Pillowcase #2...............

Thursday after surgery we met with Dr. Rout.
For those of you that remember this from April..............................................well, this is pillowcase #2!He drew this one as Nathan's rear view - the last one was the front view. It is amazing to sit and watch him draw without even pausing to think - I think he's done this a couple times before!! :-)

The CPM machine is pumping away and Nathan's knee is at about 110 degrees. They told us this morning that they have a spot reserved in the OR for Monday morning (this was news to us), just in case the leg starts to stiffen up at all again , then they will take him back in and manipulate it again right away. It sounds like there would be no actual surgery - just putting Nathan out and reefing on the leg. They say this to keep him motivated to work that machine like crazy!!

Randy went fishing with Dennis this morning, and my friend Debbie that we met while we were here at Harborview last time came and had coffee with me this morning - what a treat. This afternoon Jason, Tanya and the kids are coming down for a visit - we are looking forward to this. Randy's whole family left for Chelan so we haven't had any visitors yet - gets kind of lonely and time drags on.

Continue to pray for no infection and that Nathan's pain will stay managed so he can keep that knee and hip moving.

Thanks for checking in and for praying for us!

I am so glad that we were able to make it down! It was good to see all three of you and felt good to see Nathan standing and motivated to use that machine! We will be praying that they can go ahead and fill his OR spot on Monday with someone else! Keep up to hard work Nathan!! We love you all!! The Scheib Family =)
