It is 11:30 and i sit here embarrassingly at peace. I even questioned - is it because Cav is adopted. To some extent the answer is . . . Yes. But not because I love this wild child any less than my other children. But because as I laid him on the gurney I felt as if I was laying him into God's hands. This child in particular has always been His - it still amazes me a child who meant nothing in his homeland has had such a dramatic impact on ours. As a side note - cav's little leg was already gone by our first call from the OR at 10. As I was typing this they came out and are just now closing on his second leg. I believe he has ended up with a - Through the knee amputation on the right A Symes amputation on the left And a tibial osteotomy on the left. The left will be casted and we think the right will have a pressure dressing. And now is the calm before the storm. We have been receiving texts, calls, and messages from all over the world today - THANK YOU!
