A Slight Set Back
Well the weakness in his left arm didn't go away and then the right arm started to have weakness, so they went back in to check everything out. Another long day with surgery. They didn't find anything but they repositioned the hardware they put in slightly and open the nerve endings more. This helped with the right arm, but the left is no better. Basically he can use the hand, but he can't lift the arm (so it's more a shoulder type issue I believe). They think physical therapy will help with this as they have seen this before and it's just something they have to wait and see with. No guarantees...but hubby is in good spirits, I'm hanging in there. My sister has come down to stay with me.
As of now, the other surgery scheduled for Friday is off.
