update on scott

Scott's surgery went well. The biopsies will come back in five days, but the frozen cells were negative for Cancer so we are not worried about that. The surgeon said that the mass was a reaction to his inflammatory disease (which is Crohn's). They were able to remove the majority of the mass, so we are very hopeful that this will relieve his pain. He began physical therapy today. He goes every day for one week and then two to three times a week after that. Because this is surgery #2 on the same knee, there is a lot more fluid build-up.

I have to give a shout out to our surgeon, Dr. Geary at Steadman Hawkins. He has called us from his personal cell phone FROM HOME twice now to check on Scott. To say we are impressed with the entire practice would be an understatement! Technically, because there is no structural damage to Scott's leg/knee, he does not have to treat him. He could have sent us to an auto-immune doctor MONTHS ago. He didn't because he cares!! Thank You, Lord, for doctors who still care!

For now, we sit back and keep our fingers crossed and pray that this does not happen again. We are hoping that Scott has a NICE LONG break from being sick and in pain! We love all of you and thank you for your prayers and support.....

(...and FYI, my sweet K5 boy has been "on green" for almost a month now!)
