Here’s the latest from Jim’s wife….B
First, Jim is doing well. (We have to remember it’s all relative.) They are going to fix his wrist in about an hour.
I made a mistake in my reporting. A happy one. It seems his broken leg and knee are one in the same. He has a ton of doctors and one was calling it a knee and one was saying leg. It’s actually his leg. It’s a tibia fracture immediately next to his knee. It’s a happy mistake because that means one less surgery. After today there’s only one more to go–that we know of–and that’s to close the belly wound. They cleaned and tightened that yesterday. They’ll do that every other day until it’s closed enough to withstand closing for real. The real fear now is infection. And there are a ton of other possible’s. But today, he’s doing well. The other thing I wanted to mention is this. We are blessed to have so many friends (and family) who care so much for him. While he still has a long, long way to go, unless something unthinkable happens, I’m going to every other day on the updates. I know some of you look first thing in the morning and get a little worried if you haven’t received it. Nothing is wrong–I just slept in!
Can’t think of anything else just now. I’ll talk to you Monday. As I keep saying, you all astound me. Thank you. Love and hugs,
