Tried posting this yesterday, but my e-mail wasn't working.
Chantel had some more surgery done Monday and they took out one of the rods and replaced it with a smaller rod and replaced 1 screw because they thought it might have been pressing on the nerve that runs to her right leg. She felt a great deal better almost right away. Today she has almost all the feeling back in her right leg, with only a spot or two that is numb and the Dr. tells her that as the swelling goes down in the incision area that should also return to normal. She can also move the right leg a lot farther than she could yesterday and she can walk more normally now.
Tonight when I went by to visit her she was doing a lot better and was all smiles and feeling better. She said she was also finally able to get a good sleep last night. We are hoping she might be released to come home late tomorrow or Thursday.
