We found out the results from the MRI on Thursday, and they were not good. I needed a couple days to process it, and to get myself together before posting about it on here. I'm just going to make this short and sweet, because I just don't feel like talking about it to be quite honest. But, I know that everyone is wanting an update, so I will just give the basics.
The scar tissue that we knew was in the joint space is pretty thick, and is pushing on the hip causing it to move up and to the left. Dr. Brock wants to schedule an arthroscopic surgery to clean out the joint, and then he wants to put Dane back in a cast for another 4 1/2 months.
We have an appointment scheduled Tuesday, November 17th with another orthopedic surgeon who specializes in children to get a 2nd opinion and see if there are any other options. We are not making any decisions until we talk to someone else.
On the outside/ the exterior I am fine. I am able to pull myself together, force smiles, force conversations, force laughter, pretend that although I am upset I am fine.
On the inside I am deeply saddened for my little man, I just want to be left alone, feel depression setting in, angry, have feelings of guilt along with feeling hopeless about Dane's situation...on the inside things are not fine.
So, the end of this journey is not near...not even close
