Very Successful surgery for Little Max

Max had his surgery yesterday and, praise God, came through just fine! The doctors performed a 1 1/2 hour surgery that released his contracted arm and then covered it with a skin graft, using his leg as a donor site. Right after the surgery he was experiencing some tearful pain, but prayerfully, was eating and smiling by early Thursday night. Max had a restful nights sleep and was up, hobbling around on his operated leg Friday. He was all smiles and was giving out many kisses. We are very thankful that his pain has subsided. His family is very thankful for the people who helped to make his surgery happen. Please continue to pray for Max in the coming weeks; that he would stay free of infection, heal, and regain the motion in his arm. We especially pray that Max would continue to see God working in his life!
Sleepy time! Max is sedated before going completely under for his surgery.

The surgery; performed by the wonderful Dr. Bernard and Dr. Duverseau.
Friday! Up and walking around...all smiles. Praise God!
