We got to physical therapy and they started him off with a bang. They had him stand up with a walker, which he is having a really hard time with. As I mentioned before he has lost 43 pounds of muscle, so his arms do not want to hold him up. He stood for a minute then sat back down. When he stands he complains of extreme pain in his left knee. He also said it keeps popping which hurts like hell. The therapist got him up again for a second time and he made it a minute 15 seconds. By then he was hurting really bad. They put some ice on his knee and then did some strengthening exercises laying down.
This afternoon we finally opened the images discs that the hospital gave me from his stay in County for his future doctors. Below you will find the images of his broken legs. (If you click on them they get bigger)
Tibia/Fibia Compound Fracture
As you can see his breaks were really serious. Hence why he is having such a hard time standing, let alone walking. Today the Doctors had a conference to discuss Lenny's progress and course of treatment. From today we are looking at 2 to 3 more weeks. Hopefully 2 weeks, maybe sooner depending on how he progresses, but only time will tell.
Mishell has to go home again tomorrow so she is going to be checking out of the hotel. Since I am here in the hospital every night now there is no reason to keep it. I am trying to lay low here in the hospital so they don't kick me out.
Some people have been inquiring as to where to send things to Lenny, so if you are looking for the address please email me at email@example.com.
All in all we are doing well, and as promised here are pictures....
