Doctors decided transporting him to Johns Hopkins would be too risky at this point, so they operated on him at their local hospital. They re-opened his incision and drained more puss than expected, choosing to leave the incision open in case they needed to clear it again. They hope the infection hasn't reached the metal plates they just implanted, which would greatly complicate his recovery. Brodie had just healed enough to begin walking, so the infection and surgery are big setbacks for the little guy. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he starts his recovery all over again.
