ZITO SURGERY UPDATE
Two different Drs. consulted over Zito’s situation yesterday afternoon and agreed surgery is needed to locate and clear up his hip infection. He meets with anesthesia today and will have his surgery on Friday, August 2nd. Remember, we are 7 hours ahead of you in the US, so please remember him in your prayers this evening and through the night for you night owls. The orthopaedic surgeon told us that if all goes well and the infection is eliminated, HE SAYS IT IS POSSIBLE TO STRAIGHTEN HIS DEFORMED FEMUR so he can walk easier.
A few photos of Zito through the years since Brenda first met him in June 2012.ZITO’S STORY When he was a first grader, a bigger boy kicked him in his upper leg while playing soccer. His femur broke and was not set well, thus it healed at a sharp angle. He has been too weak physically until this time to even attempt surgery. PRAY that he does well with anesthesia, for how he does determines if further surgery is even a possibility. His infection must also completely clear in next 2 months before any further surgery can be considered.
