HS Associates,
Scott’s hand doctor removed his cast today and took out the pins and screws in 
his thumb and wrist.  The doctor said it looks good.  Scott will start PT on 
his left hand tomorrow.  Right now he can barely move his thumb but he will 
regain good range of motion (hopefully full range of motion) with time and PT.
As for his leg, I spoke with his orthopedic doctor today and he said there is 
still too much swelling around the knee to operate on the leg.  Plus, the 
wounds around his ankle are not healed sufficiently to scrub the leg for 
surgery.  He also said, because of the passage of time, he may decide not to 
install plates and screws in his knee.  They like to install the plates and 
screws in a knee fracture early on but, since it was not possible in Scott’s 
case, there may be no gain in doing it at this point.  He said the x-rays show 
that the break at the knee is healing nicely but he will make the final 
determination regarding internal fixation after he gets Scott into surgery.
So Scott will remain at Genesis until September 4th when they transport him 
back to University for his next out-patient pre-op appointment.  If everything 
looks good, he will return to University for his next surgery on September 9th.
