Long Road To Recovery

Today's xrays and doctor's appointment revealed that Dave's femur shows only minimal healing. That means that he cannot bear weight on it for at least the next three weeks. The doctor also said that Dave needs to really work his right arm and wrist so that it straightens out and doesn't get scar tissue. The good news is that not only is it okay to go swimming in Mom's pool, but the doctor encouraged it! What a good way to get his strength back.

So for now we wait and hopefully heal. Plans are to head home at the beginning of May for physical therapy. The weather is beautiful and the pool is inviting, although only 73 degrees. Oh well, it will good to help get all the swelling to go down in his leg.

  1. Hang in there, Dave, and you, too, Carol. Might take longer, but healing will progress. Can Dave pull on a dive skin to help with the slightly chilly pool water? Good luck!
