Exciting News! Sort of...


The Hubs has been going through a lot of medical difficulties the last year or so. Doctor after doctor, diagnosis after diagnosis, treatment after treatment and....nothing. No improvement and very few answers. Bring on the frustration!

For those of you who don't know (I have some new followers -Hello and welcome to you all!) the Hubs has been having severe pain in his arms and shoulders along with weakness and loss of dexterity/muscle tone.

Yesterday, after a few more diagnostic tests with an orthopedic surgeon, the conclusion was reached that Hubs needs surgery on his right shoulder...the left will come later. The surgery will involve both his shoulder and his bicep which will have to moved and reattached. Um, the bicep not the shoulder.

Anyway, we're happy to have some sort of action towards his recovery but we're tense because, well, it's surgery. We know it may not completely solve everything that's bothering him with his arms but it's certainly a step in the right direction!

Well, even though there are still unkowns it is nice to at least have a direction! That is good news indeed:)

Better surgery than have them tell you no clue.

I hope this is the answer you've been looking for. I know how frustrating and upsetting it is to know something is wrong, and be without answers and treatment.

Well, finally some progress. Although the prospect of surgery is daunting. Prayers, baby.
