March 5th Stitches were removed and the FIFTH orthopedic device was put on. It is a hand brace to support and protect the two fingers.
Surgical incisions are healing well but the fingers are still very stiff and all the joints need to significantly increase mobility before Ray can effectively use this hand. There is still significant swelling in the joints.
The left shoulder has very restricted range of motion, shoulder was taped to offer additional support. Ray has begun a number of therapeutic rehab treatments to regain range of mobility and strength in his left shoulder and arm.
