    My daughter going into hospital

    Post  UKSteve on October 8th 2012, 9:28 am

    My daughter Naomi, who just turned 7, is going into hospital on Wednesday for a minor operation. It should be a fairly routine op to straighten her thumb, but the surgeon will have to cut very close to a nerve, any damage to which has potential to create worse problems. She has had a similar operation before, but the wound became infected and prevented the thumb from straightening. It is to her right hand as well, so a quick return to full use is pretty vital at this stage in her schooling.

    So please pray for a steady hand for the surgeon, a quick and successful return to normal use of her thumb, and patience for all of us as we keep Naomi off school to help ensure that the wound stays clean this time.

    Thanks guys, we are now back after what appears to be a successful operation, but Naomi, in a moment of being waaay cleverer than a 7 year old should be, has taken the 'slight risk of nerve damage and loss of sensitivity' to heart and believes this has happened. Hopefully the numbness she is experiencing is just the local anaesthetic working its way through the system, so continued prayers that this is the case are appreciated Smile

    Update: as expected, the feeling returned the next day, so no permanent harm. Now it just needs Naomi to do her bit by keeping it clean and exercising the thumb so it will straighten itself. Smile

    Update to the update: Naomi has had the thumb bandaged for the last 2 weeks, just had it removed today and although all seems ok, she's a little worried about it and how she'll manage at school tomorrow, so continued prayers for healing much appreciated Smile
