Tommy begins physical therapy!
We are almost at the 7 month mark post injury and Tommy has started physical therapy. Two weeks ago Tommy had xrays which showed the fracture lines have disappeared. Although the bones are not perfectly aligned the fractures have healed. He was able to remove the brace and left the office a free man! He said it was "good to feel wind on his neck". We are so grateful! Tommy will return to radiology for a CT Scan in 6 weeks. We are hoping he remains stable and will not need the surgical fusion.
Once again, thank you everyone for all your support throughout this process. We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful family and amazing friends.
Tommy and I will be in Sacramento in January attending a National Athletic Trainers Assoc. Call to Action Summit. Tommy is a living testimony to the serious need for qualified, certified and licensed athletic trainers caring for our athletes. We need to get this very important bill passed in the state of California!
We wish you all a very Happy Holiday....thanks again for all the prayers,thoughts,letters,emails etc.
