For my step son
« on: April 25, 2013, 09:19:30 am »
Hi everyone,
I need a little help for my boy. He fell while playing at recess about two weeks ago and hurt his right knee very badly. He has prepatellar bursitis. His knee is swollen up like a softball.

He's been to see an orthopedic specialist who said that sometimes it will heal on it's own, but that doesn't seem to be happening in this case. The doctor is recommending surgery.

So, we've decided to schedule the surgery for next Friday. We're hoping it might start to improve on it's own over the next week. If it doesn't, then he's going to have the surgery. But, he's only 12 and we really don't want him to have to go through that.

As most of you know, I can't heal a paper cut. So prayers, energy, happy healing thoughts, whatever you've got to spare would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Cat

I';m not very good at healing either, but I'll pray for your son.

Consider it done, and some for you and your partner as well.

Poor little dude!
Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?

No problem Cat. I know what it's like to have to watch your child go and have surgery.

Thanks everyone. He seemed a little better today. He's not limping, and he says it doesn't hurt as much. Fingers crossed he's on the mend.

He's back with his mom and step dad for the next 4 days, but I know she'll keep me updated on any changes. I'll let you all know how he's doing.

Thanks again, it means the world to me.

Good news! The swelling is almost completely gone and he's feeling much better. It looks like we can skip the surgery. He still has to be careful for the next 4 weeks or so, until he's completely healed, but it all looks really good. He has an appointment for a checkup at the end of May. If he gets the all clear, he can resume his regular activities.

Let me tell you, we have one very happy little boy and four very relieved parents. Thanks again, everyone, for all of your help. I believe it really made a difference. Thank you.
