Hip Surgery for Ambrose

Please keep Ambrose in your prayers, he will be having surgery on his hip this Thursday, March 8. The procedure is going to correct Ambrose's displaced hip once and for all. The pelvic side of the hip joint has not formed properly (it is flat instead of concave), so the doctor is going to graft a wedge of bone into the pelvis above the joint, sculpting it into the proper "socket" shape. The image below shows the bone graft coming from the top of the pelvis, but Ambrose will be receiving donor bone instead. The surgery will require general anesthesia, an overnight stay, as well as a body cast for 8 to 12 weeks. We will update after he comes out of surgery.

  1. Very interesting post with various opinions on promotion. Bumped into it after finding your most current post on FB, which, incidentally, I really don't like :-) Too much of what I do, other than KDP, is the "drive by" type of promo, or is only intended to Like or Follow other authors. I also love Pinterest, but it's mainly for me
