Surgery Update

Friday, August 29, 2014

Hi Everyone,
This is Kathy's son Jamie. Mom had her surgery this morning and came through it just fine. Besides repairing the tear in her rotator cuff, the doctor also removed a lot of arthritis and a bone spur from her shoulder. She has done well so far and is at home resting this evening. She was even able to drink some Coke Zero, which is always a good sign with Mom. :)

She has to wear her sling non-stop for at least a week, and then her surgeon will re-evaluate her. We're not sure how long she is going to be unable to use her laptop, but I will post at least one more update on here for everyone. She misses all of you already and can't wait until she is able to be back.

Jamie

    I am so happy to hear your mom went through the surgery well. Thanks for keeping us up-dated. Tell her to be careful what she does with that arm. I am scheduled for surgery for the same thing, and my doctor told me that I shouldn't use the arm other than doing my pt for possibly 3 months. Doing things too early can prevent proper healing.

JAMER123 8/30/2014 12:34AM

    So happy to hear that all went well. Hoping she will recoup rapidly. Be sure to NOT use that arm/shoulder until allowed to let it heal well!! Sometimes we tend to push ourselves when feeling better. I know I am one of those for sure!! :-)D

May you carry in your heart always an extra special awareness of God's great love for you, may you feel his sweet and gentle touch upon your life, and may you see his miracles all around you. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen!
