We got the stitches out last Thursday. Dr. Gove said that the skin looked 'pretty good'. Paula started physical therapy last Friday and will go three time a week for a month or two. Right now there are still big scabs on the inside of the elbow, with scars on both sides of her elbow across, and now with the last surgery another incision scar about 8 inches on the inside of her arm. With help, her elbow can extend to 40 degrees, she can move her fingers and thumb an inch or so, and her wrist about the same. Her skin is trying to attach itself to the muscle so Paula has to push and rub her arm and right on the incision. She has had to continue on the higher pain medicine due to physical therapy and the home therapy. Thank you so much for all the support, prayers and help. We have no idea what we would do without it!!!
