If I could not walk far and fast....

....I think I should just explode and perish. ~Charles Dickens

Kieran has one more day of walking. He has to repeat the ankle surgery he had in 1st grade. He has non-traumatic AVN of both talus (ankle) bones. He'll have core decompression surgery again and maybe a bone graft this time. One ankle at a time this go 'round so he doesn't have to be in a wheelchair. We are trying to get a knee walker so he doesn't have to use crutches. He'll have 6 weeks of no weight bearing on his right foot. I planned it so he should be healed by his big sister's wedding and Halloween.

We have to be at Children's Hospital at 6:30 am. No eating past midnight. This is the worst part because he doesn't come out of anesthesia well and when he finally does wake up he's a ravenous animal.
