Jon’s surgery lasted about 2 hours. Dr Shives said they had to remove about 50% of his thigh tissue –his muscle. He has his quadriceps left (top of the thigh) and some of his hamstring (on the bottom.) They also had to remove some of the end of the bone. Dr. Shives said he hopes it will be enough to support a prosthesis and hopes it will be better than removing the entire leg.
They will take him back into surgery on Wednesday. If it looks like they got all the dead tissue out and no infection is present, then they will close him up.
That’s all we know right now. Thank you for praying!
