Robbie heads back into the o.r. tomorrow (Tuesday) for more wound cleanout. Here are the scenarios that the doctor gave Robbie this evening:
- The wound looks beautiful and they decide to go ahead and close it, sending him home in a couple of days.
- Clean out the wound and do bedside dressing changes, then go back into the o.r. and close the wound.
- Clean out wound, bedside changes, and later at home bring in home health for bedside changes, allowing would to heal.
We are asking God for scenario #1 – that the wound would look great and the doctors would decide to close it. Rob’s surgeon considers this the most unlikely scenario, but we know that the Great Physician is able to do it.
Rob’s appetite is coming back and he has been able to eat well over the last few days (we even had Neely’s barbecue for lunch on Saturday – they are just down the street from The Med). He was able to get back into a wheelchair today for awhile and worked hard in physical therapy.
We are anxious to have Robbie home. The primary request for us is still that the wound would be free of infection and that tomorrow when they go into the o.r., the surgeons will see what God has done in causing the wound to heal beautifully. Thank you for praying.
