1 Corinthians 13:13

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Shriners Chicago Pictures and Update

After spending two nights at Shriners Children's Hospital Rachel was discharged home. Here are some of the pictures Rachel and I took during her hospital stay: 

Spina Bifida Daisies at Shriners- love them!

I have a few more to edit then I will add them. 

Rachel's surgery was pretty extensive - lasted about 6 hrs. Dr. Altiok and his team worked very hard to get both of Rachel's feet into a neutral, bracable position that would allow Rachel to place her feet flat on the floor. They had to work through a lot of scar tissue,scarred tendons and old surgical incisions. She has a pin in each foot that will need to remain in place along with long leg casts for 6 weeks. She is to be non-weight bearing the entire 6 weeks which means no standing, crawling or walking until healed.
