Here are a few pictures of Sonel before surgery and after. When we first got to the surgery center, the staff had bought Sonel a bag full of toys! He was a happy camper until we went back and had to change his clothes. He knew something was up when I put him on the bed. He started crying so the nurses gave him all the band aids he wanted, to play with. Dr. DeHeer even took pictures of Sonel and all his band aids. Surgery was about 2 hours long. Dr. DeHeer came out and showed me a picture, on his camera, of Sonel's feet...his STRAIGHT feet! They have steel rods sticking out of his heels (ouch!), but they looked so good. He was in a lot of pain, but once it was under control, he slept all the way home, THANK YOU JESUS. Tonight will be a long night, I'm sure, but it will be worth some sleepless nights (for me) to get to see him walk. I want to thank everyone for your prayers.
