Good news

 Praise the Lord with us! A doctor visit yesterday confirmed that Kaden does not need a surgery for any ligaments. The leg surgeon has requested to see him next month and the goal is to be able to completely straighten his leg by then. He had been working on bending but apparently straightening has a shorter time frame goal. He is at 15° so stretching A LOT multiple times per day. He starts PT this week and we’re hopeful that will take him the rest of the way to complete healing. 

He also saw the hand/wrist surgeon who doesn’t want to see him for 6 months because he’s all good. His OT has gone well and though he’s not 100%, he is steadily increasing in strength and range of motion. Yay!

Kaden’s recovery has been slow to him but incredibly fast in so many ways. We are so thankful for all of your prayers and encouragement! We see the Lord’s handiwork in mending Kaden and many of you have shared how amazed you are at his recovery. 

Please pray that Kaden will get to 0° or a completely straight leg (the goal date is 3mos from surgery or 12/1).

The doctors have said 6-8mos total recovery time and Kaden’s goals are to get back to the fitness standards set for federal law enforcement which the doctors say will take hard work and determination, but are doable (until we find out they’re not) - they say push for the goal though no guarantees. But Kaden knows that what happens is in the Lord’s hands, so we trust him and continue to do the next, best thing. 

Pray that if Kaden must change his career goals he sees where the Lord is leading. And that he can figure out what job to do in the meantime when he’s not healed but not broken. 

Again, thank you for praying Kaden and us through this journey. We are SO thankful for your support!
