Today our little champ suffered a serious setback. X-rays taken this morning during Arden’s post-op at Seattle Children’s Hospital showed her femur is out of the socket.

So, things have not quite gone as planned. Arden’s femur has dislocated (which was a concern) and will have to be repositioned & re-cast tomorrow morning. We are hoping for a non-surgical option, however it is still a possibility for the best outcome. More X-rays will be done on Friday, and we have our fingers crossed for a Saturday return to Anchorage ❤️
We are heartsick over this setback, as you can imagine. But we are in the battle full-throttle for our little Arden whose response to this new normal has been better than we could have imagined. And now, either way they resolve this problem, she faces another round under anesthesia, and she’ll probably be back on pain meds too. Hopefully, they’ll be able to readjust things without a surgical procedure, but either way, this is a tough development.
Thank you for your prayers, your words of encouragement, and for being in this battle with us.
