Surgery

Well I don't have any pictures uploaded yet but I thought that I would give a quick update on Morgans finger. After having stitches for 3 days we noticed that she still couldn't move her pinky finger. So we took her up to a plastic surgeon to have it looked at. Apparently she cut her tendons and that was causing her to not move. So 5 days later we were in surgery reconnecting the tendons and repairing any nerve damage that was there as well. The surgery went well and although in a lot of pain Morgan is her happy self. The hardest part is trying to get her to settle down and hold her hand up. She is now in a soft cast which will be taken off by the doctor in a week. Once that is done then we start with Physical Theropy. We aren't quite sure how often we will have to take her in but from talking to the theropist is sounds like 3 times a week. That is going to be crazy but it is so important that the theropy is taken seriously so that the finger is able to move correctly afterward. There is still 20% chance that her finger won't move right aganin and 30% chance that her feeling won't come back. So although the odds aren't great we are hoping for the best. And lesson learned Never Play With Glass Bottles.

That is just so sad! I feel so bad for your poor little girl! It is amazing how fast kids bounce back though! I hope everything goes well with physical therapy!

I know all too well about this! My husband just just did that to his thumb!!! Word of warning though, he STILL doesn't have full or even 1/2 movement maybe only 1/4 movement in it now (which has been about 3 months ago). Good luck though, with a kid that young hopefully she has a better chance.
