Going into Surgery #7

Hi all, I know I've been MIA for a while. It's been a very busy/stressful couple of weeks. Zane is having surgery this morning so I wanted to get a quick post out to ask for you prayers. We flew down yesterday and this morning he'll be operated on at 7:30 (if all is running on time). He's having his right armpit and wrist released to allow for better range of motion. He's done really well with therapy but basically therapy can't do much more on that right side. The skin has contracted and is so tight that it prevents him from normal motion. There's a chance that he'll get some work done on his elbow and thumb on the right side, but we'll have to wait to find out. After this surgery, he'll be hospitalized for about 5 days to make sure the grafts take and start to heal properly. Your prayers for this surgery would be very much appreciated. It should be pretty straightforward, but I suppose there's always the chance for complications. We have full faith that God will bring him through this smoothly just as He's taken him this far since October. I'll post an update once surgery is over. Thank you so much for your prayers.

Saying a prayer for the both of you, and for the very competent doctors who I am sure did a great job!
