Well, we did it. After much prayer, much discussion and much research we took Grace to Galveston to have PERCS with Dr. Yngve. We met with the doctor and his team on Monday to discuss the procedure and Grace's situation. After several hours with his team, we decided to go forward with the surgery the next morning at 7:00. Needless to say, I didn't sleep much Monday night and was even second guessing everything as we left our hotel at 5:30 am the next morning. Is the the right thing? Is it the right time?
This is what was done...
-semitendinosus percutaneous tenotomy
-myofascial lengthening single hamstring (Timi let's discuss this)
-percutaneous adductor tenotomy
-biceps brachialis lengthening
She has cast from her toes to her knees and sleep in leg splints and arm splints.
I know it sounds like a lot but Grace was up and walking (with my help) yesterday. She is doing great but now the REAL work begins! She even rode her tricycle this morning. She is, obviously, pretty weak but I am so excited about her recovery and the possibilities. A PT is coming to the house tomorrow morning to help me develop a home program. She will also be doing yoga on MWF and then back to CE in July. We will be very busy!!!
