Tendon Update: Everything Healing Nicely
Some folks have inquired about the tendon surgery from last week. I appreciate very much the concern and especially the prayers! Everything seems fine so far. I had a solid cast for the first week but for the past week and for the next five weeks I have a hinged brace that allows me to type with both hands. The physical therapy will continue for a month or two thereafter, depending on how quickly the tendon heals.
It's an inconvenience to be sure, but I can take the brace off to shower (a relief to my long-suffering family!) and, since I can't get a dress shirt over it or tie a tie, I still get to wear polo shirts to the newsroom It's gonna be so hard going back to the braces and tie thing!
Anyway, thanks again for the inquiries and prayers.
