Need My Curly Friends Positive Vibes & Prayers

My grandson has to have surgery. He's 11. I babysat him & his sister last weekend & he told me his left knee was hurting him. He got worse to where he was crying & couldn't sleep. My daughter took him to the DR on Monday & he has a mass on his knee. Fortunately, it isn't cancerous. He is going to the DR tomorrow to schedule the surgery to have it removed. I'm going to have him with me during the day as he recovers since both my daughter & her husband both work full time.
From Michael Berg:

Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    I'll keep him in my thoughts and send positive thoughts your way. That's very scary for an 11 year old, hope he's dealing with it ok.

    Positive thoughts and prayers headed your way!! I am sure he will be fine. My youngest nephew (just started 8th grade) has had 2 knee surgeries in the past 3 years and he has breezed thru them. Kids are more resilient. They are back on their feet before you know it.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    Thank you ladies. I didn't sleep much last night. I'm sure he will be fine, but of course I'm going to worry.

    Lotsa, he'll be fine, and he'll have a great story to tell all his friends.

    I had knee surgery when I was 12. I breezed through the surgery but the recovery was painful. I will pray for him.

    Trying to figure out porosity - medium to low, I think? Medium texture, rapidly greying, and free of dye/relaxers since 2010.

    I love all of you ladies. I haven't heard yet about when the surgery will be taking place. Hopefully, my daughter will call when she gets off work.

    Finally talked to my daughter. Her Dr said the mass was large & wrapped around his knee. Said there were blood veins attached. He doesn't feel he should do the surgery, so he referred them to a pediatric surgeon. He has an appointment on Friday at 12:30. Will know more then.

    Hopefully he will be referred to the best around and they will be able to do something to give him relief. It's no wonder his knee has been hurting so bad. Keep us updated please.

    I can't stop crying tonite. Poor baby is in so much pain. He really needs some relief. When my daughter told him he would be recovering at my house after the surgery, he wanted to come see me tonite. We are very close. He rode his bike a mile to my house one day unexpectedly just to ask me if I need any help. He helped me clean my aquarium. I offered him money & he refused saying we are family. I did make him take the money. He"s my baby love.

    Aaaawww, Lotsa. I'm sorry this situation is making you so anxious. All you can really do is be patient. What a sweet kid...one in a million!

    I'm going to spend time with him this weekend. He needs to know I'm here for him. He's so special to me becuz I had 2 daughters & 2 granddaughters. A little boy was a very pleasant surprise. He was 5 weeks early & we almost lost him. He was in intensive care hooked up to a respirator & I sang a song to him that I always sang to my daughters thinking he wasn't going to make it. This little boy is taller than me now & weighs as much as me. He just started middle school & is in all advance classes. I'm so proud of him. His family doesn't go to church, but he rides his bike to a nearby church every Wednesday nite to attend. They have a great kids program there.

    Has he had the surgery yet?

    Does he have a sister or is he an only child?

  • LotsawavesLotsawaves Registered Users Posts: 9,777 Curl Virtuoso
    No surgery yet. He goes to a new surgeon tomorrow to see if he can do the surgery. He has a younger sister. She is 10. 18 months younger. She is my minnie me. LOL!

    My grandson saw the Pediatric Surgeon today. He doesn't want to do surgery. He feels the mass may respond to sclerosis injections. They are trying to get an appointment at Phoenix Children's Hospital for this.

  • StarmieStarmie Registered Users Posts: 7,169 Curl Virtuoso
    That sounds unpleasant, but it has to be better than surgery. Hope they get an appointment soon. Have they given him anything to help with the pain?

    Nothing has been prescribed for the pain. It's worse at night & in the morning. They are using ice packs at those times.

    I'm surprised he hasn't been prescribed something for the pain. Why not?

    Continuing to hope for better news here. Please keep us updated.

    I'm not sure. Maybe becuz of his age & also that it isn't continually painful.

    So as we have been waiting to get my grandson in for his injections, my daughter went to her dr & found out she has an ovarian cyst & is scheduled for surgery next Wednesday.
