So cam is 100% crutch free now! 7 weeks post op.... Not too shabby!

Ortho visit yesterday. Doc says it looks like they cut some tendon or muscle stuff away when they inserted the rod, which is why he has a dominant drop in his left side. He's hoping that it will regenerate enough to fix the swing step he has when walking. But if it doesn't, then he will have that funny walk for life....sigh.

We shall see!

It's been 8 weeks since his accident, but feels like 8 months !

Update on Cam! Full walking without assistance, next week is his MRI for spleen, and he is at 80% walking with 100% range of motion.
There was a tendon not reattached by his hip when they inserted the femur rod. So as it heals and strengthens, he will hopefully lose the DIP in his walk
