Jules surgery consultation is July 11
UPDATE- We think we are going to cancel our week at the beach, and push surgery to be sooner, as her foot becomes more painful each day- she is far more important than our week of vacation. I'll keep everyone posted. I am going to call for a sooner date of evaluation today while I drive to Gainesville.
Julianna, our youngest daughter goes for her surgery consultation on July 11. She has a soft tissue growth on the bottom of her foot and it needs to be removed. We are hoping for surgery in August. I'll keep you posted- pray that she is not still in pain by the time school starts. Thank you. Here is a picture of our brave little soldier. For those of you who don't know, she suffered a 12 week long stomach virus this spring, to be followed by a diagnosis of Sever's Syndrome of the foot- temporary but painful- here's a link to it-http://www.eorthopod.com/public/patient_education/6619/severs_syndrome.html
She's been in a walking boot for 3 weeks and will probably be in it for another few months to protect the new surgery site. She's been through the ringer, but she has been a brave little soldier. If any of you would like to send her good wishes, her email address is BrassyHamster@aol.com. This is a favorite picture of hers- it's her with Dudley- a severe macaw we rescued last weekend. She got her ears pierced and she's really thrilled!Love, Anne
