@QBWalters1 heads in for surgery tomorrow! Time for this Tiger to punch Perthes in the face! #tackleperthes

Tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. Elijah goes in for surgery #2! Our surgeon will go in and remove the fixator, check his range of motion (which is HUGE), blood circulation to the bone, and get a vivid arthrogram. All of these will factor into what doc decides next phase of treatment looks like. We do know that Elijah will have a customized brace, which he was fitted for today, and will have to wear indefinitely. So, now we’re just hanging tight (thinking about our 5th grade Loveland Tigers who earned themselves a spot at the Super Bowl this weekend) and waiting for tomorrow morning.

Today was quite special, because as we were in Baltimore prepping for tomorrow, Loveland Intermediate was holding its annual carnival. This year’s carnival was particularly dear to our hearts, due to the fact that they asked if it could benefit Elijah?’s medical bills. What? What an unexpected and incredible blessing!! So, as we were sitting in the waiting room at Sinai Hospital, we were getting pics of the fun, the booths, the amazing people enjoying one another while having a blast!  Although it was a bummer missing it, we were reminded that we are surrounded by such powerful love.

It’s strange being away from our other 3 children, but this time with Elijah has been precious. I love listening to him and Shayne rattle off sports stats and trivia (even though they can’t even remember to take out the trash :). I love watching his love for life, adventure, experiences. I love rubbing his neck and feet. I love seeing him inhale life. I love joining in as we talk about how good God is despite Perthes. I love getting a front row seat to watch God use these circumstances and use Elijah for HIS glory.  I love seeing him discover that he has more courage and bravery than he ever thought possible. I love watching him #tackleperthes. I love being his mom.

Please partner with us, as we are believing and expecting for a great surgery and miraculous report!
