Brother update....

current mood: happy

Well Tom called and he came through the surgery for his finger just fine. It took about an hour to get the bones back to where they should be with the rod and the pins. His hand is in a huge cast so he won't jar his finger to much, but they left 2 fingers and his thumb free so he can do some work on the computer. And he was told not to get the cast wet at all...because if he got a infection due to the wet cast he could be in deep trouble. He goes back in to weeks to have some x-rays done to see how it is healing and maybe give him a smaller cast.

Thanks pisces227 {{{{HUGS}}}}
So do we.He is to go back sometime this week to have it re-checked but we are not sure as to when. Also we found out that he has gotten a major case of the flu (even though he got the shot) and has not felt like doing much over the last week. We have called him more then once to find out how he is doing but he has yet to return our calls.Even my sil won't give us a update for some odd reason.

Unfortunately getting the flu shot doesn't guarantee you won't get the flu.
I hope he feels better soon and the bone dr gives him good news.
((hugs)) to everyone!

Yeah I know that...but this is the first time in all the years he has gotten the shot that it did not work. He did call and say that he felt a bit better (but still felt like crap). And I will let you know what his Dr. says about the break as soon as my brother updates us.
