Our Hope

By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

Shoulder/Tendon Surgery Scheduled

I finally got Jadon's shoulder reduction/tendon transfer surgery scheduled out at Shriners.  Dr. Kozin will be doing Jadon's surgery on March 3rd.  We have to go in on the 2nd for the pre-op work so we will have to be out there by that Tuesday evening.  From what I understand Jadon will go home the following day (or at least back to the Ronald McDonald House) then we have to return in 4 weeks.  At that pre-op visit we will be in Philly for the entire week so that Jadon can have 5 days of physical therapy after his cast is removed. 

I am glad to have a date so we can start preparing ourselves for this big trip.  I am hoping after this surgery we will be done with surgeries for awhile! 


  1. "A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." Christopher Reeve said that; yes but it goes deeper - see http://www.clickok.co.uk/index4.html

  2. Wish you and your family well during the upcoming months. The surgery will be an emotional event and please prepare. But, in the end, your lives will be that much better. It will never be phyiscally perfect, but it will always be perfect in every sense of the word because you have a beautiful child. My daughter was born ten years ago with BPI and had her surgery when she was 6yrs old. She is doing well now...I look back and have no regrets other than I wish I could have done more during the delivery to prevent this.
