Thank you for praying and thank the Lord for answering these prayers! Matthew’s surgery went very well. The surgeon was able to make the nerve transfers she wanted to, from his spinal accessory nerves and his intercostal (rib) nerves to his trapezius and deltoid. He now has four incisions, including a longer one from his left lower leg where they took a donor nerve to span the gaps where the other nerves were not able to reach.
Matthew’s pain is low now and he is in great spirits. Walking will be difficult while the leg incision heals and at the moment he is on a liquid-only diet, but hopefully he can have a normal supper since he has had to fast since midnight due to surgery.
There is some infection on his arm stump so please pray that that will quickly heal. Pray also he can be discharged soon and we can get back to family in Kansas City.
Thank you for all your prayers and words of encouragement. We feel very loved and supported.
Todd for the whole Price clan
