Friday Update

We just returned home from the Dr.'s office. Tommy's pin was too infected to tighten so they had to remove the pin and create a new pin site. He is now on two different antibiotics and pain meds. Hopefully he can sleep a little now.
His CTScan is scheduled for Sept 9th at 9:30. We are hoping the scan will show a significant amount of bone healing. The second part to the treatment decision moving forward is the amount of ligament damage. We will have more information on the 9th and be able to determine a direction. In the meantime, Tommy is at home not moving around a whole lot as we need the halo pins to stay firm for another week.

    Our prayers are with you, Tommy, for perfect bone healing and the least amount of ligament damage. Always in our thoughts, we know you will get through this. You are quite an amazing young man. Stay positive & strong and in time this will all be behind you. We love you. Uncle Jay, Auntie Susan, Joe, Matt & Sam.
