Tom Update..........

January 8th, 2007 (05:10 pm)

current mood: happy

Well Tom had the pins (are in fact screws) removed from his hand today as planed...what he did not know was that after they had taken off the cast was that the Dr. was going to remove the pins with no pain killers at all!! The reason is if they numbed him up then they would not see what kind of range of motion he had in his hand after the pins were removed....*OUCH*. The Dr. just held his hand down down on a table so my brother could not move it and just pulled the pins out. Tom is in a lot of pain and he still has to be very careful of the hand for the next month or two while it gets stronger with the PT he has go have get regain the movement in the hand he lost due to the cast and pins.

Thanks pisces227 {{{HUGS}}}} and so do we all....but something like this will take some time to heal, and you would not want to rush it.
