You might be wondering what that is.

That is the screw that Dr. Feldman removed from Dovi's leg on Tuesday.

With a screwdriver.

I've mentioned in the past that Dovi had a screw from his surgery in April sticking out of his bone. No, not out of his skin. It was bulging under his skin-you could feel the top-but didn't break through his skin (yikes. If that had happened I would have. freaked. out. extremely. much)

So Dr. Feldman removed the screw.

It was no biggie. (ha)

I asked him how it came out.

"with a screwdriver, of course"

And then he gave it to me to keep.

As a souvenir, y'know.

Here it is to look at again.

Yes, it's almost as long as the bottle of eye drops.

And it was in his bone. Now it is in my purse.

Hi! My name is Sarah and I'm a long-time follower of your blog but a first-time commenter. I'm a college student who works with special needs kids. I also follow more than 200 blogs, and I'm sending a very special message to all the blogs I follow: YOU have the chance to be part of a miracle!

Chase Community Giving is awarding $1 million to 5 charities! The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is working to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy - and they could use the money!

Fast Facts:
- SMA is the #1 genetic killer of infants under the age of 2
- 50% of those diagnosed will not live to see their 2nd birthday
- kids with SMA lose the ability to sit, stand, walk, talk, eat, swallow, and breathe
- 1 in 40 people is a carrier
- the National Institute of Health says that SMA is the #1 CURABLE disease if given research funding
- right now there is NO cure and NO treatment

Want to change that? Vote for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation on the Chase Community Giving app on Facebook! You have five votes to tell the world that you want a CURE for SMA!

Tell your friends and blog contacts - let them know they could be part of a MIRACLE - be part of a CURE - and give kids a FUTURE!
