Lacey update

Lacey underwent a bone graph yesterday morning at 7:30 a.m. By 9:00 a.m., the little “diva” was resting comfortable in a recovery room. The surgeon informed us that he had removed the cyst, which was larger that original thought, and then packed the space left behind with lots of artificial bone material. He then placed her leg in a cast – but it is only on the leg that underwent surgery – which was a blessing. Within a week, she should be able to walk around on her cast. The cast comes off in 4 weeks, then it is 2 weeks in a brace, and then she will be back to her old self – just with a stronger femur.

Her biggest obstacle at this point is adjusting to doing things with one leg in a cast. And since she is a diva and has a bit of a temper, the adjusting is taking a bit longer that we would like (and it is a lot louder than we would care for). But we know that in the coming days, she’ll be up and going again.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
