Shane was taken by ambulance from Gaylord to Yale Hospital this morning bright and early. Surgery was scheduled for 0730 and he was in there at 0729. The surgeon spoke with us at 0900 and advised that the surgery was successful. He was able to clean up the scar tissue and pull some of the back muscle from the top and bottom to connect and cover the exposed bone. When I asked how many stitches, his reply was plenty. Shane’s wound this time looks to be the size of the original one by the size of the covering. He also has two drains in this wound. Shane was then admitted to a room. He was able to order his lunch and ate, however he was in quite a lot of pain. By the evening his pain increased and they were increasing the medication. At this point we do not know where Shane is going or when. Praying the wound heals and Shane will be sent to an appropriate place for him to continue his rehab. Thank you for all the prayers today and everyday.
