The next pictures you will see will be of our adorable baby boy with casts that look more like mitts or boxing gloves to protect his fingers and allow the skin graft to bind and heal. Even though it is only his fingers, the cast will go up past his elbows. This is because babies are notorious for wiggling out of casts, and having Levi's arms locked at a 90 degree angle will eliminate that risk. Levi is a wiggle worm for sure and despite the fact that clothing a baby with two casts on his arms will be a challenge, at least he won't get out of them.
Lastly, please pray for Levi as he will have to be under general anesthetic. The hospital in Indy has had plenty of experience with surgeries on babies even younger and smaller than Levi. That helps to put me a little more at ease, but I still struggle with nervousness about the surgery. I think that is normal for any mother. We are planning on an overnight stay at the hospital and hope to come home on Saturday. We appreciate your prayers and support. I will keep you updated to his progress as best I can while in the hospital and once we are home. Thank you for your prayers and support!
