Wish Us Luck

 

Wesley Chapel, Florida (high 80, low 70)

It’s been a busy few weeks.   Things will be slowing down for us after today because Al will be completely incapacitated for at least a few days, and will have 3 months of physical therapy.

Today is his third rotator cuff surgery on his right shoulder.   The doctor is not optimistic that there is enough tissue left for a successful repair.   We’re a little concerned.    If this doesn’t work, the only other option is a reverse partial shoulder replacement….whatever that means.  I’m not quite understanding how that would work with the damaged tissue, but I guess if/when the time comes, I’ll be doing some reading on the subject.

So, we’re off to the surgery center this morning.  Wish us luck.  He has the first surgery of the day, so we were happy about that.

  8. Wishing Al all the best for his surgery.
    Three months of PT doesn't sound encouraging but hopefully will do the trick.
    Maybe we'll still have time for a quick visit at the end of March.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
