real quick cause sleep calls… mike’s shunt flow study did indeed turn out ok after much testing. it flows head to gut, case closed. and we did make the orthowhatever appt and he did beg for a quick surgery date so they gave him his way and scheduled ankle tendon release surgry for wed. feb 6. so that will be an outpatient thing and then 6 weeks with casts and then he will need to do immediate standing/balancing practice to get those heels to the floor and his feet in the right shape. that will be an astounding place to be. he will basically have no balance at first and it will be painful stretching but i believe it will finally be the kind of exercise mike will be pining for. so we couldn’t possibly have a week without multiple doctor appointments–good thing mike fixed that danger! whatever will we do for entertainment when they are tapering off for a few weeks? thanks and peace, michelle

    Full of excitement and praise as we picture Mike standing and balancing. We will be praying for great results and Mike to feel a sense of accomplishment as things have been slow in his eyes. Looking forward to seeing you next week! Love to all the Z family!

    Luke had this sort of surgery and he’ll be most interested to know Mike is going to have it also. The procedures aren’t bad but the casting is annoying. We love you!
