Hi all! It's been a while but I wanted to send a quick update on how Adam is doing since his surgery last week. His surgery on his left shoulder went wonderful last week. Dr. Wright told me he couldn't be more pleased! They went in and anchored his ligament back to his shoulder with anchors and suture. His will give him the posterior support he needs so that he doesn't dislocate his shoulder. He has a brace that he wears now and will have to wear for 6 weeks. For those of you that have seen it, you know what it looks like, and those of you that haven't...well it completely limits the movement/use of his left arm. But 6 weeks is nothing compared to the journey he has already been through! This is just the icing (not very good icing, but nonetheless) on the cake! He saw Dr. Wright today for his post-op appointment and he said that things look great and they took his stitches out and he will be able to start therapy for his shoulder again in 3 weeks.
Sunday there was a 5k walk/run for our cousin Danelle and her family following the early (really early) birth of their triplets. It was warm and we all figured that he'd walk as much as he could then walk back...Adam finished the entire 5k!!! AMAZING! Great job Adam!!! Keep up the hard work!
And on this beautiful Thursday evening, he was re-united with his baby girl, Sadie! Such an awesome time to have her back home and in our presence! What a true blessing she really is. We all missed her, but I don't think we all realized how much until she was home!!!
Thanks to all for the continued prayers for Adam and our family! Everyday I'm still amazed at the wonderful support the community has given. It's also amazing how many people will see him in public and come up and talk to him/our family and just let us know how good it is to see him up and moving! Thank you to all the family, friends, community members and strangers that helped get him to where he is!!! There is no doubt in my mind that God had quite a few angels with him that night!!!
And there is your quick update! Night all!
Here's a pic of Adam during the walk and of his contraption!
