Well, I have not written in over a week, because between all the work we have been doing around the house on Quarantine and me working at the hospital and at home. David has been working around the house – ALOT, and well he was putting in the dock he built and the ramp was stuck underneath – so he lifted it up and … POP! He has a partial distal bicep tear, so steroids and no improvement. We could do physical therapy, but was told 20-40% less strength would be the probable result, we asked about surgery, but in our area, non emergency surgeries are not being performed because our hospitals are FILLED with Covid patients. So at best it is a two week hold on surgeries and then his is in line behind over 100 patients who have more severe injuries. This is Dave with his dock. Proud even injured.
I have a cousin who is an orthopedic surgeon, he lives about 2.5hours away from us, but we got a second opinion, and he said he needs surgery sooner than later, they have openings for surgery tomorrow. So we are headed out early tomorrow to an outpatient surgery. We are accepting prayers for an easy surgery with no nerve damage and a speedy recovery. Should know more tomorrow.
We also cut down three trees, then chipped them up. Fixed a park bench I garbage picked from way back, it looks really good.
