into the tunnel... and out the other side

the metaphoric tunnel that is. Dad's surgery went well. Unfortunately he won't have use of his arm for 6 weeks or so. Which means, he won't have use of any arm for 6 weeks :(.

Dad was struck (stricken?) with polio when he was a baby so he only has real use of his right arm. the left arm is just kinda held in place by a pin in his shoulder and elbow (at a right angle). he can use his left hand, but it really isn't of much use without the rest of the arm.

Anyway, as he found out right away. It's going to take a lot of patience and help.

and hopefully I don't have Pink Eye so we can go over tonight and help out.
