Just a quick update this time, because I'm too excited to write much. I just received a call from Zane's lead doctor telling me the surgery was over and it had gone as well as it could have! They were able to excise and graft his entire right arm and his left flank, and excise the rest of the skin on his abdomen. He had minimal blood loss and didn't need any transfusions in the OR. They'll probably give him some once back in the ICU, just to keep his levels where they should be. The grafts done last week on his neck and upper chest haven taken beautifully as well. They expect to be able to do the grafting on his left arm and the rest of his abdomen on Wednesday, and do the tracheostomy on Friday since the neck graft has healed so well. Praise God!
We are elated and thanking God just as fiercely as we plead with him for Zane's life. Prayer is real; miracles are real.. and my amazing husband is living proof.
