This post is long overdue. I was a bit overwhelmed with what I needed to get done after we were home from Jonathan's surgery, and blogging moved to the back burner.
In the morning we went back to the surgeon's office for a check before leaving for home.
The surgeon said how surprised he was at how dense Jonathan's bone was. I guess normally bone in that area is rather thin, but not in Jonathan's case. That was a real blessing.
Another CT scan was done of Jonathan's head ... It was very interesting to take a look at his "before" and "after" scans, and see what the surgeons had done. The 2nd scan showed the cuts in his bone and the titanium plates that were used to reposition the jaw.
During the follow-up 5 days after surgery both surgeons came in to check on Jonathan. It was interesting to hear them talk about how strong Jonathan's bone structure was; Jonathan proceeded to tell them he has been drinking raw milk for over a year, and attributes his wealth of calcium in his bones to that fact. Of course, that was not something they wanted to hear. We appreciate them just the same.
One thing that has amazed me is the fact that there has been no bruising, and swelling was limited. We are so thankful for everyone's prayers. Everything has gone so smoothly.
