Update on Micah

Micah's Surgery on his finger went well yesterday. The doctor wanted to check and make sure there was no nerve or tendon damage. Praise God there was none. He also needed to squeeze together the broken bone near the tip of his finger. When he squeezed it together it popped back out, so he stitched it together. He also cleaned up the cut itself. It was very jagged so he made it look nicer.

It is so amazing to me how well children can bounce back. He woke up fairly quickly from the Anesthesia. At first he was a little fussy, but once in his Mommy's arms he was fine. He mostly slept on the way home and woke up once we were home. He sat in my lap for a while then decided to play. Within 2 hours of being home he pretty much seemed his old self. I however, needed a long nap. I had to get up at 4:00 a.m. so we could get him there by 6:30. Most of the afternoon I took a nap on the couch.

Micah took about a 2 hour nap late in the afternoon. The rest of the evening he was bouncing off the walls like usual. Hubby and I were a bit protective because we didn't want him to bang his finger and injure it any more. Thankfully all is well and he is doing well today.Thanks everyone for the prayers. They are so much appreciated.

Here is a picture of Micah today showing his "blue" finger! Don't you love the cowboy boots and hat with his shorts?
