has a button to push if she needs more pain meds.
Sitting in this hospital room is all to familiar. We have no idea as of right now when she will be discharged. It's day to day. We are in room 4309.
She is sleeping now after getting an extra dose of pain meds. Bryson, mom, and I will be staying at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) tonight and in the coming days.
Bryson is doing great! We miss Nana. I'll try to post more later tonight.
