My mother Joy Waldroop had her surgery to fix her shattered heel on June 17th. Although all went well, surgery took longer than expected. Recovery is slow going, she can't put any weight on it for at least 12 weeks. She is staying with my wife and I now. She still don't know when she will be able to go back to work.
My nephew Jackson has had surgery to fix the large piece of tissue that the tornado ripped from his right buttocks. They took skin grafts from his left leg to fill it in. He is now in The Children's center for rehab, where he will remain until his wounds are completely healed, then back to the hospital for other surgeries. He still has at least 3 surgery's left. His fractured pelvis, severed urethra and reverse his colostomy bag.
My mother is going in to have surgery to fix her shattered heal on June 17th, and be there a couple days.
My nephew had surgery on June 11th to close up his large wounds on his legs and buttocks. They had to get skin off his left thigh to graft on his buttocks. His pelvis is still fractured, but they are waiting on this last surgery to heal before they attempt to fix it. The urologist says he can't do surgery to repair his severed urethra for at least six months. He has a long road to recovery, he will go to a rehab to learn to walk again after having a pin put in his right leg to fix his femur that was broken in three places.
This little boy has been through so much, not only all the injuries, but loosing his momma (Shannon Quick) and little dog Luke, to that terrible monster tornado.
Thank you all for your generosity and prayers!
My nephew Jackson, is now in a private room and doing better. He still has a long road to recovery, but is improving each time I see him.
My mother Joy is also still in the hospital. I seen a picture of her shattered heel today, the whole ankle is still really swollen and the severe cut s on her arm are still nasty looking. Her bruising on her body has started to go away, but she is still sore.
Thank you all for your thoughts, prayer and support. God Bless You ALL!!!
