Wrist Update

Tom went to see the wrist surgeon and the doctor said that his wrist is broken in four places. Since it is such a bad break he will need surgery to realign the broken bones and to implant a titanium plate and pins to maintain proper position of his bones. The surgery will probably take place on Saturday. For a few days after the procedure the pain will be worse than when he had the bone set, but he will soon regain the use of his fingers. He won't be able to lift anything for 2 months. He is actually doing really well and is able to do everything himself except for getting on his shirt. He was even able to take care of the kids while I went to the dentist. Wish him luck!
