Quick post to let you all know that Pamela came through the surgery well. The damage was a little more extensive than the MRI showed, but the Dr. was able to fix everything within the time he had predicted. Technically, Pam’s “capsule” was not only stretched, but also “de-laminated”. The Dr. basically did a “gather” stitch on the capsule in 2 areas to tighten it up around the ball. She is in some pain, but has a nerve block in her neck to keep her shoulder numb. She also has a “cryo-pac” that keeps icewater on the shoulder, and an immobilizing sling. It’s very sad to look at her, but she is doing well as long as she can sleep. She will have the nerve block removed on Monday. Pray for her that the pain will be bearable, and that she will be faithful to do the PT required.
Thank you all for your kind words and prayers. She so appreciates it, as do we all.
Have a blessed day!
