Brooke Breaks leg, Surgery

Thursday morning we get a phone call from Angel, our daughter. Brooke fell on her bike on her way to school and that she is taking her to the hospital.

It was an extremely long day for Wilma, Angel and Brooke. She was admitted to the hospital with a severe broken leg. So severe that it will require surgery. The surgery was scheduled for first thing Friday morning, so our daughter Angel, stayed with her throughout the night.

Wilma and I were up at 4:30am Friday so she would be with Brooke prior to her going down for surgery. They didn’t end up taking her until around 9:00am.

Prior and after surgery Brooke kept everyone updated on Facebook.

After surgery, the Dr. talked to Angel and Wilma. He informed them that it was a very bad break and the bone was shattered at the rear of her left calf. A plate and 8 screws were needed to mend the bone back together.

The Dr. said that after some physical therapy tomorrow morning, she might be ready to go home Saturday afternoon. She has a cast from her toes to her knee, and she will have to learn how to walk with crutches.

This is how I first saw her after surgery.

Not wanting to wake her I placed a kiss on her forehead. Many prayers are being said for her complete recovery.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
