I thought I should give you an update on our condition since our freak accident in Fredericksburg that was described a couple of posts earlier in this blog. Sandy, obviously because of her relative youth and vigor, is pretty much back to about 90 percent, awaiting her broken nose to heal fully.
I wasn't so lucky. I noticed at the time of the fall that I couldn't raise my right arm above my waist. While the other bruises and lacerations have healed, the mobility problem with my arm has remained. My fear of a rotator cuff injury was confirmed by an MRI yesterday, and I will be having surgery in Houston as soon as it can be arranged.
This, of course, will completely change our plans for summer travel, as I will need physical therapy for quite a while after the surgery. On the positive side, we will be able to spend more time here with our family and gush over our new grandson, Sutton.
I will be posting from time to time with progress reports, but these may not be all that often due to typing limitations with my right arm and my reluctance to turn this into a medical soap opera. In the meantime, we always appreciate being included in your prayers.
Thank you, Lord, for this wonderful life;
please forgive me if I fail to appreciate it as I should each day.
