Shane has just rested the last couple of days. The bandage was removed and the reason the Doctor had answered plenty to the question of the number of stitches is because I don’t think they could count them all. Looks like the outside incision is as big as the very first surgery, therefore he has a lot of stitches inside that will eventually dissolve and the stitches externally will be removed in two-four weeks. The Doctor looked at the wound on Friday and was pleased. The insurance denied Shane returning to Gaylord for therapy. The surgeon appealed and was denied, so we have made a last ditch appeal and should hear something on Monday. The alternative for his care is a sub-acute, which is similar to a nursing home. Got to love our private healthcare. Shane has just been resting and unfortunately has not been able to do any physical therapy this week. Please continue to pray. We want Shane to have the best possible outcome and to do that he needs the aggressive therapy. Your support is greatly appreciated.
