Well a little bit of a rough couple days for Carol. She got her xrays back from Harborview yesterday on her legs, hand, and arm.
Her right leg has 2 bone spurs which explain alot of the pain she has been having while trying to walk. Each are about a half inch long. The are between her fibia and tibia...one on each of them. Her left arm also has exposed bone again and needs to be corrected. All this means another leg surgery, and another arm surgery, and about 6 weeks of not using them at all. They are talking about doing another in hospital rehab after that. She will need to be refitted for all the prosthetics again after the recovery time. Something she needed soon anyway. She is pretty disheartened by all of it, but I think we both knew it was coming. The arm surgery will shorten it another 1/2 to 3/4 inch. The leg surgery shouldn't change the length. So another 1 step forward and a couple back.....the timing of all this is to be determined. On a brighter note, she finally got her computer today. It talks to her, and she can talk to it. She has a bunch of training on it over the future.
