Robbie has had a better day today. He was able to sit up for the first part of the day in a special chair that lets him be elevated, but keeps pressure off his hip, pelvis, and back. He was also able to do a little physical therapy this morning on his upper body which he enjoyed.
Tommorrow please pray as he is scheduled to go back into the o.r. for another cleanout of the wound in his back. The doctor spoke with us this afternoon and said that so far it is looking good. Continue to pray that it will be infection-free and the cleanout would be smooth without any complications.
In order for Robbie to get his lung capacity strengthened, he has a little “something o-meter” (which we call his video game) that he uses to take deep breaths and hold them. I taped a wallet-size picture of our family on it in order to give him motivation. He has to “breathe to Betsy.”
Yesterday was a very difficult day for Robbie physically and me emotionally. Thank you for your prayers. This is not a path that you can figure out all at once and sometimes the bumps are unexpected. A week ago I did not know where we would be right now. I am brought to my knees in tears of gratitude as I look at my sweet husband and think of how God has kept him. I am in awe of God’s mercy and grace toward us.
Thank you – I’ll post as soon as I can tomorrow.
