HS Associates,
Scott and I met with his doctor at Shock Trauma for his pre-op appointment this 
morning and, although the lower leg wounds are still not healed enough for the 
next ankle surgery and there is still quite a bit of swelling in the leg, the 
doctor wants to get him into the OR on Wednesday, Sept. 9th for 2 reasons:  (1) 
to do another skin graft on a small wound above his ankle adjacent to the 
existing skin graft in order to expedite healing, and (2) to remove the rods 
and pins stabilizing his knee and to bend his knee to determine if the bones 
have healed sufficiently to forego knee surgery and to begin PT on that knee.  
If the doctor is satisfied that the knee does not need surgery, the rods and 
pins will stay out and he should be able to begin PT on that knee very soon – 
hopefully at Kernan.  If the doctor thinks knee surgery is necessary, the rods 
and pins will go back in and that surgery will be put off, along with the ankle 
surgery, for another
 couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, the existing skin graft looks great and there is 
no sign of infection anywhere in the leg.  So overall, we are pleased with the 
doctor’s plan and feel that progress is being made.  I’ll send out another 
update after his surgery next Wednesday.
Everyone have a safe and happy holiday weekend!!
