Once again, thank you to all of you for your support in the wake of John’s accident. (As this is a boating site, I thought I should use marine terminology!)
Thankfully, the surgeon expects John to make a complete recovery with full use of the leg, including hip flexion (he tore a hip flexor tendon insertion right off the bone). So we are very thankful for that.
Right now we’re seeing good improvement though the leg is still very acute (swollen, bruised, difficult to bend), so John won’t be released from hospital until that resolves.
The recovery process is going to be slow and I’m sure frustrating for John: six weeks with toe touch only using a walker, then limited weight bearing for a further period of time. In light of this we’ve rented an apartment here in St. John’s, Newfoundland for six weeks after which we’ll decide what to do and where to go next.
All I can say is how thankful we are for all the help we received and are receiving here in Newfoundland, for all the support we’ve received from friends and family, for the fact that John should get complete recovery, and for the fact that Morgan’s Cloud is safely tucked up in a shed in Maine! If this had to happen at least it happened now and here!
