Some may recall that all the way back in August he started a front end limp - its been a very long road with many twists and turns and its been horrible to see him trudge on with so much pain.
But on March 26th he had an arthroscopic procedure on his shoulder AND his elbow.
As I suspected since September, his biceps tendon was nearly completely torn. So they released that (aka cut it)
In February he was doing all the silly things he does which in this case was a crazy zoomie and suddenly he stopped and stood there holding up his leg. I knew something had happened and it did.
He tore another ligament (partial) and a piece of his elbow broke free (I realize its from an 'arm' bone but not sure which one). So they removed the piece of bone and had to smooth the joint out.
So we are in week two of recovery and he's doing well. The elbow seems to be the much bigger issue at this point. This makes me very, very angry because I was trying so hard to find someone that would do the arthroscope earlier but no one would.
I will be updating his blog frequently (its a recovery journal at this point) and I've been taking videos to track his progress.
I suppose the most important thing is that he is happy - not with being contained but overall he's happy. And we only have to try to stop him from doing things not try to get him to do things so I suppose that is good too
