Still a chance

Today at the doctor something great happened. My main surgeon decided to take an x ray to see what all was going on with the bone graft. Well...after being left in the room forever and freaking out they came in and said it appears that you have only lost about 20% of the graft. This means that I still have an 80% chance of the graft taking if we can kick this infection soon. I am just amazed, I've been crying and going through all kinds of emotions. Going from there's pretty much no hope in my heart to this is just such an emotional whirlwind for me and I dont want to get my hopes up but still....

Great News! I am praying all works well for you. Are you on a clear liquid diet? When my graft was done I was instructed not to have anything dairy or creamy until they could see me a week later. It was a hard week eating nothing but broth, jello, clear soup with vegetables that was put in a blender. They felt this would reduce any infection....Hoping and praying for the best for you!

That's great news. We'll continue to pray for you. God is good.

My bone graft was done 7 years ago and I remember having just broth all the time. I lost so much weight.
