I am Titanium, for real.
Aidan is five weeks out from having his spinal fusion. Two titanium rods were placed from his T3 all the way to his pelvis. That’s a lot of metal. His scoliosis was significant. It effected his ability to sit up and to walk and would eventually have compensated his health because of the scrunching of his internal organs. His bottom rib was sitting ON his hip bone. You probably can’t even contort your body to do that on demand. So off to the OR we went. We had a very positive experience with the medical staff and Aidan healed exceptionally well. We busted out of the hospital in just six days, record time for us.
Aidan is on no pain medications and is walking quite a bit. He has to relearn how to use his muscles which will, of course, take time. This is essentially a new body for him. Are you ready for some pictures?
First, let me show you his scar. We took his bandage off after just 10 days and it had dissolvable stitches. Check it out:
Aidan didn’t love the process but he was very patient with his daddy who put his CNA skills to work.
Here he is having some chill time after that big event:
And here he is AFTER:
And feel free to take a little peek inside:
Amazing, right? Aidan certainly thinks so.
