Time to Go
I can't say that I am ready but I know it is time to deal with Naomi's foot. We had an August 11 appt. for her amputation but said we would be open to moving the date up if there was a cancellation. We have been called twice now but everytime on a Fri. to be up in Shreveport on Sunday. Both times we were just not ready but said next time we will be even if it is on a Fri. So they call on Thursday to be up in Shreveport on Tues. A bit more doable considering all the arrangements we have to make for the other girls.
We know it is for the best , but still telling people is hard and hard to explain. Funny thing is that Naomi is trying to deal with her foot in her way. She will go get a flip-flop or princess shoe and put it on her little foot. Not both, just the little foot and walk around like that so that it lifts her foot up an inch or so. It's time!
The plan is to leave tomorrow and check in on Tues. and the operation will be Wed. Hope to be home by Sun. and then go back in 4 weeks to take the cast off and fit for a prothesis . When it's ready we go back and stay for a while to learn to use it.
Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts for her surgery and recovery.
