Prayers for our 7 year old Darci
« on: April 13, 2019, 06:19:08 AM »
  Some may recall our youngest of three daughters was born without any thumbs and she had her left index finger moved over to the thumb position in Dec. 2017 and God answered "Our" prayers.
  So now we come to you again Father to answer our prayers for her operation on her Right hand this Monday April 15 as the Surgeons will attempt to straighten her right hand and Cast it to straighten her wrist area.
  She won't be getting the index moved to make a thumb and not certain if the Dr's can but may at a later date.
  Please if you all will pray for little Darci with us I ask in Jesus name.
                                 Thank you ALL Prayer warriors :pray:

Prayers sent to our Father for Darci  :pray:

Dang, Hoss... Tuesday is today!!! 

I didn't get here yesterday to check for new posts so totally missed this! :(

Sorry...

Please let li'l Darcy know the "old guy" is holding her up and hope all goes well...Tough time of year for a wee one to be in a cast with all the outdoor things coming up, but she's a trooper!

Lord, in your great Mercy, hear our prayers...We ask in Jesus' name

  Thank you All for those prayers and Darci's surgery went very well Thanks be to God !
She is still up to Sinai Hospital in Baltimore and has to spend a second night up there due to making sure she can handle being off the "Iv" meds . and take  oral meds. for her pain.
  My wife is with her and I have two other daughters at home to care for .
 Praying she can come home tomorrow and please pray for Travel mercy's for my wife cause it gets a bit crazy up there.
  Darci had a almost 90 degree turned right hand at the wrist area and born with no thumbs. As some remember her left index finger was moved to the thumb area in 2017 and that looks very good now. The same surgeon took the right hand and from my understanding of the procedure they had to cut a wedge on the wrist and remove some bone and then move hand in a some what straight position and instead of pins he put a metal plate or hardware to hold the wrist in a straight position.
  She has drain tubes on and they are also monitoring that and making sure she can tolerate being on tylonal  with minimal prescription meds.
  She played shooting hoops today in the play room and been walking around so that is a good sign.
  I talked to her last night and Face timed her and she is a strong little 7 year old and I just Love her so much as I do all the girls God has Blessed my wife and I with through Adoption.
   We used to have a magnet on our vehicles with these words."Adoption The Loving Option"!
  Also as we near the time when Jesus died for Our sins and was raised we are reminded He has Adopted us when we trust in Him!
   Thanks again prayer warriors and Happy Easter to all. :pray:

Awesome thought and insight, Keith!  You have a way with words at times!  :notworthy:

Prayer Warriors we Thank you all for your prayers and Darci is doing remarkably well and just a little children's Tylenol for her pain . Tomorrow we take her back up to Baltimore as they remove the splint and bandages and install a Hard cast she must wear for 6 weeks . We will hopefully get to talk to the Surgeon on exactly what he placed as far a s hardware and how much of the wrist bone he had to remove or grind to straighten her arm.
  I should have a better explanation of what that is called but my wife just went for a walk while I'm typing this update to you all and she knows what its called.
  So If you will and don't mind can you pray for travel mercies and a good report for tomorrow (Monday) for us as we head up to Baltimore ? Thank you all and Happy Easter ..
                                                                                         Keefer's <')))><

Travel anywhere after a holiday is a caution but on 695 or thereabouts, it can be a real challenge so you got the prayers! 

Bring em back home...

Whatever they did is called doesn't matter much---I'd call it a minor miracle they can even do such things... Nice to know such is possible today, with God's help thru them surgeons!

     A Big Thanks to everyone once again for the prayers and travel Mercies.
Darci did get the soft wrap taken off yesterday and a hard cast put in place to keep hand straight for 3 weeks instead of 6 now. The Dr. said her bone is knitting or mushing and the plate appears to have 6 screws holding her wrist area straight. She will have this throughout her life we are told.
  Now there was some expected swelling and a long incision up her wrist area and I shared a picture with Doc and if he wants to post it that's fine with me.
  Darci has pretty much no pain she says and just a little children's Tylenol if need be. She ended up with a pink camo pattern because the Dr. had no green or green camo she wanted to have on for her Daddy.
  Talk about a Sweetheart and she cares for others for sure. God truly Blessed us with these three girls for sure.
   She will get therapy and a night time splint when the cast comes off to help in keeping her wrist area straight now.
  To see it go from a near 90 degree inward turn to a straight hand is a Miracle in itself and there are some great Dr's out there.
   Maybe later I can get some cute little pose's for you all so you can see this little creature! :biglaugh: 
 In the "Meantime" here's an ornery one of her a while back lol..

Keith,

I think i'll pass on posting that pic!  Folks might not want to see that with their din-din!  :saywhat: :scared:

While the repair surgery is amazing, that the wee one went thru that and only needs Kiddie tylenol is truly amazing!

Lots of older folks have plates and screws; but she'll need to be careful as I've also known some who had them, especially in their back and broke screws loose! Not good...  :o

  Hows this one Doc?  Do you see a resemblance? :biglaugh:

NO resemblance to yer ugly mug, that's for sure!  Thankfully! :):)

You sure do have some pixies for your 3 "china dolls"... the oldest's pic you sent me is going to give her adopted daddy fits! She's got it going on! :)

That scroochy face one sure shows how that wrist was malformed... That pic post surgery you shared showing that gruesome scar is a world of difference... That one digit, sure looks almost like a thumb, but it's a bit startling to see only 4 digits on that hand...

But what a sweet, sweet chile... :)  You be one lucky dude there, Keefer!
