We're cautiously optimistic this morning after hearing from the plastic surgeons. They have reviewed the CT scan of her right leg. Let me preface this by saying the metal plate that was inserted during surgery on Wednesday can distort the results of the CT scan (which is why we are cautiously optimistic). They will not know for certain if the following is true until they are in surgery tomorrow. However, here's the plan from the surgeons at the moment: Based upon the results of the CT scan (that could be distorted), it appears all three major vessels in her right leg are intact. Additionally, it appears the remaining muscle is adequate to be used to fill the void in her right leg. As such, at present, they are planning the "optimal" surgery on her right leg tomorrow, which will simply relocate existing calf muscles rather than requiring them to move a muscle from the abdomen to her calf.
SPECIFIC PRAYER REQUEST: We need to pray that the CT results were not distorted and that they are able to repair the leg using existing muscles in the leg.
If they are able to go the route they are planning, it will be a 4-6 hour surgery, and they will repair the right AND left legs. If they are required to use a muscle from the abdomen, it will be a 6-8 hour surgery, and they will repair the left leg on Wednesday.
She had a really good day yesterday, and is feeling pretty good this morning. She's eating well, so we're very happy about that!
Thanks for all the prayers - we really do appreciate them, and they really do make a difference!!
