Dear family and friends,
Alan is continuing to settle into his new rehab facility. Today, he went to CMC for an appointment with his orthopaedic surgeon, who performed the hip/pelvic surgery several weeks ago. After assessing Alan’s hip and pelvic area on both sides, the doctor determined that he can start to be weight bearing on his right leg (the side where the surgeons determined surgery would not be necessary) for transfer purposes. This opens up a whole new world of opportunities. Alan will go back for another follow-up in 4 weeks, and if all goes well, the doctor may take off the weight bearing restriction altogether at that time. All in all, a really good visit today.
For visiting Alan at the new facility, we ask that you limit your visits to the following hours:
During the week – 4pm until 7:30pm
Weekends – 1pm until 7:30pm
He is at the Pavilion at Brightmore in Ballantyne on West Providence Road, room 103.
We hope you all have a nice weekend, and thank you once again for the continued support.
Denise, Beth and Mark
